Tue Oct 9 11:41:15 CDT 2007
This Wednesday, October 10 (tomorrow), we will have our SLUUG general
meeting at Graybar, starting at 6:30 PM. Directions are available at
The feature presentation will be an Introduction to Distributed Source
Control, by Kyle Cordes.
Kyle will introduce us to several of the new distributed source control
tools, including Git, Bazaar (bzr), and Mercurial (hg). Git was
developed by Linus Torvalds to help Linux kernel development, while
Bazaar is used by the Ubuntu developers. We'll discuss the advantages
(and disadvantages) of distributed source control over centralized
systems such as Subversion (svn) or CVS. Then we'll cover some of the
differences between these tools (and a few others), with thoughts on how
to choose between them.
Kyle has blogged on the topic a few times:

Kyle’s presentation will begin at about 7:30. At 6:30, we’ve got a more
introductory topic: SmartMon Tools (Monitoring Hard Drive Health) by
Carl Fitch. Between the 2 presentations, we’ll have announcements, some
Q&A, and some time to get up and socialize.
We hope to see you there.
