This is good to hear ....

I am pro-git, because well you have to pick an SCM to talk about and I 
do think that the collaboration tools for open source projects on github 
are superior to anything else...

Git other than that I am glad that folks are finding that FileTree is 
working for other disk-based SCMs --- because that really is the point 
of FileTree:)

It should also be possible to copy packages back and forth between a 
git-managed FileTree repository and a Fossil-managed Filetree repositor...
