There seems to be a strong persistent meme that distributed VCS’s – Bazaar/Cogito/Montone et al – make it easier for people to fork projects and not return changes. I.e. to have ‘my libxml2’.

I think its important to note that people do this already, easily, by simply doing svn co svn://host/trunk. That is immediately a fork as soon as a change is made.

All a distributed VCS does is make it easier to return changes to the project.
