Hello Arthur...hope you're doing well. The portion of your answer that
I retained above is probably the most common doubt any newcomer to SCM
will have. Could you please point me to the articles that you'd
written previously on how to select an SCM tool?

My question in detail:

How do you really classify a business deliverable? Is it along the
lines of whether you deploy compiled code or scripted code? Or along
the lines of programming languages used for the source? Or packaging
procedures? Suppose we deliver a big, heavy JPEG or something of a
flowchart idea as our product.....or an RPM on Linux.....or a
digitised movie.....or a PDF document...or GPS data in a CSV does a deliverable like these influence your choice of an
SCM tool? I've just used random examples but I hope you understood my
perplexity here!
