I don't anticipate Debian "catching up" for some time; monotone
releases pretty regularly (about every 3-4 weeks). 0.30, specifically
has some features that I wanted to make sure we had (speedups, I
think, was the big one, but I don't remember). I don't anticipate
needing to upgrade (particularly) until workspace merge lands, though
every release is generally faster than the last.
 In the interest of full disclosure before someone gets bit by this
without warning ... monotone currently doesn't have workspace
merge, and merge conflicts are handled in a 3-way merge tool.
It's kind of painful at the moment. Fortunately, it's pretty
smart about merging, and conflicts are relatively rare (*very*
rare compared to svn and cvs merges).
The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils]. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
