Hi,

we use AccuRev in our company and it's great (http://www.accurev.com[^]).

It has some goodies:

- Good concept: so called 'streams' define, which files and which versions of them should be in use. If you put a workspace at a particular stream, you get exactly these files/versions.

- Streams can be ordered in a hierarchical way and streams inherit files/versions from their parent stream. This makes 'staging' easy (alpha - beta - release candidate, etc.).

- Issue tracking is built-in: Group all changes of files you have made for a specific task into an 'issue'. The issue can then be handled as one configuration item, e.g. to be put into another stream. The abstraction to handle whole issues instead of single files is very effective. (though it's still transparent down to the files).

- No more tag or labels needed - make a snapshot in seconds. Need bugfixes of a snapshot version? Simply put a stream at the snapshot and continue working there.

- Linux symbolic links and Windows' junctions can be handled.

- GUI and CLI, equal for Windows and Linux.

- The repository backups are easy and can be done while the server is running.

- ..and many more.. Wink | ;-)

best regards,
pink ink
