The Quick Guide to VOODOO!
VOODOO (Versions Of Outdated Documents Organized Orthogonally) is a
stand-alone version control tool, with a neat graphical user interface. It
offers simple and clear access for managing projects in which files evolve
in numerous versions. The tool manages not only variants and revisions of
single files, but of whole software projects (multiple files, multiple
users, multiple variants, access rights, project structure, project
VOODOO differs from previous source code control systems in its orthogonal
approach to version management. This means that for every component of a
project hierarchy, you can not only store its revision history, but also
different variants of the same component. The orthogonal organization of
revisions and variants leads to a much clearer arrangement than in other
tools which use trees for organizing variants and revisions.
VOODOO uses delta storage for storing different versions, which can yield
savings of about 95% (up to 99%). It is not restricted to text files but
also handles files of arbitrary type (desktop publishing documents,
databases, libraries, applications, etc.)
VOODOO is suitable for projects of any size, from small (an individual
author) to large (many developers). A flexible locking mechanism ensures
data integrity when several users work on the same project.
