PACKAGE DESCRIPTION
===================

Home page: http://freshmeat.net/projects/bzr/
License  : GPL

Next-generation distributed version control similar to GNU Arch.

Distributed version control system that is powerful, friendly, and
scalable implemented in Python.

- Just one .bzr directory at the top of the tree; it doesn't clutter
  the tree or get in your face. No wierd ++file--names--0.
- The user interface is simple and familiar to people with experience
  from CVS or Subversion: add, mv, diff, status, commit, log, merge, etc
  all do what you would expect.
- Offers a choice between centralized and decentralized work within a
  single project: when in the office, you can work on a shared central
  branch. For experimental changes or offline work you can make a branch
  on your laptop and merge back in later.
- Preserves history; any previous revision can be recreated. History
  can be GPG-signed to protect against man-in-the-middle attacks, bad
  mirrors, server intrusion or data corruption.
