           I recommend git, though I have not

 Git: A Case Study In Distributed Version Control

 Wednesday, April 1 (really :)

 6:45 pm, Suspenders Restaurant

 Brian Cully will speak on Git: A Case Study In Distributed Version 
 Control. This talk will go over what distributed version control systems 
 (dVCS) mean, and how git applies itself to its problems.

 bjc has been involved in open source since the mid 90s, contributing to 
 the BSDs and Linux at various points. He once worked at Panix, and now 
 works at Junction Networks. Wherever he goes he seems to end up working 
 on the version control system, and is now using git exclusively.

 (pls note later meeting time.  We recommend that you arrive early in 
 event you plan to have dinner)
