  • One of my esteemed prior co-workers recommends that I follow git releases very closely.

    Is git not yet stable? Is the bleeding edge still needed? For whom? Or is what a distro package manager (eg Ubuntu Paunty or Intrepid apt-get .debs) provides good enough for most folks?

    I've added a "git-update" command into my path so I can just say "git update" occasionally

    Nice. That ability to extend it simply is awesome.

    Since I would expect git-update to operate against the remote repo for the current project directory, i might name this git-gitupdate on my system to avoid misunderstanding.

    to get all the newest features and bugs.

    how good / bad is the features / bugs ratio?

    # I had a sig when sigs were cool
    use Sig;
    • It pretty much just works so I don't worry about the bugs that much. My Ubuntu only goes up to and I'm currently on 1.6.4.rc2. I forget what happened but I'm fairly sure I want to be at 1.6.2+.
