I agree too.

It just looks like they've put several different pieces together and
claimed to be a new invention. I just thought it is interesting because
the similarities with SVN like the use of HTTP the use of diffs from the
client to the server revision, etc.

They have other similar patents. But with more companies signing patent
patent-infringement deals about open source just thought it would be
good to know.

Thanks,
