No GIT experience, but have been experimenting with Bazaar which is the
default SCS on the new open source repository launchpad.net. To be honest I
hadn't heard of it until I looked at putting a project on launchpad.
Anyway, it's still early days so I wouldn't like to offer support yet but
I'm guessing if Canonical are using it it must be decent enough. I did find
this GIT/Bazaar comparison that I thought was very interesting ... and fair
http://bazaar-vcs.org/BzrVsGithttp://bazaar-vcs.org/BzrWhy has more other links to comparisons.
The user guide gives a good overview
In particular the use of the gatekeeper approach (whether that be a person
of what they call a PQM) is interesting
There is a Bazaar plugin for eclipse which was a little tricky to install -
but by no means impossible. There are also standalone tools - Olive is the
one I have... I think it was in the Ubuntu repository.
As I say - I have not had enough experience to give the "thumbs up" yet but
it seems to work well and I think it is something worth considering. I only
mention it because I wasn't aware of it myself until recently so perhaps it
is not as well known!?
