Sharepoint 2007 as version control

P: n/a
Hi All,

Sharepoint 2007 has version control capability, what's your take on using it
as the main version control software for a .Net project of about 1 million
LOC? Is anyone use it for development version control system?

Thanks,

Wenlei

Thanks, Marc.

I'm happy with Totoise SVN/Subversion which we currently are using. It is
suggested by someone (guess who) SharePoint 2007 can be our version control
system for our development team. Just check with the rest of the gang before
I reply "what'd you say".

Best Regards,

Wenlei,

If you are going to look at Microsoft Solutions for source control,
Sharepoint would definitely not be my first choice. Rather, you should be
looking at Team System, which offers source control, but also, much, much
more in terms of the tools that are integrated into the suite which can help
greatly (for example, run builds and unit tests when source is checked in,
reject checkins if they fail, etc, etc).

While it would give you fair versioning, auditing and granular security to
the code base elements of your project, tied with its in-built task
allocation to help actually run the deliverable, the complexities of having
to maintain what is in effect a collaboration system tightly tied to Office,
not Visual Studio would certainly push me to another tool for source
control. The alerts on code base changes would certainly be interesting
however, as would its ability to accept code via email direct to a
repository.
