Comment on "Preview of Versions SVN Client"
by Scott Stevenson — Jun 01
@Jens Alfke: This is cool, if you use Subversion. But these days I much prefer Mercurial because it's distributed.

For better or worse, most repositories today are svn or at least compatible with svn. My personal feeling is that basing the app git or Mercurial at this stage probably wouldn't be helpful for the primary audience because they wouldn't see much difference at the UI level and it would limit the selection of repositories.

I think a lot (though not all) of the conveniences you mention are somewhat irrelevant to a Versions user because the tool abstracts you from the details. That said, I'd think Sofa/Pico would be receptive to adapting Versions in the future to other models.
