Why Fossil?

Fossil provides version control, and like most hep developers I use version control because of its several benefits.

However, you are likely reading this because of the implied second half of the question: why Fossil and not Git?

Being familiar with Git, you may find the following analogy statement instructive:

GitHub hosted repo : Self-hosted Fossil repo :: Expo floor booth : The Batcave

It’s a rough analogy, but it works.
