Re: [riena-dev] GIT for Riena (committer vote)

Please keep in mind that EGit can only get into a state where it will
make you grin if folks use it to do real work and provided feedback to
the developers (and contributions, of course).

Where would Riena be today if the community decided to adopt a "wait and
see" approach?

I'm not saying that you have to move to Git/EGit, all I'm asking is that
you (not you specifically Stefan, I mean "you" collectively) think about
this in slightly broader terms: think about how you can balance you
real-world needs to get your work done vs. how you can provide a
valuable service to the EGit project and the community by providing
feedback from real development using the tools in their current state.

FWIW, EGit won't make you cry. I'm not sure if they're quite a the grin
state. I use it daily and find that I am dropping to the command-line a
lot less with each release.

Thanks for your consideration,

Wayne

Should we move to Git, should we postphone it for another year (or some time). There is no urgency to move to Git, but as I currently see that some committers in Riena are working on several topics at the same time, it would certainly help them and make things easier for them if they could easily switch between topic branches for example.
