    Well,

    Basically there are about 30 people i need to co-manage and the person above me doesn't have a fucking clue.

    15 of the people are half way around the world so we can literally work 24/7. We work for 8 hours. Submit everything, 4 hours later, they come and use their 8 hours to carry on developing etc.

    Basically i need a good configuation management suite for the project. I've been looking at subversion as it seem very, very good. However, are there any better tools? I don't care about cost, just something thats easy enough to implement & use incase of rollbacks & changes etc.

    This is my first management job, and my first cross site one too, so just want to make sure everything goes (relatively) smoothly!

    i don't really care about the IDE it works with, just aslong as its relatively well known!

    Hopfully someone can throw a few ideas around,

    Cheers,

    Jamie

    We have been using subversion for about 4 or 5 years now and it works really well, we also used CVS in the past, but SVN is better in my opinion, if you need any help setting it up let me know

    do you use it standalone or with an IDE? since we're using eclipse atm i was thinking of just using the plugin and integrating everything like that, as it'd make things easier.

    I've not used it (yet), but a good friend told me to use it.

    Is it easy enough for everyone to see what needs changing / editing etc. and check out the files?

    I figured i can do most of my management through this thats all and seriously reduce my stress & workload!

    PS - didn't see that link. Thats a great resource. Thanks!

    I believe we are using it with an IDE, I am pretty sure it is not eclipse though but i need to check with the developers

    Also look at this, this could help you manage things using trac and svn http://wiki.kartbuilding.net/index.php/Trac_and_SVN and this http://svnbook.red-bean.com/

    I have used SVN and it really is a good source code control tool, gets the job done. Have not used the plugin with eclipse though, but svn itself is reliable and have not had any issues with that.
