Version Control by Example – book by Eric Sink
A _GOOD_ book on how distributed version control systems work and why they’re different from (and better than) the preceding generation of version control. I helped edit this (barely) but mostly I just think it’s a good book. It also hawks Eric’s new product… but that’s OK and it is NOT just advertising.

MF Bliki: VersionControlTools
Martin Fowler surveys the version control landscape. He says there are only 3 decent options today: Subversion, Mercurial, or Git. Subversion is best for non-distributed (which is fine for many uses), between Mercurial and Git, Git appeals to those who like to play w/ tools and Mercurial to those who want to get the work done.

On branching
Another set of thoughts on branching strategy in a DVCS. In this case the author likes that Mercurial has bookmarks AND branches AND cloning. He uses them for different things: bookmarks for working on a single feature, branches for working on "major lines of development", and cloning is his own personal preference for all cases.

Google Code Blog: Mercurial server-side clone support for Project Hosting on Google Code
Users can create clones of Mercurial repositories on Google's hosting site. That allows users to make edits (patches) and both share them publicly and also offer the result back to the project. It prevents people without commit access from being second-class citizens with inferior tools.

Hg-Git Mercurial Plugin
A great idea, this is a client-side plug-in for Mercurial that allows mercurial clients to work with a git server. Now build one that goes the other way and maybe we can avoid some of the git vs mercurial wars!

PEP 374 -- Migrating from svn to a distributed VCS
Python's evaluation of distributed version control systems. I consider this THE reference on DVCS comparisons because (1) they documented what they were doing very well (objectives, tests and results), (2) it was done objectively rather than by a proponent of one system or another, (3) it was tested with a good-sized repository. And I really trust these guys -- I know that they know what they're doing. They chose mercurial.
