SNAIL

Since I'm beginning to get seriously interested in SNAIL, that is, Slow Networking with Atrocious Interchange Latency, I've done a bit of research as to decentralized replacements for CVS. After a liminary consultation of my pineal gland, here is what I've found, thanks notably to Rick Moene: There is indeed a package based on monotonic logic, appropriately named monotone (doh!). There are also several other promiseful software packages, including the following ones that attracted my attention: Arch, Codeville, DARCS, Meta-CVS. If you anything about these software projects and their rivals, I'm curious about you opinion. Meanwhile, I'll investigate these, and see which is most hackable.
