I know that there's threads with recommended articles about versioning
and it's not that I'm a lazy beggar
(I swear! I'm unfortunately weeks after a new xp install still busy
with sorting out problems &, I confess, tweaking ...)
but maybe someone could give me a bit of direction re versioning (then
I'll start reading!)maybe I should start by explaining what I would like:
I'm working on a drawing, lets say a contour map.
I'll save it as "Map"
then I save versions as maybe
Map03e (so it lists alphabetically - from d to e)
that works reasonably well but I would like a way of attatching
comments that I can easily printout with a file list or simply with associated file name
Lets say I want to send on Map3f to whoever,
it would be great to be easily access/copy the "changelog" from the previous version so I can tell them the important changes made,
or even to access the whole changelog from version one
I have glanced (thats all..) at tortoise svn etc - they do seem to be aimed at developers but may be suitable ?
Or then there's Filehamster (http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=7492.0
which saves versions but
1) I'm not sure how accessible these versions are outside Filehamster
2) not sure how accessible the comments are
3) I save files sometimes very
often - I have a horror of having to redo stuff
I dont want a new version for each save & think
that''s what Filehamster does
Then there's the possibility to add comments in ntfs ? (descript.ion files in DOpus ?)
as I say humbly looking for a bit of direction/help,
not afraid to go in the deep end, but naturally the easier the better!!
