How can I share projects effectively?

How can I share projects effectively?

How can I share projects effectively?

I am responsible for compiling all of our company's software.  Often run into a problem with developers starting new projects and simply 'dragging and dropping' code from one part of SourceSafe to another, which ends up sharing the code.  Then when they change code in their new project it changes the code in the old project where I need to compile from and cause several versioning problems.  Has anyone ever had this problem? and what is the best way to overcome it?

Any suggestions?

RE: How can I share projects effectively?

I don't know about BEST way, but...

We've locked down rights on the existing project to read-only.  In order to add the program to a new project, they'll need to:
1. have you share/branch it, or
2. get latest & add instead of share/branch - although with this method, you lose all the VSS program history.
