I'm looking for documentation groups to beta test a version control software
product that handles all Windows application files (Word, WordPerfect, Excel,
The product is currently released as a programmer's version control product and
is popular with the Visual Basic crowd. The released product is "written by
geeks for geeks" so it's relatively ugly, but the underlying code is stable. My
team is modifying the user interface to appeal to a more general audience.
It's easy to use and does not require an administrator so "time overhead" is
minimal. I'll be asking beta sites to provide feedback on interface design and
to assess the "completeness" of the function set as it relates to doc groups.
I'm not a list subscriber (now -- but I was, and hope to be again), so posting a
