       Fossil  is a distributed version control system (DVCS) with built-in wiki, ticket tracker,
       CGI/http interface, and http server.

Available COMMANDs:

       add            co             info           rename         ticket

       Features as described on the fossil home page.

       1.  Bug Tracking And Wiki - In addition to doing distributed version control like Git  and
              Mercurial,  Fossil  also supports distributed bug tracking, distributed wiki, and a
              distributed blog mechanism all in a single integrated package.

       2.  Web Interface - Fossil has a built-in and easy-to-use web  interface  that  simplifies
              project  tracking  and promotes situational awareness. Simply type "fossil ui" from
              within any check-out and Fossil automatically opens your web browser in a page that
              gives detailed graphical history and status information on that project.

       3.  Autosync - Fossil supports "autosync" mode which helps to keep projects moving forward
              by reducing the amount of  needless  forking  and  merging  often  associated  with
              distributed projects.

       4.   Self-Contained  -  Fossil is a single stand-alone executable that contains everything
              needed to do configuration management. Installation is trivial: simply  download  a
              precompiled  binary  for  Linux, Mac, or Windows and put it on your $PATH. Easy-to-
              compile source code is available for users on other platforms. Fossil  sources  are
              also  mostly  self-contained,  requiring only the "zlib" library and the standard C
              library to build.

       5.  Simple Networking - Fossil uses plain old HTTP (with proxy support)  for  all  network
              communications,  meaning  that it works fine from behind restrictive firewalls. The
              protocol is bandwidth efficient to the point that Fossil can  be  used  comfortably
              over a dial-up internet connection.

       6.   CGI  Enabled  -  No  server  is  required  to  use  fossil.  But  a  server does make
              collaboration  easier.  Fossil  supports  three   different   yet   simple   server
              configurations.  The most popular is a 2-line CGI script. This is the approach used
              by the self-hosting fossil repositories.

       7.  Robust & Reliable - Fossil stores content using an enduring file format in  an  SQLite
              database  so  that  transactions  are atomic even if interrupted by a power loss or
              system crash. Furthermore, automatic self-checks verify that  all  aspects  of  the
              repository  are  consistent prior to each commit. In over three years of operation,
              no work has ever been lost after having been committed to a Fossil repository.
