TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.

You don't mention CVS (Concurrent Versioning System, an open-source
package), and I've wondered for a while whether it would be any good at
version control for docs. It seems to have a lot of advantages (besides
being open-source), such as having clients on a huge number of platforms
<http://cvshome.org/dev/codes.html> and servers on almost as many.
Cross-platform support always turns out to be useful for any tool, when
it's available, even if it isn't an up-front requirement.
So, if anyone has experience with CVS to control docs, please post on
that as well...
