Subject:version control with Continuus? From:"Paige Hester" <phester -at- va -dot- com> To:techwr-l Date:Tue, 16 Nov 1999 09:54:13 -0500
I've done some research in the archives on this thread but haven't found
exactly what I'm looking for.
I work for an e-commerce start-up company whose priority has been anything
but document tracking. As the lone technical writer, I've been tasked with
coming up with a system for version control of documents--mostly documents
that project managers and programmers create during phases of software
development. My company is in the process of migrating from VSS to Continuus
for change management. I've seen VSS mentioned many times in the archives
but few references to Continuus.
I know that it's possible to store and track versions of documents with
Continuus, and I'd like to know if others have experience doing so. If you
do, do you use Continuus alone for version control or do you use other
product(s) as a supplement? Do you have any other recommendations for
setting up a version control system with Continuus?
