Hi Stef,

Thanks for this review. Because of its portability and simplicity I use 
it for every project I have. Since 2011 I'm writing my thesis as a solo 
"open research" exercise (before it get fashioned ;-) time line at [1]). 
Now I used in conjunction with STON to write all the thesis inside 
pharo, nothing fancy, just put STON grafoscopio trees inside a fossil 
repo a run commit from shell. Still I need to make STON DVCS friendly 
(long strings made fossil to treat it as a binary, but I haven't had the 
time to explore Sven's advice on this. My proposal on "pocket 
infrastructures"[2] tries to put Pharo, Fossil and SQLite as a 
bootstrapable (install pharo and it installs the rest) self contained 
system for interactive writing.


May Jimmie, Hilaire and you have more success into putting Fossil in the 
community radar :-).
