Decentralized version control system

'svk' is a decentralized version control system. While Subversion (svn) aims to take over the CVS user base, svk attempts to take over the user base of the other version control systems, both users who have already switched to another version control system and those who do not yet use version control. It is written in Perl and uses Subversion's underlying filesystem.
