In my humble opinion, Bitkeeper does not have a snowball's chance in 
hell of getting established on sources.redhat.com.

Just read the license.

   http://www.taniwha.org/bitkeeper.html

"Sometimes it is tempting to sacrifice our rights and freedoms for 
convinience, but we should not do so... with the increasing popularity 
of alternative licenses, it is important [to] determine whether they 
preserve the minimum acceptable amount of freedom and be responsible 
about choosing software that that meets these minimum criteria and 
advances our goals as a community"

This is 3 years old, however there has been no improvement, quite the 
contrary.

Daniel
