Linus on github
Čt 14 června 2012
Just to record for myself link to the awesome discussion about deficiencies of github. I have been tempted lately to the sweet proprietary arms of github lately (yes, their cheap commenting threads are a killer feature and as awesome as cheap branches in git itself). It also leads to the very nice blogpost on git commit messages.
It is unfortunately very rare to get a good comparison between GitHub and gitweb+git based on their technical merit, so the proprietary nature of github then stands as the only problem of github.
I should also take a longer look at git request-pull (1). Apparently its documentation is its weakest part (see example result and Linus’s comment on what consitutes a good pull request).
