Monotone distributed version control

Thursday 4 September 2003

Here’s another take on the problem of version control: Monotone has a different perspective than most systems: there’s no central repository, it’s all distributed across the developers’ trees; and there are no revision numbers, SHA1 fingerprints identify revisions. It feels like a P2P system rather than a client/server system.

It doesn’t look like they’re building for Windows, but it doesn’t look like there’s a reason they can’t.

A similar concept and well worth a look is Arch.
