Re: [aspectj-dev] Discrepancies in the git eclipse aspectj repository

Thinking back all that ... very long... time ago to when I last used CVS in anger, I'd not really expect anything other than tags to be of much use.

Having been using Git for 2 years now, it amazes me just how much productivity we managed to screw out of CVS over the years :)

After the webmaster ran it, I noticed mistakes in the git repo and had
to just patch them up manually and move on.  I've not had much reason
to go back and checkout older versions recently, so don't know how
damaged things are in the past.

that seems a reasonable expectation to me.
