Re: [xml-dev] XML/XSL Revision Control/ Source Code Versioning:Ideas, Methods, Tools for Specific scenario as a Content Writer?

cvs, svn, git, mercurial, rtc etc all merge xml files fine, just as
they merge any other code.  There's nothing special about xml.

Usually I'd recommend svn to start with unless you really need the
abilities that git/hg/rtc provide (applying or removing whole change
sets) - do you want to spend your time understanding the difference
between a pull and rebase?  Or why you can't push because of unstaged
files?  but... maybe it's easier to understand a dvcs if you dont
already know cvs/svn.  If you learn svn, a lot of that knowledge will
hinder learning a dvcs.
