Re: Mac OS X - best setup for small developer?

While it is true that a version number increment is meaningless for
determining how much real work was done on a project, it is definitely
true that NO version number increment definitely means that NO work has
been done. I can see the point from the standpoint of a project manager
that it's nice to know, at a glance, whether a project has been
completely neglected.

It seems that lumping a group of projects into a single repository
makes it more difficult to get this quick 'has anybody touched this'
at-a-glance view for one of the grouped projects.
