Have your developers ever heard of something called "versioning system"? There are several of those which are widely used. The names you will most frequently encounter are git, svn and CVS. Those things can really help with versions, branches and revisions. There are also commercial products which do the same thing, but with a better GUI. Personally, I think that GUI is for wimps, especially when it comes to versioning systems. One should learn the CVS syntax by heart and know how to diff, how to see the revision log, check in a new version, merge 2 branches etc.
