The vc bundle
-----------------------------------
This is a script based approach to version control for TeX
documents.  It works more reliably than keyword substitution
based approaches, since it tracks all files in a working
copy, not only .tex files.

The vc bundle works with LaTeX and plain TeX.  Currently,
Bazaar, Git and Subversion are supported.


What's special about the vc bundle?
-----------------------------------
* Common version control packages for LaTeX use keyword
  substitution to access revision information.  That
  approach doesn't work reliably in the presence of
  non-.tex files, e.g., graphics or graphic sources that
  are processed by an external tool.
* The author is unaware of any alternative version control
  packages for plain TeX.
* The author is unaware of any alternative LaTeX version
  control packages that support Bazaar or Git.


Getting the software
-----------------------------------
The latest version of the vc bundle can be found at

vc – The vc (ver­sion con­trol) bun­dle

This is a script based ap­proach to ver­sion con­trol for TeX doc­u­ments. It works more re­li­ably than do key­word-sub­sti­tu­tion-based ap­proaches, since it tracks more than just .tex files; it can work on all files in a work­ing copy.

The vc bun­dle macros work with LaTeX and plain TeX. Cur­rently, Bazaar-, Git- and Sub­ver­sion-based repos­i­to­ries are sup­ported; scripts are pro­vided for use with both Unix and Win­dows.
