Is that a question coming out of thin air? I would suggest git.

In fact, I was thinking playing around to move texlive to git. If then
luatex/context/pdftex/whatever switches to git pulling and pushin
would be soo much easier.

If there wouldn't be the difficulty to have increasing revisions numbers
easy to be done ...

SHIFNAL (n.,vb.)
An awkward shuffling walk caused by two or more people in a hurry
accidentally getting into the same segment of revolving door. A
similar effect is achieved by people entering three-legged races
unwisely joined at the neck instead of the ankles.
