This addresses one issue I was having with git and Subversion: they're  
only 1/3 of the toolset required for collaborative development. git  
was designed with the assumption that you'd be organising projects  
using other mechanisms such as email, forums, phone calls, whatever.  
Subversion was only designed with the goal of "doing CVS better", and  
most people I know who use Subversion also use Trac or some similar  
too to manage tickets and provide some integration with the revision  
control system

I'll be paying some attention to fossil - I'm sure folks like Mikal  
will be wondering "why bother" when they're used to having pervasive  
Internet access, but for my purposes a distributed project environment  
is much more convenient than any 3G offering that I've had experience  
with in Australia.

Thanks for bringing this one up :)
