Well I thought I had lots to say, but I guess I don't. So add this site to the list of neglected blogs.

Git on a Mac

A note to people using Git on Mac OSX. There are some new softwares appearing for browsing Git repositories in similar ways to gitk. Two I'm playing with are Gitnub and GitX both are more 'mac like' than gitk (wish shell) and have nice appearance and install very easily. They also have shortcuts to open them up from Terminal when you are within a repository.

Worth checking out for version control, SCM, whatever you want to call it.

Git rant

My experience using Git with Drupal

For me Git works pretty well with Drupal. Prior to trying Git I was using SVN with SVN-X to manage revisions. It worked ok, but there were several occasions that I broke the repository, by accidentally deleting a hidden .svn folder, and then attempts to fix it went wrong and it became unsalvagable. I expect it was due to being new to version control, but it always stuck me as painful having countless .svn folders cluttering up my working copy. Read more »
