# Nice short intro to Bazaar

Edd Dumbill has written a real nice short intro to the Bazaar - a reimplementation of GNU Arch revision control system. I have been getting tired of keeping up with new Subversion revisions and the mod_dav/mod_dav_svn module that I need to keep updating. By contrast Arch allows read only archives using plain HTTP. Most importantly it supports distributed repositories - this allows me to maintain a repository of system config in the servers that I manage, and sync them when I want with my home machine. Since Subversion maintains the CVS tradition of centralized repositories, it was impossible to maintain two different revisions on the client machines before syncing them in one go with my backup server.
