Intriguing blog about the new Git system.  I haven’t tried it myself yet, but sounds like it’s basically a version-controlled file system that (a) does it right; and (b) is easy to build on top of.  If it’s really as cool as this author says, I’m already thinking of several apps that I’d like to port:

  1. My home backup system to a terabyte RAID device.  I’d love to have this start storing file diffs.
  2. An even better replacement for svn.
  3. A way to share files across computers that runs far faster than svn, and is more automated.  (git is reputed to be very fast, and as a programmable platform, should make it possible to automatically trigger updates.  One question: can it support the push model?)

Has anyone tried git?  What do you think?
