John Goerzen: "Whose Distributed VCS Is the Most Distributed?"

John Goerzen tells a story about his evaluation of SCM tools for the following problem:

One of my tests was a real problem: I wanted to track the Linux 2.6.16.x kernel tree, apply the Xen patches to it, and pull only specific patches (for the qla2xxx driver) from 2.6.17.x into this local branch. I wanted also to be able to upgrade to 2.6.17.x later (once Xen supports it) and have the version control system properly track which patches I already have.
