Why? - To learn how Git works. - For fun. Goals/principles: - a Gat tree should always be usable by Git. - be comparable, speed-wise, to Git. - remove, unify, and simplify the UI; it's ok to be less "powerful" than Git. - more options are not always better. - it's ok to break backwards UI compatibility for greater consistency. it's ok to remove features. - liberally steal from other, better UIs (in particular darcs). Ideas: - represent the whole index/tree distinction by having a "stage" command, which stages files for commit. then avoid it as much as possible. - make "commit" like "commit -a", while "commit --staged" (or in response to a prompt if "commit" with stated content) like "commit". - similarly, "diff" is always "diff HEAD", while "diff --staged" like "diff --cached". - eliminate the many modes of reset. flushing the index is a stage subcommand; resetting the tree is "revert", and fiddling with the branch pointers (reset --soft) is a separate command. - figure out a better name / mode of operation for "rebase". provide a more darcs-like interactive ui. - in general, have the -i flag (for commit, stage, rebase) be interactive like darcs.
