ground-breaking news. It seems, emacs repo would move to git in the near future.
thanks to, the controversial head Eric S Raymond. See the thread here: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2014-01/msg00005.html
every time i dip into emacs dev list, it pains me to see the utter inefficiency and arguments there. Everybody argues. Argue, and argue, philosophy waxing, and argue, and you see one hundred weird utterly stupid wild ideas (excuse me) on everything, from dinosaurs of the 1980s insisting their ways, to clueless FSF fanatics who haven't wrote a single line of code but is gung-ho about emacs. In between is every cock who think only he knows how things should be, meanwhile, those who have written respected software or contributed tons of elisp, are treated just like nobody — a complete egalitarian dystopia.
emacs, sucks the weirdos of the world. Count me in.
On this, we must also thank John Wiegley, who daringly and humbly pushed for git 9 months ago. See http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2013-03/msg00776.html
