Welcome young grasshopper to the git-fu temple. Here you will be trained in the ancient art of git-fu. All secrets will be revealed to you during your training.
The purpose of this blog is not to try and tell everyone that git is better, but to highlight the less known but very useful features available to a skilled practitioner of git-fu. I will point out how other version control systems do similar things, not to show how git is superior but to try to find equivalence and give people frames of reference.
