What I would like to see for at least the favored system: provide a demo
installation that is complete in the sense that immediate switchover
would be possible. I know this is probably far down the road, but I like
to bring it up at this point so that proponents are aware that doing
that might be required.

Of course, proponents of competing systems are encouraged to do the same
thing.

FWIW, I don't consider the current bazaar installation sufficient here.
It does give a useful insight for those of us unfamiliar with that
kind of system, and certainly allows those who want to develop with bzr
already to do so - in the dvcs manner. However, for a complete "demo"
installation, I'd like to see a repository that contains all revisions,
not just selected ones, has post-commit email notifications (or
explains why it can't provide these), etc.

Regards,
Martin

P.S. After we move to the new machine, there should be plenty of disk
space for this kind of experiment.
