List of SCM tools.

SCM tools can be broadly classified into two ways. They are

1. Distribute Model
2. Client-server model.

Distributed Model:

In this model each developer has their own local repository, and changes are shared between repositories as a separate step.

Some of the tools used for this model are,
Open Source:

* GNU arch – the original.
* ArX – started as a fork of GNU arch, but has been completely rewritten.
* Monotone – fully-decentralized in a P2P way.
* Git – Designed by Linus Torvalds to address the needs of the Linux kernel project
* Bazaar – written in Python. Decentralised, and aims to be fast and easy to use. Can losslessly import Arch archives.
* Mercurial – written in Python. Decentralised and aims to be fast, lightweight, portable, and easy to use.
* Codeville – written in Python, uses an innovative merging algorithm.
* Darcs – written in the Haskell language, can keep track of inter-patch dependencies and automatically rearrange and “cherry-pick” them using a “theory of patches”.
* SVK – written in Perl, built on top of Subversion to allow distributed commits.
* Aegis – mature software (but file system-oriented, poor network support)
* DCVS, a decentralized CVS-based version control system for distributed software development.
* LibreSource – a real virtual office allowing geographically spread teams to work simultaneously on a common project. LibreSource offers advanced functionality for configuration management with its generic synchronization module So6, resulting from INRIA research works. The creation of development chains, validation processes and quality control processes can be done through the interconnection of synchronizers.
* ARCS – Automated Revision Control System. A front-end to GIT, CVS, Subversion and Darcs. Allowing real-time file-system monitoring, with the aim of simplification of the revision control process.
* tcldbrcs – Database driven RCS on PostgreSQL, no specific server outside of postgres

Proprietary

* BitKeeper (was used in Linux kernel development 2002 – April 2005)
* Code Co-op – A peer-to-peer version control system (can use e-mail for synchronization)
* TeamWare Designed by Larry McVoy, creator of BitKeeper
* Wandisco multi-site – replication for CVS and Subversion

Client-server Model:

In this model developers use a single shared repository.

Some of the tools used for this model are,

Open source

* Concurrent Versions System (CVS) – originally built on the Revision Control System.
* CVSNT – A cross-platform port of CVS that allows case insensitive file names among other changes.
* OpenCVS – Compatible with CVS, with emphasis put on security and source code correctness.
* Subversion – an open source version control tool started in 2000 to be “a compelling replacement for CVS”[1].
* Vesta – a build system with a versioning file system and support for distributed repositories. Used at Intel for microprocessor design.
