This month we'll be hearing about using GIT to track configuration files from member Anas Mughal. Here's what Anas has to say...
With over 18 years of software development experience, I have used many version control systems: Subversion, CVS, PVCS, VSS, SCCS, SVN, and GIT. Each tool improved over the limitations of an earlier tool. In contract to the earlier tools, GIT is a distributed version control system that requires no central server. Its distributed nature is very appealing to track changes and modifications to any set of files on any operating system.
In this session, high level concepts of GIT will be presented. Then, I will show why GIT is well suited to track system and configuration files. Some demonstrations will be conducted to show simple steps to track changes to configuration files using GIT.
