Hi all,

I am about to setup a new development team and have
run into the issue of planning for Change Log(ie.
tracking changes to config files, packages, etc.) and
Knowledge Base systems. I'm looking for open source

I setup my current change log system using cvs and
ssh. The directories in cvs are setup in a server ->
application style directory hierarchy. However, I have
only used this setup with under 10 admins.

Is cvs a good tool to use for 20 or so admins who will
control up to 100 servers, or is there a better
program? I have been searching the web for the past
several months, but so far I haven't found a good "out
of the box" solution.

As for Knowledge Bases (KB), I have a similar problem.
There are approx. 40 total developers who will be
gathering, researching, and developing various parts
of Linux and developing apps for Linux. We are looking
for a KB that is useful internally for reference, but
we would also like to easily be able to convert our KB
into a distributable format.

Which open source Knowledge Bases have proven
themselves as useful in a medium sized (40 person)
environment? Again, I've done some research on KB's
but haven't run across one that I found particularly

Thanks in advance,
