I’ve been using SVN for several years now, since late 2005 or early 2006, and its done me well since then. But a new darling has entered my life and its name is Git. I like git for some very specific reasons: It’s stupid easy to work with and as good or better then SVN for reliability. Also it helps that my preferred IDE, Komodo, recognizes and works with Git as well.
That said, I use google code for hosting my public projects and it only supports SVN and HG. So one night I read up on git and noticed that it had a plugin/support for bridging to a SVN managed repo. So began my journey.
