For geographically or otherwise dispersed teams, distributed SCMs like
GIT or Mercurial do best, but SVN has a lot of tools and community
behind it and with latest 1.5 supposedly supporting merge tracking,
the differences are negligible for simple projects and I'd go with SVN
SVN also has a lot of good reference and tutorial materials.
Another option for DITA topics would be to integrate within Eclipse,
if you're familiar with the environment.
