At Resolver Systems, we practice Agile techniques such as Continuous Integration, Pair Programming, Iterations and more.
One fundamental rule of Agile Programming is that There should never be a broken trunk. This means that before checking in we must make sure that every test passes. This makes checking in a very expensive operation: 4 hours for a full test run in a single machine. In the meantime, you go on working on that tree, making things very difficult to keep track of, without some form of version control.
In this post I will investigate various Version Control Systems that can be run locally: Most of them are distributed, but I don't really care about it - I don't want to replace Subversion (yet). I just want to be able to check in every hour and have a local version history, before checking in to the central Subversion repository.
