Git for Writers

Git for Writers is a guide to Git written with digital writers and designers in mind.

Although Git was originally created to manage software projects, including such large-scale efforts as Linux, Git will have enormous value for writers who are working in open-source formats such as HTML and XML.

It includes a conceptual overview of Git, including how Git can benefit both individual authors and teams of authors working together.

There are also a series of hands-on examples of Git in practice,

Long-Range Plans

Long-range plans for this project include two similar projects, Git for Editors, and Git for Digital Publishers.
