I'm actually a bit of a tool geek, but I tend to 'mute' those
discussions because if I joined in I'd never escape. FWIW I develop
off line using git-svn. Git wasn't my first choice of version control
system, but none of the others had good enough subversion integration.
I think others have explained the problems with using git for boost,
and unless they're addressed I don't think it's viable.
Anyway, git is old hat, we should use fossil.
