That's the kind of centralized storage I'd like to see.

It won't be as easy as Arch.  Branching will require extra steps.

Managers have a concern about DRCS that it could lead to branches being
lost.  They want to be reassured that they'll be able to find everything
without being dependent on a particular programmer.  They want a system
where centralization of branches can be on by default.

That makes sense for a spread-out organization like Canonical, but it's
silly when everyone's on the same LAN.
