Source code control – GIT
Chapter 15 introduces source code control in the context of git, a package initially developed by Linus Torvalds specifically for the Linux kernel. We start by comparing and contrasting centralized version control systems with distributed systems. Git is a distributed system. The system’s operation is described using a simple example project. We then look at the Eclipse graphical wrapper for git using the same example project. Finally we create a new git repository for one of the projects from earlier in the book.
Git; version control system; repository; commit; branching
And then realize that nothing is perfect. GIT is just closer to perfect than any other SCM out there.
