Store data under version control software
Authored by: thrig on Oct 03, '05 11:00:50AM

Valuable files should be stored under version control, such as CVS or Subversion. This protects against any manner of accidents by keeping the working files in a sandbox directory. That is, a delete in the sandbox will only affect uncommited changes in that sandbox; the previous versions can be checked out again with a simple 'cvs update' or similar command. Version control also keeps a history of changes with logs, (usually) scales to multiple developers, and more!

My rm points to srm by default, with the horrid interactive option disabled by default.
