I've been playing around with Git in the past couple months, and have been really enjoying it. Paired with subversion, I get the best of all worlds — distributed source control when I want it (working on new features or trying out performance tuning), and non-distributed source control for my public commits.
Github suggests that
when working with remote repositories, you turn on the
autocrlf option, which
ensures that changes in line endings do not get accounted for when pushing to
and pulling from the remote repo. However, when working with
actually causes issues. After turning this option on, I started getting the
error "Delta source ended unexpectedly" from
git-svn. After a bunch of aimless
tinkering, I finally asked myself the questions, "When did this start
happening?" and, "Have I changed anything with Git lately?" Once I'd backed out
the config change, all started working again.
In summary: don't use
