Using Subversion With XCode

The MacZealots folks have posted a tutorial: Using Subversion With XCode. Right on.

In the comments for yesterday’s post about Subversion, Kevin Ballard asked why I’m waiting for NetNewsWire and MarsEdit to ship before I make the switch. Excellent question. The answer is simply that when I’m in the last phase of a project I like to be as conservative as I can. The mindset I have when I’m fixing bugs and adding polish is not compatible with making big infrastructure changes. (You ever watch the TV show Monk? This is the Monk phase of the project.)

I’m not saying that’s a rule all developers should follow—just that it works for me.
