Re: [DISCUSS] Git as primary source control for Flume
Does the review tool integrate with git?  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).
