(This is just a message to show you there are also voices other than the
pro-git babble we're seeing lately. This is not a flame/discussion bait.)

I see myself as a application hacker, and I'm a big fan of Bazaar as a DSCM

system they're using. Bazaar is easy, Bazaar is friendly, Bazaar is usable.
