Have you ever heard of The Joel Test? If not, go read it now.

Okay, welcome back!
What I’m curious about here is how well the U2 (even the wider MV) community fairs along these lines. Support for source control is a bit behind and from talking with people in some other U2 shops, the pervasion of real modern tools isn’t too crash hot. I’d be really surprised if any of us get greater than 9 but equally surprised if we were below 4 for anyone with more than 4 developers.
So let’s hear it. Give your honest answer (don’t sugar coat it!).
Although your answer will be anonymous (feel free to elaborate your scores in a comment however!), I’ll kick it off by giving the results as I see it for where I am now.
We scored 5 out of 12. Not completely horrible, but not ideal either. I’ll post the blow-by-blow break down in the comment section for those that are interested.
So, how does your establishment fare?
