What does your multi-developer/multi-designer enviornments look like?

For our current website we are using svn for source control and we each have our own local working copies.  This will work for much of Composite C1, but I am thinking it is going to be too complicated to merge some of the xml data files like the ones used for pages.

Is anyone trying to do anything like this?

Thanks,

Hi Peter

I usually have the following setup:

1) C# projects for dlls - on local machine and under svn

2) Website files (+ sql database) are on shared server. Locally I create a mapped drive and adding a "Website project" to the solution solution that refers to the website on that network drive.

The website is running on server, so usually I'm goin' through server url if I need to change content. As for debuggin' I gues you can just press F5 in Visual Studio or create a site on your local IIS instance which will be referencing to the same files on shared server.

Daily backups of site+database rather than svn

3) Reusable parts I'm wrapping up into packages and keep them under svn.

 

I've used this approach on a few projects, 2-3 devs at the same time and that worked out well.
