Open source projects are planned, developed and maintained often using accessible Revision Control systems (e.g. Bazaar, CVS, Git, Mercurial or SVN), Collaboration (blogs, forums, IRC channels, mailing-lists and wikis) and Tracking Systems (e.g. bugzilla, GNATS, OTRS, trac). Despite going through them all can be time-consuming, those are the primary source of information to know more about an open source project.
On the 28th of April OpenLogic will run a webinar to provide a comparison of key attributes – included market share and community participation – for the leading open source Source control management tools, including Bazaar, CVS, Git, Mercurial, and Subversion.
Other topics covered in this webinar will include:
Which open source SCM tools are best at branching, merging, and tagging
Client/server vs. single repository SCM tools
Peer-to-peer vs. distributed system SCM tools
How the leading open source SCM tools compare to commercial alternatives
