Bazaar: Version Control System

October 5, 2008 § Leave a comment

There are numerous distributed Version Control systems nowadays. There are Git, Mercurial, and Bazaar.

From first impression, I like Bazaar, here’s why:

  • It’s written in Python.
  • Furthermore, because it is written in Python, installation is a breeze: `easy_install bzr`
  • It has similar terminology to SVN. That means lower learning curve.
  • Bazaar has really good storage compression. See the comparisons that others have done below.

Bit of History:

Martin Pool started Bazaar when he was just hired by Canonical, ltd.


List of Projects using Bazaar[link]:

Below is not the complete list, see link above for more.

  • Bugzilla@Mozilla
  • GNU Mailman
  • MySQL
  • Squid – Caching Proxy project. It caches frequently visited web pages.
