I want to start using svn for my projects. I'm a one person company. I want to use it for revision control, archiving/backup, as well as deployment (eventually). And from time to time, I work with subcontractors or collaborate with others.
For starters, would you just check in the whole rails generated directory (including any plugins, tmp files etc) or do you cherry pick the directories to check in? The latter makes more sense but seems a pita and error prone (forgetting to commit some files).
I figure initially I'll just use a repository on my localhost. Soon enough, I expect to move it to my internet server.
On the other hand, Google Code looks pretty promising. http://code.google.com/ It uses subversion too.
Also, I'm on Mac OSX, and see there are some GUI's for svn, which maybe i could use with the local repro, an internet repro, and/or google code. Anyone here have experience with these? www.lachoseinteractive.net/ , zigversion.com
Any other suggestions for strategy and implementation would be helpful.
