The most important point of this paper is the proof that a distributed source control does indeed work. Such a proof was needed before we could start implementing the system. As of this writing the program is not yet completed, although it has enough functionality to allow a two-person team to collaborate on a project. We've found that exchanging synchronization scripts via e-mail within such a small team is not only convenient but also encourages the exchange of comments and notes about each change.
