GIT with SVN


Normally, I would just use GIT without a bridge to another control system, but many companies use SVN. There are just so many benefits to using GIT that, for me, I am going to use it if there is a bridge to repository type the company uses. I certainly don’t hate SVN or CVS or Perforce, but GIT allows me to work the way that I know I am most productive; which is commit early, commit often.

What I mean by commit early, commit often is that I commit even if I only have part of the solution. As I find the other parts of the solution I commit those as well. That way when I am 2 or 3 days into a fix I already have the commit messages saved in GIT, so I don’t have to remember what I did for those 2 or 3 days. When the solution is shippable only then do I push it up to the company’s repository.
