Git Feature Branches

March 4th, 2008, 12 Comments

I’m really liking this. So I set up some Git feature branches to help get Redmine patches from their BTS into their SVN trunk faster. (I don’t know why, but it seems to take a *very* long time for that to happen.) Each BTS patch gets a Git feature branch. My Git repo for this […]

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 […]

Trac & Git

February 28th, 2008, 22 Comments

For quite some time now, I’ve been running Trac over at software.complete.org. Most of my free software projects — well, the ones where I actually go to the effort to make formal releases — have a Trac instance. This Trac instance provides a wiki, bug tracker, downloads area, timeline (with RSS feeds), and VCS integration. […]

Experimenting with Git

February 26th, 2008, 3 Comments

I’ve been writing about Git a bit lately. I’ve decided to switch some of my Debian work over to it to start with, as well as some of my other projects. Although I was thoroughly frustrated with Git a year ago, now I am quite pleased with it. What’s different? The documentation is a LOT […]

Revisiting Git and Mercurial

February 22nd, 2008, 9 Comments

Exactly one year ago today, I wrote about Git, Mercurial, and Bzr. I have long been interested in VCS, and looked at the three main DVCS systems back then. A Quick Review Mercurial was, and for the moment, remains, my main VCS. Bzr remains really uninteresting; I don’t see it offering anything compelling that Mercurial […]

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 […]

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 […]
