Thanks Richard, this is encouraging. I would appreciate any pointers to relevant documentation on multiple servers accessing a single repo, and the file locking options. I searched the Fossil docs again and didn't find anything on this. Then I'll need to look at what SAFE will support in this

Hello, I've just learned about Fossil and am very impressed with its capabilities, and think it could be an excellent way of providing collaborative development environment on SAFE Network, which is a secure, decentralised network, including storage and communications (and later computation).
