It continues to bother me that Linus didn't give credit to Monotone in his git release announcement. Git at its inception was, as I understand it, a clone of a subset of monotone, perhaps with the addition of some tweaks that I haven't understood. That's fine -- it's a wonderful thing to draw ideas from other people and fit them into your needs, and to extend them to work better. It's more wonderful when you give them credit -- that's a useful part of the scientific process, and people should treat it as a moral obligation to do so as well as they can.
