Monotone

Monotone

Monotone is a free, distributed version control system. It provides fully disconnected operation, manages complete tree versions, keeps its state in a local transactional database, supports overlapping branches and extensible metadata, uses an efficient peer-to-peer network protocol, performs history-sensitive merging, and delegates trust functions to client-side RSA certificates.

Monotone is especially strong in its support of a diverge/merge workflow, which it achieves in part by always allowing commit before merge.

Revisions are exchanged using the custom netsync protocol which shares some conceptual ground with rsync and cvsup.

The software automates many tedious and error-prone tasks in group software development:

  • Store multiple versions of files you are working on efficiently
  • Transmit changes to files between you and your colleagues
  • Merge changes you make with those your colleagues make
  • Make notes about your opinion of the quality of versions of files
  • Make decisions about using or ignoring versions, depending on the notes you receive from others
