Hi all,

As requested, here are some initial considerations of mine regarding the 
distribution of CKAN model changes:


Summary overview:

- brief summary of the "want and needs"

- coarse-grained comparative analysis of Mercurial and CKAN (because it 
was thought that Mercurial solves a similar problem to that which 
distributing CKAN changes addresses)

- concepts of Mercurial that strictly don't apply to CKAN are indicated

- concepts of Mercurial the do carry over to CKAN are also indicated

- actions needed to distribute changes between instances are indicated

- the names of the discarded Mercurial concepts are then reused to 
direct those actions

Feedback always gladly received!

Best wishes,
