Any help writing VSS Policies...?

Any help writing VSS Policies...?

Hi all,

I've been tasked with writing my companies policies regarding the administration and use of Visual SourceSafe.

Does anyone know of any books, links, and/or documents that might help me get started?

If anyone has any tips regarding this that would be appreciated, also.

Thanks in advance,


RE: Any help writing VSS Policies...?

Essential SourceSafe by Ted Roche is the only one I've seen.
Available at www.hentzenwerke.com.
It presents a good overview.
But how you actually implement SSafe will depend on the needs of your own shop.
We have about 50 developers and perhaps 200 QA, SA and others that access material from SSAFE. A few of our rules:
No multiple checkouts; no integration; separate dbs for code and non-code; backup code db to HD every 4 hrs and to tape every night; run Analyze every weekend.
