It's the first time in a long while that I've been able to contribute code to an open source project - so I'm very happy with myself. (I have been able to open some bugs for IronPython, but that's about it)
The patch itself is trivial, but it was fun learning to work with trac plugins and in the process learning more about setuptools and some basic linux skills (I really am clueless there).
Also got our TeamCity working with git, and it was almost painless.
Just a few more kinks to figure out and we'll be able to finally switch...
Also, my boss found this post by Joel Spolsky about distributed version control convincing.
