SRC - simple revision control

Because the UI was directly inspired by Subversion, people here might
find my latest project of some interest.

                        Simple Revision Control

The venerable RCS (Revsion Control System) has survived into the era
of distributed version control because it fills a niche: sometimes you
only *want* to track changes in single files at a time - for example,
if you have a directory full of documents with separate histories.

SRC (Simple Revision Control) is RCS, reloaded. It remains
determinedly file-oriented and doesn't even track the committer of a
change (because that's always you), but incorporates the design and
user-interface lessons of modern systems. It features sequential
revision numbers, lockless operation, embedded command help, and a
command set that will seem familiar to users of Subversion, Mercurial,
and Git.

convey if properly administered, but in the light of the wrongs it
would do and the harm it would cause if improperly administered
