I've been testing out etckeeper myself on my new server, after writing
about it and predecessors for a couple of months in _Linux Gazette_.
Appears to fit the need really well.
The version (0.6) in Debian testing/unstable supports both git and hg
(Mercurial), but not yet Bazaar, for which Joey has a patch in process,
I believe. The instructions are better for git than for Mercurial, so
I'm being a lazy, ahem, git, and going with git, for now.
