For Crystal Reports, I've used Crystal Clear. It's creates an XML
representation of the .rpt. Then you just make sure you keep the .xml in
sync and ideally force .xml with a .rpt in any commit. I think you can get
the designer or one of their tools for free. But it's been a few years since
I've used it.
