 That is right.

 I suspect you'll never get a real name for him.

 Probably the same as highos above ?

/me still likes the ascending decimal revision numbers in
subversion, but even simple editing would often be easier in git.
e.g. last night I was part-way through adding the optional
--libexecdir switches to BLFS when I found that I wanted to undo a
libexec from a few days ago.  Too late to revert it, of course, but
in git I could have stashed the other changes I was working on, and
done a discrete commit to fix that one item.

 So, I'll be interested to see how this pans out, and good luck with

das eine Mal als Tragödie, dieses Mal als Farce
