Why SQLite Does Not Use Git
SQLite does not use the Git version control system. SQLite uses Fossil instead. Fossil and Git are both block-chain version-control systems.
They are both ‘distributed’. They both store content as a sequence of immutable check-ins identified by a cryptographic hash. Git is wildly popular, to the point that many younger developers are familiar with nothing else.
And yet, the developers of SQLite prefer Fossil. This article tries to explain why.
