Is there a webapp I can use to version-track text? I'm a copyeditor, and I'm forever swapping chapters back and forth with author clients.
My ideal app would be able to check documents in and out, and indicate who's working on what. It'd have to play nice with Word and OpenOffice. I know that Sharepoint would do the job (and then some), but it's too expensive. (I also remember it being slow.)
Everything I find out there seems to be geared for either project management (not what I want to do) or is aimed at coders. I'm looking for something more general-purpose for writers.
