Finally, a good cvs/svn alternative.

Written by Walter on Yes Linus Torvalds is totally right here. Indeed cvs sucks especially starting a new project and branching. Not even talking about a merge, totally agree. Now let's hope sourceforge will install it since they host so many projects it will get really popular instantly ;). For now I will start using <a href="http://git.or.cz/">GIT</a> at home :




Just one comment, watch your ego dude! It would be so much cooler if you were a bit more humble, audiences don't like to be dissed.

Hmm tried to compile this on a OpenBSD system. First bumped into uintmax_t errors (apparantly this is new flavor of types to resolve possible problems between 32 and 64 bit machines) So I did following define:
#define uintmax_t unsigned long long

This got me further in compile but then it chocked again :( here :

-bash-3.00$ gmake
CC pager.o
In file included from /usr/include/sys/select.h:38,
from pager.c:1:
/usr/include/sys/event.h:53: error: syntax error before "u_int"
/usr/include/sys/event.h:55: error: syntax error before "u_short"
In file included from pager.c:1:
/usr/include/sys/select.h:45: error: syntax error before "pid_t"


So I'm gonna wait with git till it's a easier in compiling it or available on all platforms I use :D.
Also no binaries for windows/mac is a bit disappointing (did find some binaries for openbsd but on that system I'd like to compile it myself :D) . Cvs has binaries for every platform and compiles on most too so sticking with it until git has matured a bit more...
