Darcs

Darcs

Darcs is a free, open source revision control system along the lines of CVS or arch. It is intended to be an advanced system. Darcs has two particularly distinctive features which differ from other revision control systems: Firstly, each copy of the source is a fully functional branch, and secondly, underlying darcs is a consistent and powerful theory of patches.

With Darcs, every user has access to the full command set, removing boundaries between server and client or committer and non-committers.

Darcs is easy to learn and efficient to use because it asks developers questions in response to simple commands, giving the user choices in their work flow. Choose to record one change in a file, while ignoring another. As a developer updates from upstream, (s)he can review each patch name, even the full "diff" for interesting patches.

Darcs is based on a unique algebra of patches. This smartness lets you respond to changing demands in ways that would otherwise not be possible.
