Don't forget ArX

That page is a great resource. Thanks for creating and maintaining it.

I'm glad to see that ArX is mentioned briefly, but I'm still slightly puzzled about why ArX gets so little attention. It solves many of the same GNU arch problems as Bazaar-NG, but is much more mature.

I'm not in a position to judge whether or not ArX is capable of handling the kernel tree at this point. But it may be at least as close as monotone or darcs.

[Disclaimers: I have played around with ArX some but have not yet had a chance to use it heavily. Based on quite a bit of research and experimentation, I like ArX better than the alternatives. So I am helping the ArX project by maintaining the web page shown above, and doing a little evangelizing.]

Good review, but unless you are a time traveler your revision date is a bit off. :)

My clock says Apr 8 2005. Well maybe Sat Apr 9 GMT 2005 but still not the 10th.
