After having received tacit approval from the Board to implement
infrastructure for libspatialindex, I would like to explore what
variant of distributed version control system SAC would like to
support. Because it is such a low-key project, I think a DVCS would
be a good fit for libspatialindex. There's no committee, a couple of
rather inactive main contributors, and frequent one-off patches that
tend to show up to fix this or that or add new features here and there.
I think that the DVCS we choose must support Trac. I don't wish at
all to revisit our bug tracking software. My investigation shows both
Mercurial and git Trac plugins support our existing (0.10.3.1) version
of Trac. Versions of these plugins also exist to support newer
versions of Trac (0.11+), so we will have some upgrade room.
Are there any other contenders besides hg and git?
For the sociological/project aspects, the Python community has a great
document describing DVCS workflow and their decisions and choices. <http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0374/
As with subversion, I'm willing to be the point guy on this, but I
want us to only provide one. For folks with experience with DVCS's,
which fits with how OSGeo operates, and which should we advertise to
our member projects (or project wards like libspatialindex) as
