May 13, 2009
Today, the Software Freedom Conservancy welcome the Darcs project as its newest member. Darcs joins 15 other Conservancy members, who receive the benefit of aggregated non-profit status available to all Conservancy member projects.
Darcs is a distributed revision control system written in Haskell. In Darcs, every copy of your source code is a full repository, which allows for full operation in a disconnected environment, and also allows anyone with read access to a Darcs repository to easily create their own branch and modify it with the full power of Darcs' revision control. Darcs is based on an underlying theory of patches, which allows for safe reordering and merging of patches even in complex scenarios. For all its power, Darcs remains a very easy to use tool for every day use because it follows the principle of keeping simple things simple. Darcs is free software licensed under the GNU GPL.
