Git, here we come

I just uploaded a patch to the git plugin for trac that allows existing wiki links that point to SVN changesets to keep working after the conversions.

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...

Btw, this book is a very good intro to git. This video is great too.
Also, my boss found this post by Joel Spolsky about distributed version control convincing.

BTW, the TeamCity upgrade wasn't as painless as I would have liked:
