'arch' is a revision control system with features that are ideal for projects with widely distributed development, concurrent support of multiple releases, and substantial amounts of development on branches. It is intended to replace CVS and corrects many mis-features of that system. 'arch' permits branching and merging across multiple, distributed, public and private repositories. arch has fancy features for merging branches. It cleanly handles renamed files and directories. It includes a web interface for browsing repository contents. It has a feature called "revision libraries" which can be used to get very fast and very convenient access to past revisions.
