Software Configuration Management

This specification is deprecated, and largely superseded by Configuration Management.


Software Configuration Management covers a wide range of practices, including tracking and controlling changes in the software using version control, building software and creating baselines, reporting on the contents of such builds and baselines, establishing traceability from requirements and change requests to software revisions, etc.

The goal of this effort is to define a common set of resources, formats and RESTful services to access and manipulate SCM systems.


The group has not attempted to define a complete set of SCM services such as those in IETF 3253 (WebDAV DeltaV) or JSR-147 (WVCM). Rather, we are defining incrementally the services needed to implement specific SCM Use Cases.


This specification is deprecated. See Configuration Management for current work in this general area.


See ScmMeetings for details on meeting logistics, agendas, and minutes.
