No guaranteed, faithful audit trail is given by Google Docs. Logs are lost by Google because of (1) deleterious forced upgrades (2) forced space optimization (3) no downloadable backups preventing loss. Revisions Deleted by Upgrade: Google Docs' last official upgrade did not save, nor migrate, old Revision History to their new version, resulting in total ...


Have you tried Google Docs? They have version tracking and also live editing. The interface is dead simple and it allows for a ton of storage. Also, it will make it ├╝ber easy to share it with other people. It does convert files to Doc, PDF, RTF, and OpenOffice formats for extremely easy attachments and downloads. Another alternative would be to use the new ...


If you want to be able to use the same share link you need to upload your new file as a new revision not a new file. Every time you upload a new file it will generate a new share link. However, if you upload a revision it will keep the same share link every time. To upload a new version of a file using the web interface: Log into your drive and find the ...


Generally, all config data like passwords and database info will be kept in a config file. To keep private data safe, I usually: Create an example config file that is hosted with the project Provide documentation on modifying the example to be the actual config (rename the file, replace variables, etc.) Add the actual config file to .gitignore so that it ...


So here's a crazy hack. If you create a new github account and make a bunch of gists, you can then convert that account into an Organization and the gists stay associated with the new Organization. Big caveat: you won't be able to create any new gists for that Organization. But you can edit existing ones. :-\

So you can set up the following: dev-repo - Only add and allow access to developers audit-repo - Only ...


mediawiki-core is mirrored on GitHub, so that should work for the first part of your question. More generally, I don't know of a service that will automatically show a network graph for any Git repository.


If the owner of repository B decides to delete that repository, users will not be able to successfully clone/checkout/build my repository anymore. If the dependent code "repo B" vanishes: All users will be able to successfully clone your repo. Existing users will probably have a copy of repo B locally and continue building just fine. Cloned repos do ...


I'll stick my neck out (yet!) again and say "No" - based on the deduction that if such existed then most of the many questions asking for a date stamp to be applied when a cell changes would not have been posted. However, that may be a "workaround" for you, ie take one of those scripts and apply it.

According to this Dropbox presentation (slide 12): The software does not use any third-party file sync or version control libraries. Dropbox wouldn't make for a very robust source control system for more than one user - it doesn't handle merging and lacks functions such as diff. You may want to have a look at using something like Git with Dropbox if ...

You can create a new Fork, which essentially does what you want by creating a new jsfiddle from the current revision, though you'll get a new URL. Otherwise I do not believe there's any method to remove any specific revision or to clean up the revision history of a fiddle.
