Yeah that's my main concern with it too. I've resolved a lot of the problems I had, but I still need to learn more, and meanwhile I could have spent - and could spend - my time working on the actual program instead of these types of things that don't matter much to me.taconaut wrote:I've now spent about 10h to get a basic understanding of git and maven with the help of the people here; I think this is quite a lot of time that could have been used to do something else. Is everyone willing to take that time?
Plus I think it's nice how in SVN you can just refer to your revision number and it's all sequential, it's a user-friendly system, whereas with Git you have to refer to these alphanumeric combinations that don't mean anything at a glance. Sure Git is "better" for people who care about that kind of thing but what about people who just care about making a good program? There will always be the "better" and newer thing to use but what matters is your code, not the programs you use around your code, in my opinion.
Another plus in the SVN column is its integration with Google Code. I think it's really user-friendly and developer-friendly to have it all on Google Code like it currently is and to split it by still using Google Code for issue tracking but using GitHub for the code doesn't seem like a good idea to me.
