I’ve not noticed it to be slow or unfriendly, but I learned version
control on CVS so maybe its just that I’m used to crap. Merging is a
bitch, I’ll give you that.
As for corruption, using an fsfs backend makes it pretty hard to corrupt
a repository except by user error. I’ve never seen an fsfs-backed repo
How is p4 less accessible? Easy download and works on nearly any

To take my svn and your p4 repositories as an example, and assuming
darwinports, and understanding that my frustration comes from the fact
that I often want to look at your code without installing it:
There’s also the whole “lock individual files with ‘p4 edit’” thing,
which I admit is purely personal preference, but I like the svn workflow
Again, not bad, just different… but in a way that does make it a pain
