We are currently trying to implement a good version control system for our company with 3 Magento web-stores.
These websites will be kept in three separate repositories on local server.
We were previously using Mercurial with the Tortoisehg application, however we found that it was far too slow for our needs.
So I have recently decided to switch to GIT with the GITKraken application. However it is so slow I am struggling to even set it up.
The size of each web-store is around 65,000 files, could that be a problem?
1) What is the best way to Version Control a Magento application?
2) Whats the maximum files you would recommend in one repository, we don't want to be having one application over a number of Repos.
Our workstations has a high end i7 and 16GB RAM and our computers are connected to our local server with 1gbps ethernet so I do not think that our hardware is the issue here.
I found this thread Version control for Magento but that didn't really help me solve the issue of really slow version control application.
