One reason I really like the distributed version control systems is because it really reduces the need for Linden Lab to be in the business of giving people their own sandboxes.  Many of the newer systems are very easy to host, and merging from multiple repositories is much easier. -- [[User:Rob Linden|Rob Linden]] 07:25, 8 January 2007 (PST)

Darcs is something you may want to investigate. I've used it for other projects, and it was simple and effective enough that the less technical folks have actually started using it for their own projects, it is so simple and effective. A possible con would be that it IS written in Haskell.. but that's not that problematic. --[[User:Ky Aska|Ky Aska]] 15:59, 8 January 2007 (PST)

  • Adam Zaius 06:38, 8 January 2007 (PST) votes for SVN
    • Directory structure something like:
      • /trunk -- Only editable by Linden Lab
      • /branches/users/<username>/ -- unlimited permissions by owner/creator for third-party source

Do we want to integrate the VCS with the Second Life authentication? Pluggability of authentication scheme seems like an important axis to consider. --Which Linden 09:27, 8 January 2007 (PST)
