"git", which is Linus' home-grown replacement for BitKeeper, quickly attracted
a development community and has grown into a reasonably full-featured
distributed RCS.  It is apparently already stable enough for serious use.
If I was trying to pick an RCS for a large, distributed project, I would at
least investigate it as a possibility.
