Programmers Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional programmers interested in conceptual questions about software development. It's 100% free, no registration required.

We use sourcesafe to keep all of our code up to date in what we do in our office, but it's getting to the point where we need to write a few notes and attach different versions of our code for different things (mainly webapps, asp.net)

Is there a wiki out there designed for this? Ive looked at Trac but i'm not sure it's best for the job. We really just need somewhere where we can login and see okay x did a release to our main server on y with z changes. We could make one but don't really have the time at the moment.

Any suggestions?

Thanks a lot,

Redmine is a good place to start. It will give you probably more than you need at the moment but is a really good (read: simple) tool to manage projects. It has an in-built wiki that can be linked to bugs/features/tasks/releases/etc...

It can also integrate with version control (I know it can work with SVN, not sure about sourcesafe) –  CamelBlues Oct 19 '11 at 17:57

We use Atlassian Confluence and I just recently implemented a similar thing using a custom Perl script and Confluence CLI. The script grabs setup information (app version, DB used, deployment date) for various web app instances deployed on the specific server and updates the related Wiki page. It is scheduled to run hourly on our dev servers.

This seems to work fine for us, but I would also be interested to hear if there is a better, simpler solution for such tasks.
