Something I don't understand is that people get scared wih a 'what if BK is removed from us?' question. The answer is: we will go back to CVS (or any other open source tool that has matured enough to replace it). That's all. No loss of productivity compared to what we used to have. The loss of migrating back will, as I understand it, probably be less important than the gain we had using BK during the last months.
So stop complaining. Say thanks to Larry who gives us some help, even if temporary, for free. That's his own contribution do Open Source. And it is a much bigger one than spending time complaining on mailing lists. If you are afraid that this gool tool is to be removed from you, then go and spend as much time as you can using it!
