I look forward to seeing how these ideas pan out.
I haven't noticed any evidence that Linus, Pasky, or the other git developers had studied the other Free Software alternatives before they launched into git. Except for Linus's original post about having tried monotone and found it too slow.
It's entirely possible that git will advance the state of art, even if only because it is new, small, simple, and has The Linus Factor.
However, I am really curious, if only for historical reasons, what sort of research the git developers have done into the extant alternatives.
