Re: Request for monotone



I tend to agree with stahnma. Currently we already offer the most common SCMs, and from what i can see no one has really good knowledge with monotone, which may be a problem regarding some future troubleshooting/administration/whatever.
If we still think that monotone, would be a good addition though, we could always send some emails and see what would be the acceptance of it and the number of projects to be created.

For now i would say no to monotone, since we don't have the in-house expertise, and any relevant data on how many projects  would be actually using it.

I tend to think if you can't use one of the vc systems already
provided, you need specialty hosting and with that, probably a lot of
care and feeding.  We are already offering the most common SCMs in use
(except CVS ^^ see above).  Always saying 'yes' and allowing new
things to pop up is not maintainable in the long term.  I am actually
surprised we offer as many SCMs as we do.
