Well, yes, but even in a decentralized development environment there
will still be centralized tracks. :-)

That is good information to know. I had not known about 'svk patch'
previously and reading about it now is very useful information. Even
though I did not say it this way I was thinking about the pulling
around of patches and changesets. (I was thinking arch-pqm when I
posted my previous message.) Once you have that then mail can easily
transport them. I will spend some time reading about svk patch and
smerge -P. Thanks for the pointer.

(chuckle) Yes. There is often so much to do. As you say it is only a
matter of time and resources to code this up. But this looks
reasonable to be able to do.

However, because it does not exist at this moment, I will stand by my
previous recommendation to the original poster. But now with the
option to change that recommendation once the capabilities being
discussed here become a proven reality. Looking forward to it!

Bob
