Aegis is a transaction-based software management system. It provides a framework within which developers work on changes independently, and coordinates integrating those changes back into the master source code. The program supports geographically distributed development. Aegis supports distributed and multiple repositories, change sets, multiple lines of development, multiple simultaneous active branches, and branching to any depth. It enforces a development process which requires that change sets "work" (they must build successfuly and optionally include and pass tests) before being integrated into the project baseline. It also ensures that code reviews have been performed. The program also supports long transactions, which allows appropriately created changes to be treated as if they were projects and therefore to have changes made to them. This allows a hierarchy of changes within changes, to any depth. Each project is a separate repository, with separately configurable policies.
