this doesn't sound so different from several programmers working on the
same source code file, so I suspect that GIT is the best and the most
popular solution for collaborative work on plain text files. 

If you/your fellow workers don't use GIT or another VCS, there is still
dropbox - put your project text files in your dropbox folder and share
them with other, there are automatic backups of older versions by

Or you wait for colorg to be released, that would probably fit your
needs exactly
