Traditionally a ship has at least a
%base desk, and typically
%landscape desk among others. The
%base desk has the kernel and base system software, while other desks are usually each for different apps. A desk is a series of numbered commits, the most recent of which represents the current state of the desk. A commit is composed of
1 an absolute time when it was created,
2 a list of zero or more parents, and
3 a map from paths to data.
