I’ve just posted up an initial revision of my source and configuration management mini-book. I wrote it as a reaction to the questions I get from a lot of students. I aslo wrote it in four hours…so be kind. It’s rough, likely to contain mistakes and has no references currently. It does, however, take a different approach to most howto’s or guides. It goes into more depth on why you might want to use SCM and it give examples using two different SCM tools.
