Description (last modified by )
Considering 2.0 enhancements it would be great to support monotone http://venge.net/monotone/ SCM system. It grows very fast and was considered by Linus Torvalds to replace BitKeeper, in fact git (a fast written Linus's tool to manage Linux sources w/o any SCM) was desinged based strictly on ideas behind monotone.
Development of a trac plugin for connecting to a monotone repo has been started, see http://www.ipd.uni-karlsruhe.de/~moschny/TracMonotone
This ticket can be used to discuss the additional requirements for the version control layer that would be needed for improving the support for Monotone.
If I remember correctly, this is mainly:
- support for full, normal and shortened revision numbers
- support for multiple branches/repositories (related to #2086)
