Before I pose my question, I am not intending to start a flame-war of
any sort -- I'm just searching for "different" ways of doing things.
With so many different version control systems available (aside from
the traditional "keep current backups" solution), I am curious:
Q: What is *your* favorite/suggestion solution to keep (working)
versions of configuration files, in case something goes awry?
I am specifically targeting configuration files because they are what
I change the most, in avoidance of "It worked 10 minutes ago..."
For local configuration files there's a tool called rcs that can be used
for tracking changes and rollback.
It's a part of the FreeBSD base system. Check the man pages for rcs(1)
ci(1) co(1) rcsdiff(1) and rcsintro(1) - rcsintro(1) is probably where
you want to start.
It's also available on other *nix systems like AIX, Red Hat, Solaris etc.
