I apologize for the confusion I seem to have caused. I am with you,
as you know.  Here a somewhat more frank rewrite of what I had
meant to say:

People on this thread take one of two positions:
 a) have it the way we always had it in BOINC, mostly in ignorance of
what git could do for BOINC
 b) have it the same way that git is used in any other larger Open
Source project
More discussions in this thread do more harm than good in my experience,
hence my urgent request to stop it. Come to an agreement, which must be
b) for BOINC to survive,  or fork and have it like b). But, please, by
all means, stop discussing where there is not much to discuss. Nobody
will voluntarily change behaviors because of an email thread. One needs
to experience first hand how a different development model works to
learn from that.

Missunderstanding. "you" as in a) (the current git routine in BOINC) are
to do something different than the git-routine of b) for no particular

I hope to have clarified my position and that it is perceived as a
constructive contribution.
