I get this quote:

~      tla: Arch is a distributed source code management system. While
        projects like Subversion aim to be a "better CVS," arch has a
        different model (arch is the "protocol" as such, and tla is an
        implementation of a client). tla's models revolve around many
        developer branches diverging and later being merged back into a
        single canonical branch, rather than many developers working off
        the same branch. See for more
        information (as well as

So it sounds like at least the debrix portion of freedesktop (which I
believe includes is already using tla.
