I'll add that, as with any VCS, FrameMaker's binary files are going to
consume vast quantities of storage, compared to ASCII (text) files. If
you can script a process (or edit FM's controls) that makes it easy to
always save as MIF, you will save storage (only diffs get checked in)
and you will be able to merge if necessary (with all the varied success
that comes with, e.g., nothing easily merges two conflicting edits of
the same content or object reference like an image file name).

Hi,
Anybody know of a way to use FrameMaker (unstructured) with Team
Foundation Server?
We are storing MadCap Flare projects in TFS but I want to start putting
FrameMaker projects there too.
Thanks for any advice.
Steve
