Love Git, Love Gitosis
There was always so much inertia attached to the status quo:
- I use something else at my job.
- I don’t really contribute to any distributed projects.
- My tools have no Git integration.
- I hardly ever branch.
- What I have is plenty fast enough.
No more excuses.
The fact is, my company and I often make different choices (thank God, otherwise I’d be using VSS or StarTeam). I frequently work on my own projects from several locations. File manager or IDE integration is less important to me than it once was. As far as branching goes: forgive me, for I did not truly comprehend.
So, I switched everything over. It was pretty straightforward, except for one minor annoyance with gitosis. I’ll probably move a few projects on GitHub eventually, but gitosis allows me to preserve the stuff nobody else really wants to see. svn2git made converting my existing Subversion repositories completely painless.
