No VCS includes timestamp as metadata, even some do include permission bits. I think it's because when VCS tracks file contents, the last-modified time is not coherent. E.g. when someone modify a file, then undo, the last-modified time changes, but that file should keep the same version. BTW, Subversion has an option use-commit-times to use commit time as ...

"Develop web applications," "pick a language"... that's programmer talk. You want source control, not a web app: look into git or Subversion. There's a learning curve if you've never used an SCM, but it's a rite of passage for any web dev, just like the moment when you realize someone overwrote 2000+ lines of your code that you just started overwriting as ...

I expect you will have to modify your code since CGIs are meant to run within a web environment. Here are a few links: ...

The example conversation you provided sounds an awful lot like the conversations I hear on a regular basis. In my context (IT), deploy scripts are typically actual scripts (BASH or ant targets) that push code from source code control to a non-development tier. However, sometimes management will characterize "all the steps" that it takes to move from ...

Not sure if this would be what you're looking for as it's a hosted solution, but it's one option you can lean towards if you don't feel like developing a custom panel. The site is called Assembla and it features free hosting (along with paid hosting). Downside to the free hosting is that you have to have an open-source project. As for a self-hosted ...
