BitKeeper for Python?

I am going to be working with some people on a project that is going to be
done over the internet. I am looking for a good method of keeping everyone's
code up to date and have everyone be able to access all the code including
all the changes and be able to determine what parts of the code were
changed.

If it were opensource that would be even better.

Hello John,
If you just want a repository for one project and you don't want to
admin the whole server [which is a job in itself], you can use
Sourceforge's CVS server. They'll also let you host the project on
their servers.
If you want to setup your own SCM, you can try Subversion, GNU Arch, or
if you are interested in distributed SCMs, you can try Monotone
http://www.venge.net/monotone/
IMO, you'll be better off using Sourceforge's CVS server.
Regards,
-bg-

You could try Mercurial

http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/

which aims at being a true bk replacement. Its also written in
python. Its being developed at the moment...

Codeville's said to be pretty usable.

Ditto, through the repo format has not been stabilized yet.

The impression I get is that bazaar-ng probably isn't ready for real
use yet:

Warning: bzr is at an early stage of development, and the design
is still changing from week to week. The documents here may be
inconsistent with themselves or with the code, and sometimes refer
to features that are planned but not yet written.

I think I'd give it a while.

Too many choices here. Is anyone planning a PySCMOff blog yet <wink>?

Python, the language that makes reinventing the wheel a little too easy
sometimes.

I kid because I love.

Why stick to Python? There seem to be about a dozen newish SCM's
around at the moment, in at least C, C++, Haskell, Java, Python, Ruby,
Smalltalk (Squeak) (although I think that last one is only for the
Squeak environment). Typical, you wait years for a decent replacement
for CVS, and then...

Hello Bruce,
Typical, you wait years for a decent replacement for CVS, and then...

It's called subversion and it has Python bindings.

Bye.
