That's exactly what we're doing now; we couldn't be any happier! I've
read others people arguments about its con, however for a small team of
people and for many small changes it is too much work to have more than
one step ("file save") to have the changes availabe to test on some
webserver.

Every major changes are commited, conflicts, due the small team, are a
non-issue.

thanks evyerone for sharing his idea, sincerly,
