SCM

Software Configuration Management, commonly taken to mean "source code management", which is more general than "version control", but is often viewed merely in terms of the latter.

Disambiguation

In "enterprise"- or management-dominated IT circles, it'll be understood as "supply chain management", which is regarded as automatable commercially.

Tips

Separate commits for separate issues is very helpful, folks.
