Call that living? ;-)

Our company migrated from CVS to svn to hg (with git for open embedded projects).

Everybody fled CVS with a deep sigh of relief... Some die hards still cling to svn (well, that "copying is cheap, everything is a copy" paradigm is sort of neat).

Most have moved on to hg. Last time we had a close look, file renames and branch merges were just sooo much smoother in hg than svn)

Curiously enough the "The True Name of a File is it's Contents" approach of git means that file renames and copies and branch merges work very well too.

I enjoy using git on a daily basis for everything I work on. It made my work much more comfortable. The next step will be to store all configs in a single git repository with a separate branch for every machine.

That's a good idea.

Right. I recently got a router because my old one went down. I have SSH set up on port 443 and OpenWRT installed. I am going to create a bare repository on my router and access it from anywhere in the world or use Github for that purpose.

Binary or FODF?

Are you using the regular binary ODF formats, or the flat-xml versions?

(Just curious about how the FODF formats are working out in version control for people in the real world )

I use binary ODF format, but have git configured to filter it through odt2txt before diff-ing.
Code:
[diff "ODF"]
	textconv = odt2txt
I make the same with MSOffice files (filter through antiword)
This way I have readable diffs in all tools like git gui or gitk, for the price of ignoring most formatting. And the comfort of having all documents under easy version control is priceless

Interesting. I use Latex for writing anything more complicated. I wrote my CV, my master's thesis and several long documents at work using Latex. It works great with git.

One more thing, can you share your experience how reliable antiword is? Does it work well for Word documents with multiple tables? I work in a corporate environment and people will often send complicated Word documents such as proposals, sometimes several times a week with some minor changes. It would be great if I could just generate git diff on them. And I would love to have something similar for Excel files.

It does extract text, which allows to peek inside documents from git tools. Don't expect miracles when diffing tables with complex formatting. Just test it, it's simple. Note, that it does not support docx files. See for example http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5...ocx-files-unix.

git, hands down. It's so easy to learn, we even got our technical writer using it!

Mercurial

I have mixed feelings here. I use Git the most, but have always found Mercurial to be far better designed and more user friendly. I use both from the CLI. I voted for Mercurial.
