But as distasteful as Git can be, I think there's more "critical mass" in
terms of people who are familiar with it.  I'll be happy to set up that
repo (and we can start by putting the requirements doc in there) if we want.

Fossil has a built-in bugtracker and wiki, and the timeline is pretty nice
as well.  Just go to fossil-scm.org, as it is a running instance of Fossil
itself (except for the Downloads page).  Yes, out of the box it's not the
prettiest thing ever, but it can be themed if need be.

See here for an example:


That all said, probably everybody who isn't me is more comfortable with Git
and Github, and that is fine, so I have no problems using it whatsoever.
Obviously I don't want us to get into a big debate about what VCS and
collaboration platform to use, so if you want to set up something on
Github, Pat, feel free.
