Is anyone using Perforce as a document/source control program with FrameMaker? And in conjunction with bookfiles containing over 50 document files, and hundreds, if not thousands, of linked images and cross-references? on a Windows platform?

If so, how does it work for you?

Do you store the binary files, or use a tool like FrameScript to convert it to MIF files before storage?

And if you convert to MIF files, are you actually able to back out changes (i.e., does the versioning work correctly without damaging the structure to the MIF files)?

If you are using it, are you using it because you wanted to?

Are you happy with it?

(just full of questions for a Thursday, aren't I?)
