http://zooko.com/log-2006.html#d2006-01-20-darcs_devel_community darcs devel community dura-link v1.0.0 A few times now I've seen people write that the darcs revision control system is hobbled by being written in an obscure language (Haskell) and thus depriving itself of contributors. However it appears to be the case that darcs enjoys a large and active community of contributors -- at least as large and active, and possibly more so, than the other Free Software revision control tools . Not all of these contributors are fluent in Haskell. Those who aren't do things like integration with other tools (Tailor , Trac+Darcs+Bazaar-NG ), add-on tools (darcs.cgi, darcsweb, a patch-dependency grapher, a xml-to-ascii translator for annotate results), unit tests (written in bash and Perl), testing and bug reporting. To get an idea of the current development community around darcs, look at the darcs-devel mailing list or the issue tracker.  http://zooko.com/revision_control_quick_ref.html  http://www.darcs.net/DarcsWiki/Tailor  http://progetti.arstecnica.it/trac+darcs/
