I was wondering if you would considier putting a bkbits web frontend on I can think of a few cases where it might come in
handy. For example, one of the devs is too busy (understandably) to
roll a patch at a given point in time and states in response to a bug
report that (s)he'll get linus to pull the fixes later on. In this
case, people who like to live dangerously and don't want to wait might
take it upon themselves to surf over to and download
the ChangeSet rather than cloning an *entire* tree just to get it. I
suppose this would also serve as a means for people who do not (or
cannot) use bitkeeper to get said ChangeSet.
