like it or not, it seems there are only 3 reasonable options at the moment:

1. svn (i hate cvs). BK also provides a tool to convert bk repo to cvs repo.

2. git

3. mercurial (while this is promissing and written in python, which
many people here can hack it if needed, unfortunately mercurial is the
most immatured tool compared to the above two)

anyway we must choose one. i vote for svn (do we usually fork the
repo? i guess not). mercurial is the second choice to me.
