Breezy, a platform for experiments in version control

Speaker: Martin Packman Event: Pycon UK – https://2017.pyconuk.org Date: 26 October Title: Breezy, a platform for experiments in version control

We are now in a git monoculture in version control system land. Where does that leave us if we want:

  • A command line interface that doesn’t suck
  • A format not built on (weakened) SHA-1
  • A way to customise behaviour using Python

This talk introduces Breezy, a fork of the Bazaar VCS, suitable for hacking on by anyone, with git format support using Dulwich. Find out how (and why) to contribute, with the confidence of a comprehensive test suite to validate your changes.
