Collaboration: a note on version control systems

Git is the Microsoft Word of version control systems: a massive waste of time, a fiddly piece of junk, that for reasons unfathomable found its way everywhere. I have much better uses for my brain cells and time than to study for a PhD in gitology, prerequisite for using a tool that gets in the way of doing the job instead of simply doing it. If you want to contribute to my projects, or me to contribute to yours, you have to use a well-designed, user-friendly, modern version control system, such as Mercurial, Darcs, or Fossil—almost anything but Git!


If you have anything you would like to contribute to my active projects, simply clone one of the repositories with Mercurial and email me a hg bundle.
