I like using a decentralized type of SCM tool. SVN and CVS are old

[http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/] which I love. Very easy to
use and very popular among big projects and yet small projects. It
also just turned 1.0
The benefit to decentralized is that you don't have to setup a server
to sync you commits with people. Here is the wiki page for it also
