guys,

bazaar, with git, are much much better than old but popular versioing systems CVS and Subversion.

"bzr status" command (to see differences on your working dir) is simply lighting fast! doesnt matter how big your branch is!

its mainly used my Launchpad.net, the lair of another great open source project (K)Ubuntu.

Unfortunately, ohloh still doesnt work on bazaar branches.

regards,

massa

Bazaar supports distributed repositories as well as binding a working copy to a central repository. This allows for a centralized development style known from subversion or CVS in addition to the modern distributed style. It also provides an easy entry for beginners.

Plugins allow the branching of and committing to other VCSs' branches. (This way bazaar can replace svk.)

BZR is not only a great distributed VCS, but a centralized one as well. Offline working, easy branching and merging, and the ability to setup the same workflow as with CVS and SVN (centralized server) is great. You can slowly adjust to the distributed features by breaking out of the centralized mode only when needed.

Other great features I've enjoyed since switching from CVS/SVN:

* True rename/move of files: you can move and edit a file and (1) it will still merge and (2) version history travels with the file.

* Awesome plugins:
* bzrtools gives you the ability to shelve changes and bring them back later.
* bzr upload lets you push just the changes you've made to an ftp server (useful for cheap hosting where you might not have SSH access).
* lots more!

Bazaar never gets in the way

I have been using bazaar for over a year now on my personal projects (over 10K lines of code) and it has been a pleasure all the way.
We have been using it now on our project at work for a few months and there have been no issues with adoption. We are using it in a centralised way to make everyone comfortable with it i.e. a better subversion.

Centralised or distributed whichever way I've wanted to use it bazaar has supported it. The eclipse plugin is pretty good - not quite as fancy as some other VCS plugins though.

The shared repository concept that bazaar has is really good. It saves us a lot of time when creating local branches as it does not have to pull down revisions that it already has. It is quite a simple concept which seems odd when you first encounter it but is a massive time saver in the long run.

Bazaar is powerful and easy to use.
We don't need to measure operations speed in ms while it saves a LOT of time on merges! The merge is really smart.
