There are something like 10 viable SCMs nowadays. There's no point for a platform like Gna to support all of them.

How about on an unofficial level, at least?

We don't even need the binary for darcs, just the ability to ssh to a single location, and read/write to a common directory. Just some filespace for project members. Nothing for Gna! to install and support.

That's unfortunate. Darcs is a very nice SCM, and adding support for it is relatively easy to implement -- we only need a directory that all project members can write to and the darcs binary.

Please reconsider :-)

Darcs is not supported and there is no plan about it.

Will darcs be or is it supported?

If only single developer pushes changes to the public repository, it could be presumably be kept in the download area and updated with rsync. But if multiple developers need to push, then darcs would have to be installed on the machine (and accessed through ssh just like rsync). Optionally of course a repository browser (darcs.cgi) and so on would be nice.
