A lot of free-software user's guides, I've found, begin with a lengthy justification or statement of philosophy. So I figure why not?
A question I am sometimes asked is "why SourceJammer?" Does the world really need another source control system? Why not stick with Visual Source Safe or CVS?
I'm not going to knock these products, both of which have some excellent features. But VSS costs $$$. And CVS can be cumbersome to install, maintain and administer. I believe there is a niche for SourceJammer—a place for a free, simple, easy to understand and configure source control system for small to medium-sized folders. That's the market I have tried to aim for and I believe that SourceJammer makes for an excellent solution at this level.
Specifically, I think SourceJammer is an excellent source control system for any small development organization, whether as part of a large company, an open-source project, a small startup, or a university or other school coding project. SourceJammer is also ideal for 1-man projects because it is so easy to install and maintain.
In the interest of being honest, I have to admit certain limitations in the current version of SourceJammer (1.2).
Known limitations of SourceJammer:
We have plans to overcome all of these limitations in the not-too-distant future, so stay tuned for future releases.
