I am doing some research for my company on how best to do version
control with RPG, CL, and DDS. I am not an IBM i programmer as my
expertise is in PHP and ZF2 (which I am currently doing on the i). I
have been using GitHub and love how it works. What is the most
similar type of service for RPG? Can I use GitHub? Is there something
similar that is much easier to setup?

GIT, SVN, & CVS are fine for source control ... but change control on IBM i is a lot more than just source code.

Object attributes retention, selective recompile, PF/LF/Module/Program relationships, data retention, and the integrity of production applications all should be considered.

Most major ALM solutions for IBM i (such as PTC Implementer) will provide proper change control for native objects, as well as IFS files.

Feel free to contact me privately if you would like information on Implementer.
