"Coders of the world rejoice, for Martin Pool is building a distributed revision control system:
I am not working directly on Ubuntu, but rather on improving the tools used by open source developers inside and outside of Canonical. The charter is to build a distributed version-control system that open-source hackers will love to use.
Knowing Martin, this will have the usability of Subversion and Darcs, the algorithms of Arch, and the pure leetness of rsync. Beware, other RCS authors: your days are numbered!"
