in thread Thoughts on Git, Mercurial, Github, and Bitbucket.
I was under the impression that people mean something more than just "offline commits" when they talk about how awesome a distributed VCS is.
It's not just "offline commits". It's the ability to do everything offline (committing, branching, merging, tagging, rewriting history, inspecting history), and then have a sane way to synchronize that to some other repository ("online").
