BitKeeper is apparently a nice product, however the licence for the
free-beer version is quite restrictive. It's no longer available from
the bitkeeper.com site, they instead advise you to install bk and run
'bk help', but copies of older licences are on the web, eg:
(d) Notwithstanding any other terms in this License, this
License is not available to You if You and/or your employer
develop, produce, sell, and/or resell a product which con-
tains substantially similar capabilities of the BitKeeper
Software, or, in the reasonable opinion of BitMover, com-
petes with the BitKeeper Software.
could be a problem for some people.
I believe the wording of that section has changed since bk 3.0, but i
cant find a URL for the current bkl licence.
