Nope, I'm pretty clueless in this area. I mean, I've used RCS and BCS (BCS =
RCS with branching, done at Carnegie Mellon), and then at Microsoft I've
used SLM (pronounced Slime) and more recently Visual SourceSafe. I know
there are really fancy systems out there based on repositories and/or object
oriented databases, but I don't know anything about them.
I have a friend (Steve) who (if I remember correctly) did his thesis on
source control systems - but that was several years ago and I don't know if
he's been tracking the literature or the market.
P.S. Sexy? Remember, you're talking to someone who has fun writing device
drivers and file systems :-)

Random query, here... and up front, yes, I realize that
this is about
as far from sexy as one can get. ;-) Anyone have any
detailed comparisons, formal or informal case histories,
various SC / CM systems, both free and commercial?
Thanks in advance,
