About other differences, please don't heasitate to consult http://git-htmldocs.googlecode.com/git/git-config.html And if there are still questions, they are there to be answered here. /Torsten -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
