we dont. having a decent VCS now is infinitly more valuable than spending 2 years discussing the perfect repo layout. also, switching to a decentralised VCS may/will spawn modes of operation that we dont even know about yet, possibly making the so thoughtful established repo layout changes obsolete faster than the time it took to come up with them. i am not opposed to the idea of layout changes; its just not my personal itch (right now). and quite frankly - i dont see anybody else here, whose itch it is... our current VCS is inhibiting development and innovation. our repo layout is not! absolute worst case is, that we switch again. though that is a risk we still encounter if we do repo layout changes now. best regards Thilo
