If anyone is interested in this concept, there are a couple of places that host Subversion for you so you don't have to be that technically saavy to use it. Basically, you don't need to do any installation with these services since the hosting company does it for you.
You will need to install the the TortoiseSVN product which has a normal Windows Installer and takes about a minute to install.
- I use these guys. Heard about them when checking out the TradeMagic site and noticed a favorable comment (many thanks to Dierk Droth!).
- They do the same thing and also give you a web site.
Using cvsdude.org you can get a free account you can try out indefinitely, it's only limited by a small amount of data that can be uploaded, but for things like Trading Recipes system files, this would be great.
TortoiseSVN is easy to use and seems to work pretty well.
These tools are easier to use than the documentation would indication because many of the feature aren't necessary for most of the benefits but are there to support relatively complicated development efforts.
I highly recommend Subversion, I switched from CVS, and have used Perforce, and Visual Sourcesafe in the past. Subversion is better than any of them from my perspective.
