Bazaar is a distributed version control system, that reduces barriers to participation in your project.
* Good performance: Bazaar status in a tree of 5,000 files takes just 0.5 seconds, so almost every open source project can get the advanced features of Bazaar without slowing down its developers.
* Safe with your data: Bazaar has a huge test suite that ensures that new file formats can be tested automatically. The development process follows best practice with code review of all core and community code landings.
* Friendly: Bazaar \"Just Works\" (which is why the Ubuntu team chose it for their project). Bazaar has a natural feel, you can publish your code on any web server or use a custom server for performance. Bazaar has perfect support for renaming files AND directories, which means you can unleash your community and merge efficiently even from contributors who are radically restructuring the tree.
* Easy to integrate: Bazaar is designed as a Python API with a plugin system, so it is easy to embed in your tools and projects and easy to extend or integrate with existing infrastructure.
