Anonymous VCS

Jan 18 17:38

Would anyone use a decentralized, anonymous VCS for small codebases? I've been thinking about this idea, of a VCS that allows a developer to publish code anonymously, allows users to clone repos anonymously, and prevents any snooper from discovering the locations of the users. It sounds good in theory but would anyone actually use such a system?

I think it could be useful in many cases like for publishing exploits and sensible code. For an anonymous VCS you could just run an https git service as a tor hidden service or somethink like that. To have that kind of service anonymous *and* decentralized is more tricky.

What is a VCS?

Version Control System, i.e. something that allows you to keep track how code/projects evolved over time, what changes were made when and by whom, etc. Exact features depend on the program used.

You mean something like Git?

Git, SVN and CVS are examples of a VCS, yes.
