VCS with “implicit workflow”

NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions, it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older, it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar. Understand more

Hold ?
Some tools seek to enable and facilitate different ways of working. Unfortunately other tools are created using a different premise, one of low trust in users and the need to enforce a predefined process. ClearCase and TFS do this. This makes version control systems with “implicit workflow” unsuitable tools for modern agile software development. Project methodologies and the best ways of working on a project need to emerge. Tools that enforce high ceremony around things like check in just get in the way and kill productivity.
