i want to end it here

we all can be sure, luca has good intentions.

i had a longer discussion off list, and ... learned somethings about git, but ...
as far as i understood david and guenter, sourceforge will be it for some time

i am totally into learning something new, but a discussion about git, with gitters,
except torvalds, failed thirdtime for me.

so please could we stop this. please.

all the best

I had the exact same impression: That the arguments pro git(hub) sound a
lot like zealotry or evangelism.

Everybody can show a success case. You look at a long list of projects
and pick one that was successful, you don't pick one that was a failure.
Anecdotal evidence is no evidence at all.

Some real evidence: The Python core developers compared git against
mercurial and bazaar, and git came in *last*.

"Second, and just as important as the first issue, is that the Python
core developers liked git the least out of the three DVCS options by a
wide margin."


If you want to make a case pro git(hub), then you should provide us with
some hard and quantifiable research, like the one I quoted, not with

Please stop. Just because you don't like a person's opinion doesn't mean
he's a troll.
