How well do they support the process of game-development? What are the issues using VCS, with regard to non-text files (binary files), large projects, et cetera? What are solutions to these problems, if any?
For organization of answers, let’s try on a per-package basis. Update each package/answer with your results.
Also, please list some brief details in your answer, about whether your VCS is free or commercial, distributed versus centralized, etc.
Update: Found a nice article comparing two of the VCS below – apparently, Git is MacGyver and Mercurial is Bond. Well, I’m glad that’s settled… And the author has a nice quote at the end:
It’s OK to proselytize to those who
have not switched to a distributed VCS
yet, but trying to convert a Git user
to Mercurial (or vice-versa) is a
waste of everyone’s time and energy.
Especially since Git and Mercurial’s real enemy is Subversion. Dang, it’s a code-eat-code world out there in FOSS-land…
