  • This is one of the things I really like about the current crop of DVCS. You can create your own repo so easily, and so quietly, that it turns into a "do it and move along" operation. Running a local Subverion repo is close, but not quite as good (especially since setting up a local DVCS is not as permanent a decision).

    I recently did this for our big product at work. The official system is Source Safe, which is hard for me to like very much. I checked all the code into a private Mercurial repo, which I use for local commits, and tracking changes from other developers. It's lovely!

    • People still use Source Safe? Even Microsoft doesn't use it and they developed it. I've used Source Safe in the past and all I can say is "never again".

      • Yeah, it's pretty awful. I've been making a more official push for something better, but my requests are being ignored or redirected. In the meantime, my private Mercurial repo gives me a safety net and helps me sleep a little sounder.

      • We do at work...I scream like a Wookie everytime I have to use it.
