What Is GIT, And Why Don't I GIT(IT)

Postby Adler on Sat Aug 04, 2007 11:34 pm

Hi All,

I've gone through a bunch of Linux distros, have used a good deal of things to get software e.g. Automatix, Synaptic, Command Line, but saw something new -- GIT.

I ran across this when I went from Beryl to compiz-fusion. Is this something useful?

This is what you find among the first hits when you search for git in google

It is useful for developers

Husse,

Thanks. GIT seemed to have been used in the packaging / development of compiz-fusion. Or, at least in the repositories that I used.

Perhaps it was a silly question.

Not at all if you notice it. As you see from the link it's handling of version history - has been many apps for that
