... until the collector arrives ...

This "blog" is really just a scratchpad of mine. There is not much of general interest here. Most of the content is scribbled down "live" as I discover things I want to remember. I rarely go back to correct mistakes in older entries. You have been warned :)


Mercurial and SVK Version Control

Mercurial is a new version control system that specializes in distributed development.  Its distinguishing feature is that there is no central repository -- all local repositories are peers (like Gnu arch).  Synchronization occurs through change sets.  It is growing in prominence because the Mozilla 2 team has chosen to use it in favour of CVS.

When reading up on Mercurial, I came across SVK, which is an extension of SVN to support distributed development.
