Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.12.0, Package name: pijul-0.12.0, Maintainer: ng0

Pijul is a version control system based on patches, that can mimic the
behaviour and workflows of both Git and Darcs, but contrarily to those
systems, Pijul is based on a mathematically sound theory of patches.

Pijul was started out of frustration that no version control system
was at the same time fast and sound:

- Git has non-associative merges, which might lead to security problems.
Concretely, this means that the commits you merge might not be the same as
the ones you review and test.

- Handling of conflicts: Pijul has an explicit internal representation of
conflicts, a rock-solid theory of how they behave, and super-fast data
structures to handle them.

- Speed! The complexity of Pijul is low in all cases, whereas previous
attempts to build a mathematically sound distributed version control
system had huge worst-case complexities. The use of Rust
additionally yields a blazingly fast implementation.
