      Edit: Version Control Sytem System. Whoops. Can't edit the title now though...

      Github, Gitlab, git this, git that...I have spent the last few years learning the damn thing. But as an electrical engineer, I don't really have to deal so much with collaborating with others and merging branches all that often. I just want to keep track of SPICE netlists, verilog code, Jupyter notebooks, LaTeX files, and maybe some Arduino C code for rapid prototyping. Git seems to be too verbose for me.

      At first glance, I like the idea of Mercurial, perhaps because it is seems simpler, and because it is written in Python, and I have an affinity for Python projects even if I don't really look at their source code (like Tildes), but is this reliably used?

      Is there a VCS for a person who doesn't want to spend every day thinking about how they are supposed to use their VCS?
