Re: [DISCUSS] Git as primary source control for Flume
If it isn't obvious, I'm also in favor of this.  I think it has the potential to make the RTC process much better.

In fact, if we use git, we don't need to select the base folder etc(as we do for an svn patch), simply uploading the patch is enough.

By that I mean will patches still need to be added to the review tool or is it capable of figuring out the differences on its own if the enhancement/fix is on a "branch" (or fork or whatever it is that git calls it). If so, this would make RTC much more user friendly.

I have been using git svn for commits and git to maintain my repo, but recently there have been issues with the git-svn sync (earlier git mirror had substantial delays - but now it looks like it is missing commits).
