The SQLite developers know each other well and interact daily.
Fossil is designed for this development model.

We think you should ask yourself whether you have

software configuration management problems or
[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D._Richard_Hipp|D. Richard Hipp] scale

of changes, but Git tends to focus more on individual branches of
the DAG, whereas Fossil puts more emphasis on the entire DAG.
