Revision control looks like a natural fit for (at least) the following:

* easy patch generation (branching) of existing packages.

And the following should, I expect, be backed by it:

* merge request mechanism

* creating interface for viewing existing merge requests and select them

* merge handling.

And distributed revision control in particular looks useful for:

* inter build service connection functionality.


That's in addition to the benefits of revision control in general, which
many attest and are all but self-evident anyway.
