Drop "efficiency" claims in fossil-v-git, as the term is not quite right to describe the point. Use "self-sufficient" instead. ... (file: [366be6c527] check-in: [41b34915bb] user: drh branch: trunk, size: 50640)

Recast the blockchain.md doc as "Is Fossil a Blockchain?" (answer: mostly no) and updated all references to it to either remove the term, use "repository" instead where that's sufficiently clear, or to say either "Merkle tree" or "hash tree" instead where we need to distinguish the hash tree itself from the rest of the repo DB file's contents. This depends on the prior CAP theorem doc, since part of the argument for Fossil not being a blockchain gets us down into those weeds. EDIT: Moving it to a branch because we're still arguing the point on the forum. ... (file: [9886b47cff] check-in: [855578b610] user: wyoung branch: fossil-as-blockchain, size: 47522)

18:28
Added "more" column to the fossil-v-git doc: we have evidence of people reading only the summary table at the top and then reacting to their understanding of that brief one-line characaterization of the difference rather than engaging with the detailed arguments making up the bulk of the article. ... (file: [6094fdbd9d] check-in: [fd9e211d39] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 45644)

Moved all of the "Features found in Fossil but not in Git" up from section 3.1 into section 2.1 Featureful of the fossil-v-git doc, where such differences are otherwise covered. Removed section 3.2, giving the opposite case, since all of the Git features not found in Fossil are already covered elsewhere in the doc, sometimes more than once, as with the rebase issue. ... (file: [2356aac341] check-in: [d357f81b6c] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 44066)
02:40
Updated the discussion of SHA-3 support in Fossil within the fossil-v-git.wiki doc now that Fossil 2.10 is out. Basically, it changes the tense on all SHA-1 text to past tense. ... (file: [394995872f] check-in: [d887a6d74d] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 45325)

Rewrote the "One vs. Many Check-outs per Repository" section in fossil-v-git.wiki to focus more on default modes of operation and their consequences in response to nit-picking on the Lobste.rs thread about this article pointing out that you can make Git work in the Fossil style. Defaults matter. ... (file: [f81bed322f] check-in: [10a57cece1] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 45673)
12:00
Added paragraph on feedback loops, control theory, and OODA to the fossil-v-git doc, distilling a recent discussion on the forum. ... (file: [72140b6862] check-in: [b0f2a48f98] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 44660)

00:21
Linked to the new material showing Fossil's idea of user power hierarchy from the comment in fossil-v-git.wiki about Fossil's support for the organization's social and power hierarchies. It's not that Fossil has *no* support for enforcing this, it's that it's usually a fairly loose match between the two systems. This is an important point, because some people new to Fossil expect 1:1 mapping and get disappointed when we tell them it just doesn't do that. ... (file: [6f674ee8fe] check-in: [b72795a339] user: wyoung branch: caps-doc, size: 39498)
00:17

03:33
Relaxed the "enforcing" language around the planned change of hash policy from "auto" to "sha3" in Fossil 2.10 within section 2.8 of the fossil-v-git.wiki doc, and clarified what will actually happen with that release as compared to the current release. ... (file: [810f9698f2] check-in: [c5461fb599] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 39493)

2019-08-09
12:15
Added an aside in fossil-v-git about Git's minority use of high-level scripting languages aside from its dominant one, POSIX shell, with a comparison to Fossil's own use of high-level scripting. ... (file: [49d757088e] check-in: [1296ee46a3] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 39338)

2019-08-08
05:55
Moved the comment about learning from Git's design mistakes to a place higher up in the document where it makes more sense. It was almost a non sequitur where it was before. ... (file: [2045671427] check-in: [0e0d76ee27] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 37057)

05:11
Deferred discussion of data modeling from the intro of fossil-v-git to section 2.3 where it's fully covered. This material now talks more clearly about Fossil's hybrid NoSQL/relational data model, rather than handwave it as "relational". ... (file: [fff39f5d05] check-in: [e299892341] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 36147)
04:42

10:16
Many improvements to section "2.3 Durable" in fossil-v-git.wiki, largely involving the merger of a near-repeat of the same points down in section 3.1, but also adding more information emphasizing the durability of SQLite DBs in general and Fossil repos in specific. ... (file: [7936633cea] check-in: [cd989fed40] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 33674)

02:29
Prior section 2.5 in fossil-v-git is now section 2.4.4, since it's part of the "2.4 Linux vs SQLite" story. Little change in content; primarily just an organization fix. ... (file: [ec48b30d70] check-in: [e9628d7063] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 30595)
02:26
Extracted part of section 2.1 and merged it with the entire prior content of section 2.5 in fossil-v-git as a new section, "2.2 Efficient and Effective". These were two partially-redundant sections covering Git's sprawl of tools, third-party dependencies, and extensions vs Fossil's self-contained single-binary nature. The new section combines all of that. ... (file: [42fb1abceb] check-in: [5c24bee9fd] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 30594)

Moved the comment about patch files in fossil-v-git down to a footnote and expanded on the point. It isn't a Git vs Fossil difference, but we need to explain why "just use a patch file" isn't a good answer to the common "allow easy drive-by contributions" wish. ...

Re-cast the "BSD vs GPL" section as "Accepting Contributions." In the end, that's what the difference in license amounts to. This makes the section longer, but the change includes a link to skip past the actual licensing discussion for those who don't want to read our attempt at an unbiased discussion of GPL vs BSD, since even if we've succeded, we won't always agree with the user's biases! ...

Moved the "BSD vs GPL" section up in the fossil-v-git doc and made it a sub-section of a new "Linux vs SQLite" section which has two other sub-sections: "Development Organization," which contains an expanded version of what used to be called "Cathedral vs. Bazaar" and "Scale," which contains what is left of the prior version's "Linux vs. SQLite" section. These are sub-sections of a common parent because they were mutually repetitive, and they're all aspects of the "Linux vs. SQLite" comparison, not separate things at all. ...

Moved a sentence from the final paragraph up to the first in the "GPL vs BSD" section of the "Fossil vs. Git" doc.
