Agreed. I have switched my gcc, binutils, gdb and glibc work to git. It is
so much better than svn. I regularly work on N different patches, each on
a different branch, at the same time. When they are done, I create a new
branch from trunk and do
# git merge
to merge them with minimum editing so that I can test them together.
When something goes wrong, I can fix it on problem branches and
do another merge.
"git revert" was also nice. I have used it more than once when I
checked in something which was totally broken.
BTW, I found this
was helpful to me.
