Fossil SCM support


Fossil ( is a mature, fully-featured source code management platform, including its own DVCS, a Trac-like ticketing system, and a wiki. It is actually the SCM used by SQLite and Tcl/Tk, which is as traditional as it gets. It's also very scaleable and space-efficient.

It would be lovely if SourceTree supported Fossil in addition to Git and Hg. You probably have a lot of the infrastructure done already, and it only helps that the Fossil license is BSD-like.

Thank you for considering!

Thanks for the suggestion! We'll keep it in mind, but I have to be realistic and say it's probably not that likely given the comparatively small user base of fossil compared to Git/Hg.

Kind of a chicken-and-egg situation, I think; "build and they shall come" is very likely, not to mention the visibility boost that Fossil would receive by being incorporated into SourceTree. Were there a plugin interface for SourceTree, I'd probably contribute the Fossil support myself.

I'm not affiliated to them by the way, just an enthusiastic user of both Fossil and SourceTree :)

I'm going to close the question as requested by the Answer System, still hoping for Fossil support (honestly, their logo would look so much better on SourceTree than Git and Hg's ;))
