Maybe a comparison with Mercurial (hg) would also be nice since it is,
in many points, similar in use and philosophy to GIT. But mercurial is
written in Python; for Windows users (and gui addicts) there is
TortoiseHG, in the same era that TortoiseSVN (and TortoiseCVS,
and ...). As I was writing this post, I was wondering and there is
TortoiseGIT also ! (see http://code.google.com/p/tortoisegit/).

Hope you could share your paper on this group! Anyways, I would be
happy to have a look at it...
