This repository consists of a set of text documents, along with
a few pictures, which attempt to describe the merits of distributed
version control in general, as well as quick-start notes for users
moving from Subversion to Git (and to a lesser extent, Mercurial).

I'm also using it to to keep detailed running notes on the use of
egit, the Eclipse plugin for Git.  Egit has decent coverage of the
subset of Git operations used most often, but in a number of cases
the mapping from Git to egit is not obvious. Egit has also has some
quirks and a few significant holes that are important to know about.

As egit is very much a work in progress, the file git/egit-notes.txt
will be changing regularly.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
