How to manage project versions in Linux ?



  • I am looking for opinions.
    In real world - things fail - operating system fails....
    hardware ( disks ) fails...

    For instance in Linux "grub" goes crazy after some "updates"
    run "update-grub" automatically. .
    System won't even boot same time - various parts fail-
    but most of the time it boots.

    RAID won't mount on boot
    etc etc
    I keep track of my project by copying the entire project folder.
    I have build separate QT programs folder / folders.
    It has been challenge to control "examples" - especially when they are
    different in releases.

    I do not do "Ubuntu backup".

    Does anybody have a different solution ?

    Hi
    Many use an online code revision system as not to lose code if the system fails.
    Like https://bitbucket.org/product

    You don't have to use an online service but if you use it only locally, the safety is lacking.

    Alternatively, you can use a sync service like pcloud and let it store copies of the projects into the cloud.
