Example VSS Framework - Source Code Management - Part 1

We asked Chris to put together some information on how he uses VSS, a subject that comes up a lot as we have articles and discussions that involve change management. Change management isn't easy, you definitely need a pattern to work from. This two part article gives you a pattern you can start with and customize to your needs.
