I would say that this goes for darcs as well, but even more.

Darcs has a nice way of pushing patches via e-mail, with GPG signatures
even.  These can be processed in an automated way on the server,
verified against, for instance, the Debian keyring, and then applied to
the repository.

I think it would work even nicer.
