I’ve been a little bit slow to learn git. I put that down to it being my fourth version control system (after rcs, cvs and svn). Like a fourth child it brought with it less novelty and I’ve got less free time to get to know it. That being said, git is a revolutionary advance over subversion and is worth committing the effort to learn.
A little while ago I imported my deployment library ‘deprec’ to github. This week I discovered a feature that shows me what changes other open source developers have been making on their forks of the deprec codebase.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19
I’m pretty excited at how simple it is to see what other people have done with my code and merge it into deprec. Github have provided a feature that I think will really aid in the development of open source. Well done guys!
 I don’t have kids (yet) but if and when I do I hope they realize this was said in jest!
