[fossil-users] wish we were using fossil

2010-10-22 Thread Joshua Paine
With one of my several hats on, I'm in a small team using git. Another 
team member just checked some stuff into trunk that should have been on 
a branch. Nothing else had happened since, so in fossil I would have 
just edited that commit and put it on a new branch. In git that can't 
actually be done without danger once other people have pulled, so I had 
to create a new commit rolling back the changes, then branch and cherry 
pick the earlier changes, then figure out how to make my new branch 
shared instead of private. Just want to say thanks for fossil making my 
life easier on most of my projects, and being able to move commits to 
another branch after the fact and shared-by-default branches are good 
features. Also not having a misanthropic command line interface.

Thanks for the words of encouragement.  I hope you continue to find Fossil
useful.
