Yes, my problem is I have a ** lot** of work, and currently I can't
spend the necessary time to learn and use a revision control system.
I hope it will change someday...
I'm just a lurk who's going to jump into kicad soon and for me that really
counts if this project is held under a revision control system.
With very little effort, you will quickly be acquainted with the basic and
most useful svn commands. It takes a bit of extra time to make commits and
updates, mostly because it requires a bit of rigor to do them well. But
that pays off nearly immediately as the project development improves in
clarity and you soon won't be able to live without the logs and diffs,
that will make you save a lot of time. You can then slowly learn new
features as you feel the need for it.
I personally even use svn for projects I'm the only developer, that's a
drug ;-) We have a community project here and the main developer comes
from the windows world and has always been a solitary programmer. He's not
used to SVN and its spirit and that makes it very hard for him and the
community to work together.
btw, is there any plans to get a check-ins mailing-list? GMANE is also a
great newsgroup interface to mailing lists and it would be interesting to
use it too.
Anyway, thanks for what really looks like a great product and I'm going to
give it a try soon.
