Yes I mean the Fossil SCM. I use it as a personal wiki and file repo. It
comes with built-in ticketing system and forum, all wrapped into one
executable file. Fossil also imports/exports Git repos.

I'd use Fossil for small development teams too. Except for game
development and other cases involving multi-GB repos with lots of binary
blobs.

Fossil was designed as a standalone executable. It is difficult to
"library-ify" and the developers have no plan to do so. But it is just a
single executable, supports JSON output for some of its functions, and
can be invoked via OSSubprocess and the like, conceptually similar to
how Iceberg uses libgit2 to do Git stuff.
