Among other features, Bonsai allows complex queries to be performed, as well as near real-time updates of check-ins to the CVS server. Bonsai is released under the Mozilla Public License,[1] and is thus free software.


Bonsai was founded by Terry Weissman. It was first written in Tcl, then later ported to the Perl programming language. It still uses Perl, but runs off a MySQL database, and can be served using any Perl aware webserver, such as Apache.
