LXer: Version Control as a Backup Tool

Published at LXer:

It was not intentional, but my later work on OpenSourceToday evolved where I copied up files directly from the version control onto the server. Moreover, I started making quick fixes directly on the version control copy (local) and then loading it onto the server. That cycle, my loading, my testing and my correcting code continued until I had acceptable functionality. Despite my having a poor fit between the site and the version control directory structure, I abandoned old habits. I believe that implies a natural existing advantage, hence, I found myself relying increasingly upon the version control copy.
