I use Bazzar [1] when checking in/out of Fedora's PackageDB code repo.
not that I do it all that often anymore... but IMO better then svn ( don't take
much ) for those that are stuck in windows it runs nicely on that as well as
linux and solaris...  I can't vouch for mac though... never tried it on my
kid's mac book or the wife's mac book pro.
