Well, if you have software projects that you create, regardless of
whether they are apps or libraries, then that is what I am speaking
to.  I need an application that do a certain function for a product
and that leads to a whole slew of completely new software.  This is
the where most of the SCM work that deals on a day to day basis with a
version control system.

If you want to learn more about how companies build embedded software
for projects based on the multitude of elements that make up a root
filesystem, then you might read up on Scratchbox, OpenEmbedded, or

I am speaking to the former, not the latter which falls under the
scope of what I define as more package management to whatever
packaging system you are using.  It involves very little work with
version control.
