GNOMEs Git

I never understood, why GNOME switched to yet another client/server based revision control (SVN) back then. But who was I to tell them that much more is possible. I aint the coder.

Anyway if I reas this from the new F-Spot:

This is the first release where we all used Git and it has massively paid off. Contributions are flowing in at a massive rate, from lots of people. See for yourself on Gitorious. Now that the release is out, it’s time to go over merge requests. It’s hard to keep up with them.

… I am happy that they did indeed switch to a distributed mechanism. Especially because it has always been hard to get any write access to some archives at GNOME. So it is going to be interesting what other effects this might have in the near future if people get comfortable with the new development style. Thumbs up!
