infoworld caught on that other open-source projects are facing a decision about bitkeeper besides the linux kernel. while the article mentions we’re looking at subversion as an alternative for mysql server development, i don’t imagine that will be our long-term solution. distributed version control is just too nice. but our gui team has been using subversion for their projects for quite a while, and we are using it in many other places.

mercurial is another new distributed version control system that looks promising. i may give it a try with my personal projects.
