        ~ Independant workers, who have their own business, without internal 
structure, or if one very small ( because they can't work on a centralize 
model for managing development)

        Excuse me for my ignorance but .... What do you call ACID properties ?

        For the moment Arch with tla is limited to POSIX environment, should we 
considered that it is a ARCH requirement, or on only a caracteristic of the 
first implementation of ARCH ? Should we imagine that ARCH can be open to non 
POSIX SYSTEM (Mainframe, etc ...) ?

        About the problem described by James, can we imagine to be able to 
the propagation of history between branches ? (Deleting history for example 
after a fork, because we don't want to merge after from the original branch, 
alpha branch -> beta branch -> rc branche -> final branch  we don't need to 
propagate history because we only need to continu history, not to merge

We are only exchanging idea, free to every one to do what he wants after.
