If anybody has experience with darcs, that one might be worth
to consider. 

>From the homepage at darcs.net:

Darcs is a replacement for CVS. Darcs is simple to learn 
and use, with a powerful new approach to meet the needs of 
today's distributed software projects. Darcs is decentralized, 
based on a "theory of patches" with roots in quantum mechanics.

Written in Haskell, darcs is used on on many operating 
systems including Linux, MacOS X, FreeBSD, and Windows. 
Darcs includes a CGI script to browse your repository from 
the web. 

Version 0.9.3 is already at the recipe store. It needs GHC
to compile, but that is also in the store. To send patches
by mail it needs sendmail, which haven't got a recipe yet,

I have just built a recipe for 1.0.0rc3, which has the
following runtime dependencies on my system:

Curl 7.12.1
Glibc 2.3.2
GPM 1.20.1
Ncurses 5.4
OpenSSL 0.9.7d
Readline 4.3
ZLib 1.2.1
