      history and status information on that project.

  3.  <b>Autosync</b> -
      Fossil supports [./concepts.wiki#workflow | "autosync" mode]
      which helps to keep projects moving
      forward by reducing the amount of needless 
      [./branching.wiki | forking and merging] often
      associated distributed projects.

  4.  <b>Self-Contained</b> -
      Fossil is a single stand-alone executable that contains everything
      needed to do configuration management.
      Installation is trivial: simply download a 
      <a href="http://www.fossil-scm.org/download.html">precompiled binary</a>
      for Linux, Mac, or Windows and put it on your $PATH.
