Definitely agree with you. Both git and hg are improvements on older tools. Bitbucket does allow pulls now, but it is in Githubs shadow. It casts a huge.

Has anyone taken a look at the help screens for git and hg? Dear Lord, looks shockingly similar. So similar... Draws a parallel from their respective 'social' websites on purpose? Feels like a version control conspiracy.

    No need for any conspiracy theories; copying cool features from other programs and websites is an accepted development strategy. After all, why should should you only implement your own good ideas?

      It was a joke, but good point. However I would feel silly imitating another open source prject so closely. But hey, why not? It happens all the time.

        git and hg were both started within a couple of weeks of each other, in response to the free (lower-case "f") licences of BitKeeper being withdrawn. Neither is really an imitation of the other; any similarity is probably mostly down to the system they were both designed to replace.
