Create timestamped duplicates of files via AppleScript
Authored by: drudus on Sep 29, '08 08:21:11AM

Bear in mind if you do go down Black's route of SVN that it has limitations. SVN does allow you to move & delete files, but only if you tell it so first. Otherwise you can end up ruining the repository with simple mistakes.
It also litters your directories with hidden .svn folders that need to be left alone.

GIT or Mercurial are some alternatives, but keeping it as simple as possible is always the best way.
