IMHO, the biggest barrier is currently the documentation.  I've been 
following the discussions on this mailing list and checking the website 
from time to time, but am not prepared to work out all the details of 
how depot works by reading the actual source.  A five-minute tutorial on 
the key features of depot and a description of how to set up a demo 
instance to tinker with would be very useful.
