There is, I highly recommend the usage of Git, although this isn't the only VCS out there it's brilliant!

You can setup a shared repository you and your colleagues can push and pull from, use BitBucket or GitHub. Work on the theme locally, then push to the repository to merge the changes

Checkout http://teamtreehouse.com/library/git-basics to learn how to do it.

Hi Sam, thank you very much for responding.

You are sure that BitBucket or Github can be used for WordPress? I can push and pull from repositories for WordPress? I know it being useful for Rails...

You can share and collaborate code with any language on GitHub and BitBucket, just create your .git and share your project.

Collaborators can clone the project to their machine, modify code, run tests locally on something like MAMP before pushing back to the central repository.

Is that what you are looking for?
