The Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) develops applications for supporting both internal business processes and Department of Defense (DoD) Government Contract Writing and Administration Systems (CWASs) in addition to other DoD eCommerce tools.
The source code for these applications is currently maintained in Concurrent Versions Systems (CVS), or a Gitblit Git distributed revision control system. The CVS and Git systems are supported internally. In addition to application source code, a variety of scripts and configurations files utilized by IT Staff for operational support of DCMA systems is not stored in any revision control system.
The developers and IT Staff vary in knowledge and experience with revision control systems, ranging from understanding and utilizing these systems on a daily basis to being unfamiliar with the concepts of revision control and never using these systems.
