Hi,

Could anybody who have used both give their input please? I am very curious to know. We are going to start using Accurev soon

Thanks

It is a workflow tool and has more features than CVS/SVN

I first heard about it in your post; it isn't in widespread use.
The website says it is intended to be a replacement for Rational ClearCase. Almost everyone I know that has used ClearCase has bad things to say about it. Some are product specific. And some are a workflow tool injecting itself into how you do source control.

I have worked with accurev and faced a lot of issues. The workflow idea is great, but there were some problems with the sync. Why not GIT? you can build a workflow too.
