Subversion Team Posts Open Letter To Developers

The Subversion team has posted an open letter to open source developers asking them to “stop bugging Linus Torvalds About Subversion”.

This letter comes out on the heels of Linus’ decision to stop using BitKeeper due to Bitmover, Inc’s decision to stop providing a free version of Bitkeeper for open source development.

There is a pretty detailed article on KernelTrap explaining the decision on BitMovers part.

Apparently, Linus is thinking about using a tool called Monotone which, quite frankly, looks pretty interesting.
