Find here the source for vc-backup.el, a VC backend that uses Emacs backup files for single-file version control.


vc-backup is available from GNU ELPA. It can be installed by invoking

M-x package-install RET vc-backup RET


vc-backup.el enables itself automatically via autoloading. It is recommended to enable version-control so as to have multiple versions of a file accessible. Increasing kept-new-versions makes sure you have more versions to compare.


As vc-backup+.el is distribed as part of GNU ELPA, and therefore requires a copyright assignment to the FSF, for all non-trivial code contributions.
