Centralized vs decentralized comment 000

Don't forget that distributed systems make it easier to recover from a fork. It's just a merge, after all.

I don't think they have any effect on how easy it is to fork in the first place; tools like cvsps and tailor make it trivial to pull history out of one repository and into another.
