changetrack is a program to monitor changes to files. If files are modified one day, and the machine starts working incorrectly some days later, changetrack can provide information on which files were modified, and help locate the problem. Changetrack will also allow recovery of the files from any stage.
The Revision Control System (RCS) manages multiple revisions of files. RCS automates the storing, retrieval, logging, identification, and merging of revisions. RCS is useful for text that is revised frequently, for example programs, documentation, graphics, papers, and form letters.
Chora is built upon the Horde Application Framework and provides a read-only browser interface to any number of version control repositories. Advanced features include a visual branch view of the repository's history, pretty-printed output, annotation, patchsets and basic statistics.
ded, the directory editor, allows you to navigate multiple file lists or a directory tree, viewing or changing file attributes rapidly. In addition to conventional file information, it operates on files' RCS or SCCS archives, making it useful for source control as well as system administration. It is curses-based.
OpenGrok is a fast and usable source code search and cross reference engine. It helps you search, cross-reference, and navigate your source tree. It can understand various program file formats and version control histories like Mercurial, Bazaar, Git, ClearCase, Perforce, SCCS, RCS, CVS, or Subversion. In other words, it lets you grok (profoundly understand) the source.
cvs-fast-export analyzes a collection of RCS files in a CVS repository (or outside of one) and, when possible, emits an equivalent history in the form of a fast-import stream. Not all possible histories can be rendered this way, and the program tries to emit useful warnings when it can't. The program can also produce a visualization of the resulting commit DAG in the DOT format handled by the graphviz suite.
eacc is a bash script that allows a group of people to share an encrypted, revision controlled file on a shared filesystem. Rather than store an encrypted file in RCS, eacc encrypts the RCS file and handles the decryption, check-out, check-in, and encryption steps automatically. The repository is encrypted using GPG's multi-recipient support, which allows each member of the group to use their own unique password. A typical use case would be to securely store sensitive information, such as password lists or account information, that is shared by a team.
