Dear diary, on Tue, Apr 19, 2005 at 11:18:55AM CEST, I got a letter
where David Greaves <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> told me that...
> What's the most common thing to do? pull or update?

update for normal users.

I think 'git up' is easier to type than 'git pull'. It's the CVS/SVN
tradition, though, probably not the BK tradition.

> I'm not sure but I suggest that pull and get would be better choices.
> git pull
> git get

I don't like git get; it is something completely new - not in CVS/SVN
and means something completely different in BK, apparently.

> is it rare enough to justify:
> git --download-only pull

Dunno. I do it personally all the time, with git at least.

What do others think? :-)

I start to like the pull/update distinction, and I think I'll go for it.
