Magit is one of those features that makes Emacs special. It is an
interface to git that simplifies many workflows and is a joy to work
with. Several ESS developers including myself use it on a regular
basis. If you don't use magit for your git tasks, I highly recommend it.
For those of you that do use it, the maintainer of magit Jonas Bernoulli
has launched a kickstarter:
The goal is for him to be able to work on magit for a year and sort
out important issues, including performance and an improved UI. If
you're a magit user maybe you would like to contribute.
