These include such things as revision or version control, branch and tip commit and merging tools, bug and issue tracking, design and documentation control, make and code compiling and building systems.

  • 2008-May-27: The pysvn package provides a Python interface to the subversion revision control system. This article discusses using pysvn to interact with the GoogleCode system. [6239] [1]

  • 2008-Apr-11: The Dr. Project team writes a bit about some of the other project management systems on the market. [5770]
  • 2008-Apr-07: Using Bazaar to hack on Twisted, talks about using a DVCS (distributed version control system) to coordinate work in an off-line environment for a project that is normally tracked by a conventional centralized version control system. The discussion here is for using Bazaar to work on a project in Subversion, but the same approach could be used with other DVCS systems like Mercurial. [5617]
  • 2008-Feb-10: roundup is an issue-tracking system with command line, web and email interfaces written in Python. [5075]
  • Subversion, an aternate version control system, is nearing its first production release. [5603]
  • Slashdot debates source code version control systems [5602]

  • An article that has a quick overview of many of the modern revision control systems. [4744]
  • GIT (main page here) is the revision control system initially developed by Linus for the Linux kernel (manual page here), he mentions it briefly in this article. A talk by Linus on GIT is here, in which he rants against CVS and SVN (some of which is quite well deserved) and even Google. Currently it it requires Cygwin to run under Windows, and as such, it runs slower under Windows than on a Linux host. GIT gets mentioned here along with a discussion of branch merging in Subversion. A brief comparison of mercurial and git. Another comparison that talks about how git's branching is more powerful than mercurial's. GitPython is a Python library that can work with Git repositories, so if you need to do something tedious or complicated there is a chance you could automate it with this and some Python code. [4743]
  • A Slashdot discussion of ticket tracking and customer management systems. [4742]
  • A discussion of tracking changes in the contents of files (which is what programmers normally think of) versus changes in the name or location of files (which is more of interest to systems administrators). [4741]
