Interesting how Sun have also come to the same conclusion as I have with respect to Distributed SCMs. Only bazaar, git and mercurial matter.
Also interesting is that for immediate targets they also recommend Subversion. Maybe I've been channeling Bill Joy or something? Anyway, earlier I couldn't decide which of the three to use.
Now I know that git is the way forward. The (multiple) interfaces help enourmously (cogito, git, StGit, P(atchy)g, etc.). It means if you have some funky interface, you can migrate slowly by reimplementing what you use with git plumbing.
Just as Carl Worth talks about reimplementing Hg using git. Another major factor is the culture on the mailing list(s). List culture encourages/discourages other participants. And the git list culture encourages lots of people to share very small changes.
Which has meant that git has caught up very quickly and eclipsed everything out there. It really is odd reading that email and seeing just how far git has come.
Anyway it looks like what Sun are considering doing is that they might reimplement the interface of their internal tool (teamware) on top of git. If they can make that available, it'll advance things for everyone (again).
