Well, it’s certainly not ideal for this use, but I’m using subversion for this.

…whereas I’m more old-skool and using CVS. (Not old-skool enough to
use raw RCS, though.)

My (limited) experience with Subversion is that when it breaks, it
really truly breaks; an afternoon spent trying to repair a SVN
database is not very rewarding.

Also, MacCVSClient can handle data+resource forks.

CNMAT is using subversion, which is explained pretty thoroughly in a paper we just submitted to ICMC.

Great for externals, ok for patches.

You got that working?

I had tons of issues getting subversion on the mac to play nice with
max patches and any other resource forks etc, especially with max
binary format patches. (see the archive for details).

Id love to see that paper, or any workflow tips you have.

What I found is that binary max patches work fine _IF_ the patches
are named with the .pat extension.

I haven’t tried files with resource forks. You would probably need to
zip them for them to work. I haven’t found that many resource forked
files these days. I do have problems with Mac application bundles.
