I'm not familiar with that VCS, but how can it store no history since that, I
think, is the core of any (D)VCS, to have a history of changes, a versioning,
that's its purpose, isn't it?

I'm not an expert, I'm really curious about this.

For everyone discussing here, why did we fork to so many (unknown, less used)
(D)VCS'es since git and mercurial were in the spotlights?
