I've got a lot of "binary media", which I'll abstract away as "MP3s". I've also got several computers that I'd like to have the whole library on - a desktop, media box, a laptop here or there, etc. In short, it would be nice to be able to sync all these machines with each other such that they all have the same stack of files.
A Version Control system, as opposed to an rsync/robocopy lashup, in the rough sense seems like the way to go. First, there are several OSs involved (Windows, Mac, Linux flavors). Second, it would be nice if when ID3 tags and such are updated, the system could just update the file delta, not re-copy the whole file. (Finally, being able to update the library over the internet, rather than the lan, would be very cool.)
But your classic CVS/SVN system has the obvious drawback of needing a full repository to work, and I'd really rather not have two copies of my 60gb+ MP3 folder sitting on a machine somewhere, as well as not traditionally dealing with binary deltas very well.
So, Distributed Version Control starts sounding pretty good at this point. Mercurial, git, and bazaar all look good on paper, but I don't have any experience with any of them. Has anyone tried to set up a "binaries-only" DVCS with any of them? Any recommendations? Pitfalls?
