What software do you use for source control of help and documentation files?
We are trying to get organized and are looking for some source control system
that interfaces well with RoboHelp, FrameMaker, and Dreamweaver. Is there
such an animal?

We are starting a huge help project and will have multiple writers working on
it. Some are authoring the HTML topics in RoboHelp; some are authoring them
in Dreamweaver and then importing them into RoboHelp. Our FrameMaker manuals
so far have each been authored by a single writer, but we do need version
control of the Frame docs and automated backups.


Create HTML or Microsoft Word content and convert to Help file formats or
printed documentation. Features include support for Windows Vista & 2007
Microsoft Office, team authoring, plus more.

True single source, conditional content, PDF export, modular help.
Help & Manual is the most powerful authoring tool for technical
documentation. Boost your productivity!
