Fossil is a distributed version control system, bug tracking system and wiki software server for use in software development.



Fossil uses HTTP as its wire protocol, and stores its data in an SQLite database to ensure atomicity in any commits.

Fossil is cross-platform; its source code compiles on Linux, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows.

Released under the terms of the GNU General Public License, Fossil is free software.


Fossil is used for version control by the SQLite project, which is itself a component of Fossil. SQLite transitioned to using Fossil for version control over CVS in September 2009.[1]
