Re: Merits of ClearCase

That's a workaround, not a solution. Any VCS that requires an O(n) (n as the number of files being labeled) labeling post-processing pass in order to create enough records in the database to track commits atomically, when there are O(1) solutions like git where commits are atomic _without any additional effort), is just too slow to be worth anything in my opinion.

Besides, git is open source, clearcase is not. If git doesn't do what you want, then you can patch it. If clearcase doesn't do what you want, too bad.
Everybody is entitled to their own opinion - which, of course, means that we are entitled to ours. Nobody's forcing you to use Clearcase... Oh your work uses it. Well when you come down to it really that was a voluntary decision of yours too.
