Hy Grant,

Im working on my Development Server, logging each session per File with 
RCS (http://www.gnu.org/software/rcs/rcs.html), and after testing all
gets synced to the Production-Server via UNISON
(http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~bcpierce/unison/). Before Unison i used
rsync to do the job, but Unison is more a real Syncroniser, with
detection of Conflicts, a nice gui and much more..

I forgot to say ,all this on Freebsd and Debian but i think Unison even
runs on Windows.

bye Alex
