Likelihood to Recommend

Apache Subversion

I'd recommend Subversion for almost any software development effort. It is less appropriate for any project with widely geographically distributed developers. For VERY elaborate projects, a higher end commercial tool might be warranted.

Stash

Stash is good if you can incorporate it into other Atlassian products, and it is certainly acceptable for simple operations, but it is not as good as other products out there such as GitHub or Gitlab. Stash has nothing to truly separate itself from the crowd apart from its integrations with the rest of the suite of Atlassian products.

Pros

  • Version control - it's what it's designed for.
  • Modifiable - It only takes a little bit of knowledge of a scripting language (I used Windows BAT files calling Perl scripts) to extend capabilities, like the aforementioned integration with Redmine.
  • Back end administration- It's a breeze. There's very little work involved in terms of administering it once you've got it installed on a server, and even setting that up isn't bad.

  • Auto merging is one of my favourite features.
  • Deep integration with bamboo.

Based on 2 answers
While there are interesting alternatives, such a GIT, Subversion has been a breath of fresh air compared to its predecessors like CVS or Microsoft Source Safe (now called Team Foundation Server). Its ease of use and high adoption rate is going to keep me using this product for years to come.

Alternatives Considered

I find Perforce to be a little more cumbersome to use than Subversion. And it is NOT free or open source.

Stash was selected before I was at the company, but we're looking at these alternatives and actively considering switching. Stash seems to have all the necessary features we need to make it work, but it doesn't have any bells and whistles or extra special features that we can use to create more advanced integrations with other products like Jenkins or Amazon Web Services.

Return on Investment

  • Time saved in file management
  • No data loss
  • No need to rewrite objects or make backups

  • In positive form, having Stash over not having it at all has provided us with a superior repository system over trying to push to some local server instance and manage branches/merging from our local machines.
  • There are no real negatives to using Stash, its only problem is that there are competitors out there that can offer additional features.
