Yeah, git is probably nice I guess (using cogito) - haven't had the
opportunity to try it yet.
Btw, yesterday I looked through and upgraded my modules at

These are now up to date which I use:
	acerhk (I needed to access the hw radio switch for my Zepto)
	ghc (Haskell compiler - this one takes forever to build btw)
	darcs (depends on ghc, awesome distributed SCM, includes plugin for
	darcs-darcs (darcs directly from the darcs repo of darcs)
	squeak (the Squeak VM)
	rdiff-backup (neat incremental backup)
		librsync (used by rdiff-backup)
	rsnapshot (neat incremental backup, also rsync based)

And the following I don't use myself but I have for some odd reason
maintained them anyway and they are up to date:
	monotone (I guess a good SCM)
	chicken (a funky scheme that compiles via C)
	bigloo (a fast lisp compiler)
	retroforth (a tiny but pretty cool forth)
	gst (GNU Smalltalk)
	slate (a stalled Smalltalkish language)
I am also in the process of upgrading io and idst. I will probably
remove jdk and cvs2darcs-darcs.

On the subject of distributed SCMs, I have tried tracking available
tools for quite some time and always seem to find my way to Darcs but
today I found this blog entry:

...and who knows, given that it is probably time to try out especially
Cogito and Mercurial. And possibly Bazaar-NG.

PS. Still no interest in setting up something like  for Lunar?
