Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Bitkeeper experiences?

Posted by Ben Adida on
I asked around at the open-source conference last week, and people had
the following things to say: 1) bitkeeper has this weird license 2)
it's unstable and buggy. They recommend Perforce if you want better
features than CVS. Also, this new project is in the works called
Subversion. It will be fully open-source (unlike Perforce and
Bitkeeper), and SourceForge will be providing it as an alternative to
CVS as soon as it's stable enough. Initial thoughts on Subversion are
that it will be truly awesome, both in terms of features and
architecture. But I don't have any direct experience with it myself, I
just heard good things from people who are qualified to make that call.
