hg.complete.org is no more

February 29th, 2008, 2 Comments

As of today, hg.complete.org is no more. I have removed mercurial and hgwebdir from my server, removed hg from my DNS zone, and converted everything that was in Mercurial over to Git. (Except for hg-buildpackage, which I have orphaned) So there is now stuff at git.complete.org. I still have a ton of Darcs repos to […]

bzr, again

March 23rd, 2007, 13 Comments

I’ve talked a lot lately about different VCSs. I got some interesting comments in reply to my most recent post. One person took issue with my complaint that nobody really understood how to specify a revision to git format-patch, and proceeded to issue an incorrect suggestion. And a couple of people complained about my comments […]

More on Git, Mercurial, and Bzr

March 22nd, 2007, 15 Comments

I’ve been writing a lot about this lately, I know, but it’s an interesting landscape. I had previously discarded git, but in light of git-cvsserver (which provides a plausible way for Windows people to participate), I gave it a try. The first thing I noticed is that git documentation, in general, is really poor. Some […]

Mercurial & Git

March 18th, 2007, 6 Comments

About two weeks ago, I wrote about my thoughts on Mercurial and how I was switching to it from Darcs. At the time, I had skipped Git because of its lack of Windows support. I have some contributors to pieces of Free Software that I write that use Windows, and that seemed a pretty big […]

Re-Examining Darcs & Mercurial

March 6th, 2007, 9 Comments

I recently wrote an article or two about distributed version control systems. I’ve been using Darcs since 2005. I switched to Darcs, in fact, 10 days after the simultaneous founding announcements of git and Mercurial. Overall, I have been happy. I continue to believe that it is the most distributed of the distributed VCSs, which […]

Whose Distributed VCS Is The Most Distributed?

August 10th, 2006, 29 Comments

Lately I have been trying out a number of distributed version control systems (VCS or SCM). One of my tests was a real problem: I wanted to track the Linux 2.6.16.x kernel tree, apply the Xen patches to it, and pull only specific patches (for the qla2xxx driver) from 2.6.17.x into this local branch. I […]

First steps with git and I’m not all that pleased

August 8th, 2006, 6 Comments

I have been tracking 2.6.16.x here because Xen doesn’t have patches for 2.6.17 yet (why on earth that is, I don’t know.) But I need a few 2.6.17.x patches to the qla2xx driver. So I figure this is an opportunity to learn git. I learned git, but then quickly learned that I can’t just pull […]
