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

        While that might be true for some. Our policy is to not keep the
repository stale. Most bug fixes/feature adds in our projects don't take
more than a day or 2 to implement. If it's more than that, developers
are encouraged to branch (hooray for cheap copies!). While the trunk of
our projects is supposed to only contain "good" code, branches are given
more latitude. Committing to a branch results in the revision number
getting bumped so the system still works.
        Keep in mind that even though I use the revision number to check
progress, I didn't say that it was the ONLY way I judge progress.
