.SH SYNOPSIS

\fICOMMAND [OPTIONS]\fR
.SH DESCRIPTION
Fossil is a distributed version control system (DVCS) with built-in
wiki, ticket tracker, CGI/http interface, and http server.

.SH Common COMMANDs:

add            cat            gdiff          praise         stash
.br
addremove      changes        grep           publish        status
.br
................................................................................

.SH FEATURES

Features as described on the fossil home page.

.HP
1.
.B Integrated Bug Tracking, Wiki, & Technotes
- In addition to doing distributed version control like Git and
Mercurial, Fossil also supports bug tracking, wiki, and technotes.


.HP
2.
.B Built-in Web Interface
- Fossil has a built-in and intuitive web interface that promotes
project situational awareness. Type "fossil ui" and Fossil automatically
opens a web browser to a page that shows detailed graphical history and
................................................................................

.HP
4.
.B Simple Networking
- No custom protocols or TCP ports. Fossil uses plain old HTTP (or HTTPS
or SSH) for all network communications, so it works fine from behind
restrictive firewalls, including proxies. The protocol is bandwidth
efficient to the point that Fossil can be used comfortably over dial-up.


.HP
5.
.B CGI/SCGI Enabled
- No server is required, but if you want to set one up, Fossil supports
four simple server configurations.

.HP
6.
.B Autosync
- Fossil supports "autosync" mode which helps to keep projects moving
forward by reducing the amount of needless forking and merging often
associated with distributed projects.
................................................................................

.HP
7.
.B Robust & Reliable
- Fossil stores content using an enduring file format in an SQLite
database so that transactions are atomic even if interrupted by a
power loss or system crash. Automatic self-checks verify that all
aspects of the repository are consistent prior to each commit. In
over seven years of operation, no work has ever been lost after

having been committed to a Fossil repository.
