Why Git is Better Than X

by ghis & 2 others (via)
This site is here because I seem to be spending a lot of time lately defending Gitsters against charges of fanboyism, bandwagonism and koolaid-thirst. So, here is why people are switching to Git from X, and why you should too. Just click on a reason to view it.


MovingToDistutils - django-hotclub - the how and why of Pinax's move to distutils - Google Code

by greut

Until recently, Pinax had two choices for a given external dependency:

  1. use svn:externals and point to the external dependency's svn repository
  2. include the external dependency code in the Pinax codebase

However, there are problems with this approach:

  1. it largely relies on external dependencies being in svn and this is increasingly not the case (although it was when Pinax started)
  2. it makes it difficult for Pinax itself to move away from svn
  3. there is no management of dependencies between external dependencies, nor between particular projects in Pinax and their individual dependencies

To solve these problems and more, Pinax is switching to a distutils-based approach. This means:

  1. externals dependencies are encouraged to be released as distutil-compliant packages with a valid and put on PyPI
  2. development versions of dependencies can be pulled in in a variety of different ways including from git, hg or bzr repositories

svn:externals are evil
