Very rarely do I find a tool that doesn't have some issue I have to workaround (even minor). Even more rarely do I find a tool that continues to impress me beyond what I thought I needed.

Git is such a tool.

So what are those things that impressed you with Git lately?

Will jboss consider using Git in future?

Have you tried Mercurial and compared it with Git?

Git continues to give me pleasant surprises - I have to yet to find anything that I dislike!

It adapts to pretty much any workflow, and the various operations behave how I intuitively expect them to. It also is insanely fast and bundles by default a huge amount of supporting features included (like rebase, bisect, patch formatting, etc)

A number of us have been using it for some time now, and a few projects have converted to it as the primary revisioning tool.

Yes I did play with it. I preferred Git's way of doing branches, and I didn't like how you had to load a bunch of extensions to get a complete feature set.

There are a number of things that we’re working on. We have GitHub:FI, which is installable inside your firewall. For large companies that don’t want to host their code on GitHub we’ve been working on that. We’ve been hiring some people to help us get that to be a better product. Basically one of my big goals for the last couple of months (and probably it will be through the next year) has been making GitHub work with other version control systems. Git is very nice as a tool because it has a very simple storage mechanism and so it’s very generally applicable.

Interesting read/viewing.

enjoy.

Personally, that's my favorite part of Mercurial. I like not being bogged down by a number of assumed features.
