I just re-stumbled across the darcs Rosetta Stone. What I hadn't
noticed before was the section "Recommendations for unification":
• rename get to clone
• rename changes to log
• rename record to commit (DVCS are popular enough now)
• rename rollback to new "repeal"
These changes sound sensible to me. (Plus `darcs uncommit`?) Is
there an active effort to make darcs more consistent with other
DVCSes? Regardless of which came first, git terminology is becoming
ubiquitous. After showing an existing git user darcs, and noticing
his surprise at `darcs annotate -p`, I think there may be a strong
case for a language reform.
