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.


Paulo

Can someone put forth a strong argument as to why monotone provides better functionality than the existing 4 choices? Otherwise I think we have done our due diligence by providing freedom to projects *choose* a SCM from the supported list which includes most of the currently widely used SCMs.

Having too many choices isn't always a good thing. One of many links I found on google: http://www.apa.org/monitor/jun04/toomany.html
