I agree.  That was the best explanation of changesets I've seen.  I 
understand it much better now.

One criticism is that your graph on the arch work model seems somewhat 
confusing.  It might require a little enhancement to get whats going on.

Yes, thats only if you're using Bitkeeper for free.  If Redhat bought a 
license it should be alright iirc.  For instance, we use bitkeeper at work 
but it would be ludricous for me to be constrained to work on Arch since 
the company is several thousand strong spread across the globe.  Luckily 
we bought our licenses.

However, I don't think there is anybody preventing you to use arch within 
the competing.  That license is not valid for that usage. (Disclaimer: I'm 
not a lawyer and this is not legal advice)  However, thats an RH internal 
issue.  Good luck to them. :-)
