Not on Subversion yet? Try Git

Posted by Charles | May 31, 2008 .

I’ve start seeing more and more open source developments in the RIA space, especially ActionScript and Flex based open source projects. I don’t know any of those new projects is using CVS anymore, rather most of them must be on Subversion. If you start something new, regardless it’s open or not, you might take a pass on Git, a new distributed open source version control system.

The Ruby on Rails godness David Heinemeier Hansson (aka DHH) recently wrote a piece about Git.

So given all that, I think the Git move is even more interesting. That camp is competing not only to convince people that a new paradigm is appropriate for many things, but also as that it, one-out-of-many, should be the one to embody it.

The Git public repository is called Github. It’s free with 100MB disk space if you don’t mind everything on it goes public. For a bit privacy, the price range from $7/mo to $100/mo. So far there are a few high profile opensourcers there, such as Ruby on Rails, Capistrano, Prototype, and Scriptaculous. Got your attention?
