Why (not) GIT
People reading my blog (I don’t know if there are some. If you read my blog, just drop me a comment!) must think that I’m somewhat a GIT zealot. Well I like git sometimes and sometimes I hate it by passion. Why I hate it:
zsh: do you wish to see all 141 possibilities (47 lines)?
Git offers 141 commands, low-level as well as high-level commands (did you ever need git-get-tar-commit-id). I often know that some workflow works in GIT, but I don’t know the exact commands. So I end up asking in #git (at least they are friendly and you get your answer fast). Thats pretty annoying. It’s not straight forward even you use it for a while. I heard that mercurial is better in that way, but at the moment I’m used to git. Well at least I give hg a try managing my debian package for gc-utils.
