Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Can we move this question to Programmers.Stackexchange? I still think it is a relevant question that is useful to many budding programmers. A few people even seem to agree with me!

Flagging the post might have been a better choice over posting the request here... – Lix May 2 '12 at 14:16
@Lix: Thanks for point out flagging. I was not aware of that option. – haziz May 2 '12 at 14:21
ChrisF is a ♦mod over on PSE... I think you should take his advice... – Lix May 2 '12 at 14:24


There are already several questions along the same lines on the site. Including, but not limited to:

Version control for independent developers?

Which version control system a .net / vb6 developer in a small team should use?

version control for small team

One of these (or a related question) will probably have the same information in it.

If you can't find a question that covers the same areas as yours then we can look at migrating it, but I'd be surprised if you don't find one.

Not really. If you read my question and the referenced questions closely, my question is different. You will notice that I am asking about version control strategies and policy, rather than whether to use it or what to use. I am asking how effective programmers use it? What is their strategy? – haziz May 2 '12 at 15:19
@haziz - these were the first questions I found on a quick search. If you do a more intensive search you might find something more relevant. – ChrisF May 2 '12 at 15:23
