A way to learn git

Since DragonFly is switching to git instead of CVS, something handy is ‘eg’, or Easy Git. It’s a wrapper around git that makes the transition from CVS easier, or so it says. (via _hasso_ on EFNet #dragonflybsd) The linked page lists some alternate programs that are also designed to make git acclimation easier.

  1. Why was git chosen, and not Subversion which is under a BSD related license?
    I am not a license crusader, just curious.

  2. There was an informal vote, to see what people were interested in, and Subversion barely came up. Decentralized VCS’s like git and Mercurial are more popular, I suppose.
