    Question Free Version control

    Hello,

    I will start doing a team project soon, I don't know what good VC software there is. I want something free, with closed source as an option. A did a quick search for some, got no clue which is bad or good, nor what to look for. Please do explain to me what I should look for when getting VC apps too.

    Thanks.

    Do you have your own host server? Or are you looking for a hosting server (like sourceforge)?

    If you have your own server you can install any version control software you want and use it for closed-source projects.

    If you're looking for a host, all the servers I know of only provide free hosting for open-source projects (google code, source forge, github).

    The only server I know of that provides free limited private repo hosting is bitbucket. They provide an unlimited number of private repositories and infinite storage space, but only 5 members can access private repos for free. Paid service increases the number of users that can access private repos.

    Github also has a paid private repo option while google code hosting and source forge only allow open source projects.

    There are a variety of other servers around for closed-source hosting, but I don't know anything about them.

    No server, was wanting a private code hosting, but found nothing, so I'm using Teamserver(Java.net), a Netbeans plugin.

    Ah, that's right, I wouldn't expect to many questions in the off topic section either.

    Update: I got svn installed not to figure out how to use subclipse.

    I use bitbucket and git, a powerful and easy to use combo. It's social coding with free online public and private repositories. Don't really know how I worked without it, especially when coding at home and at uni.
