File collaboration

I would like to start collaborating on some very simple ruby programs
with a couple of friends. Rather than emailing rb files back and forth,
it would be great if there was a way to do something like Google Docs
sharing. Does anyone know of a way to do this. Maybe something simpler
than using svn or git?

We want to build on each other’s work without having to email and create
multiple copies. Ideas?

Try darcs or bzr. Distributed collaboration without the artificial
complication of either SVN or Git.

I hear Mercurial is pretty simple too.

The FireFox browser has a plugin called GSpace that allows you to use
a Google mail account like a file storage device. If you setup a Gmail
account for your project, and setup a file structure, your team can
use GSpace to work from the Gmail account like a shared file system.
You could even setup working areas for each team member.

Thank you. I will take a look.
