[OS X TeX] OT: But what suggestions do TeXShop users have for collaborative writing

   Sorry for the OT post, but I was asked today, so I thought I would  
seek further input from other TeXShop users.  When I write with  
multiple authors who also use LaTeX, we simply swap the .tex files  
back and forth, handling all changes and suggestions with in-line  
comments (i.e., nothing is ever deleted, just commented out).  That  
seems to work well.  For non-tex co-authors, I send compiled pdfs  
with in-line \marginpar{} for comments and suggestions, but, of  
course, their comments in return are just usually emailed text.  I  
suppose CVS would work as well, but seems like overkill.  Any other  
suggestions, especially something more TeX-like?

Please avoid sending me Word or PowerPoint attachments.
