Maybe you want to have a look at the GIT version management system, too?
It was created by the linux community some years ago and is actively
maintained and used by a lot of people.
The learning curve is a bit steep in the beginnging, but I think it's
a really professional tool for distributed development: http://git-scm.com/
There are interfaces to cvs, svn and some other RCS/VMS and it's cross-platform.
And... of course, it's OpenSource.
