I've seen lots of people using git for their own work, but not enough
using it in a distributed fashion. I've been asking questions about
how to collaborate with git, but I can't seem to find any git experts
who will answer questions.
For example, a coworker was working from home today and couldn't get
his crap cisco vpn working. Instead, he punched a hole in his
firewall and typed ``hg serve'' so I could grab work he was doing and
send him work everyone else was doing.
serve, bundle, export, import, incoming, and outgoing don't seem to
have equivalences in git.
I've contributed changes to both git and hg projects and haven't had
good luck submitting changes upstream. I'd be interesting in talking
to people who collaborate on projects using git both as first and
second-level contributors to see if their experiences are any better
than mine. I don't doubt that I may be doing it wrong.
Should memcached choose git, it may be as simple as putting up a page
that says, ``this is how you clone, this is how you work, this is how
you submit your changes back.''
