IIRC these are pulled from branch-2.14.

  * bump shelly version to 1.7.1.1 to avoid conflict with official version

patch 29bb91390b2b1d5066fc86d031b6f531a42e7275
Author: Ben Franksen <ben.franksen@online.de>
Date:   Wed Apr 29 11:49:34 CEST 2020
  * re-word the package description
  
  The motivation here was to explain better what makes Darcs different from
  other revision control systems. It is a bit more technical now and points
  out the conceptual simplicity that makes Darcs unique.

  * lots of updates to README.md
  
  This removes the link to http://darcs.net/Binaries, clarifies build
  instructions and documents limitations with respect to running the tests.
  The examples for running darcs have been reformatted and extended.
  Other sections have been partly re-worded and extended for clarity.

Thanks, I think the new one looks nice. (Slight nitpick would be whether
we can fairly claim that darcs is "unique" in being change-based, given
pijul, but I think it's reasonable enough.)

Another nice docs update, thanks!

This is a valid point. (If this were an abstract to a longer text I
would add a footnote here.)

Do you have an idea how to reformulate this so it does not make that
claim but is equally concise?

It could use the word "special" or "different" instead of "unique", but
neither is perfect. A longer statement would be "different from most
revision control systems".

Okay, the slightly longer version is good, I think. See patch2069.
