Detect merge conflicts in realtime! http://baboon-project.org
What is Baboon?
One single merge conflict is pretty easy to solve. However, you might take several days before realizing there is one conflict. The longer you wait, the more conflicts you will have to solve.
Overlooking them will lead you to a merge hell.
Baboon is a lightweight daemon that detects merge conflicts in realtime.
pip install baboon or
New baboon project:
baboon register <nick> baboon create <project> <project-path> baboon start
Join an existing baboon project:
baboon register <nick> baboon join <project> <project-path> baboon init <project> <git-project-url> baboon start

How does it work ?
Baboon syncs your files in real time (well, every time you save one) with the ones of your contributors on a centralized server and simulates a merge of the files.
If a conflict is detected, everyone notified. Time to blame the culprit! He is lucky anyway. At this point, the merge conflict is super easy to solve: it is small. Remember, you are warned in real time.

- Rsync (over XMPP)
