It's also overkill and a bad idea due to its complexity, as Martin said. Dig through the threads linked from http://vcs-pkg.org to find all the other arguments against it, especially by Pierre, who probably knows more Git than you and I together. If I were asked about which source package format will become standard in Debian for squeeze or squeeze+1, I'd have to say v3 quilt, for *sure*. The git/bzr were nice ideas but are never going to make it, IMHO. -- .''`. martin f. krafft <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> : :' : proud Debian developer, author, administrator, and user `. `'` http://people.debian.org/~madduck - http://debiansystem.info `- Debian - when you have better things to do than fixing systems "perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away." -- antoine de saint-exupéry
