SourcePuller[1] is an opensource client for accessing the BitKeeper scm. It was originally developed by Andrew Tridgell, who reverse engineered the BitKeeper protocol.[2] While not widely used itself, it is best known for triggering the BitKeeper controversy,[3][4] which sparked the switch of the Linux kernel from BitKeeper to Git.[5]
