Revision Control - All-in-one code repository

An integrated revision control server combining the world's best open source Version Control Systems: Subversion, Git, Bazaar, and Mercurial. A web interface for each system is included, making it easy to browse through the code base, compare revisions and manage repositories for multiple projects.

Revision Control

Core Features:
