Better SCM Initiative : Vesta



Vesta is a mature software configuration management system that originated from an internal use by Digital Equipment Corporation (now Compaq/HP). It is a replacement for both CVS and make and provides more than mundane revision control systems. It is fully open-source under the LGPL.

Vesta is used to build itself, but there's also a make-based bootstrap package available that can be used to build it. Vesta was extensively tested on Linux (i386 and Alpha AXP) and Compaq Tru64, and is expected to work on other UNIX flavours. It remains to be seen whether it can work on Win32-based systems.
