    Handling file within a team

    I was wondering, what sort of collaboration and cooperation software a team of developers working on a web-based application can use??

    Many thanks..

    first, you should use version control I use SVN, but GIT is gaining momentum in our community. I tried git, but it's still relatively new product so it lacks good GUIs on MAC.


    Second you can use web collaboration tool:
    - project pier (free, can be installed localy)
    - ActiveCollab (paid, can be installed localy)
    - Basecamp

    http://www.activecollab.com/pricing/
    http://www.projectpier.org/
    (PP is free fork of AC)

    And finally, if is needed some kind of bug tracking.

    You can even use something like Assembla.com (free for open source, paid service for commercial projects) which gives you SVN + Trac + Team Collaboration + file hosting

    Unless for legacy reasons, I wouldn't recommend cvs over svn. Svn is superiour in almost every aspect. It's also more or less the de facto standard today.

    I got a VPS, and installed Subversion on it for version control. I also installed Trac for managing projects. I installed the Agilo for Scrum plugin for Trac, to modify Trac to support Scrum.

    I use Eclipse with PDT for PHP, with Subclipse for Subversion. I also use Mylyn for working with tasks in Eclipse and creating contexts for tasks.

    If you want a great all in one package, look at Unfuddle as an alternative to BaseCamp/Trac. I have only great things to say about it.

    I love svn and but I have been unsuccessful in convincing my boss to switch over to using it. There are several people in my office that aren't technically inclined and my boss has a passionate love affair with windows and her salacious software. Everyone in my office with the exception of 3 people use linux and mac everyone, my boss included, is addicted to windows.
