Version control WITHOUT local workspaces

Version control WITHOUT local workspaces

Version control WITHOUT local workspaces

I am managing a rather complex website that uses Perl and many configuration files in addition to content that lives in XML files.

We currently use Perforce, and am now investigating other tools like CVS, however it seems to have the same issue we're stuggling on with Perforce.

I would like to distribute content development (XML file updates) among several resources, however this involves each contributor to have a complex local environment setup including a Perl installation.

Is it possible to have version control and merging DIRECTLY ON THE DEVELOPMENT SERVER?  I'd like to eliminate the need for local environments on everyone's PCs.

Any tool/process suggestions would be most appreciated!
