Source Control

A message on this list reminded me of a problem we are going to have to rectify soon.

For source control, our developers use Microsoft's Visual Source Safe. So, by default, we are using it too. We have an enormous amount of documentation, and a huge help system. All in all, we're talking about thousands of files that are shared among the four technical writers in my group.

Source safe is really not up to the task, giving us frequent crashes and database corruptions. So, we are looking for another source control system. Our Linux guy is pro-CVS. I hear that Framemaker 7 may have some sort of source control system as well.

Anyone have a recommendation for us? Since the developers are changing, we have the opportunity to change ourselves, including the option of using something totally different than the developers.
