Installing and using egit, the eclipse git plugin

I use the latest PDT version of eclipse (Helios) as my IDE of choice, and have used the built-in cvs and add-on svn-kit plugins for version control for many years. When I first started using git, I guess I didn't think there was a git plug-in for eclipse or that the ones I saw just weren't stable enough, so I just went to the command line to do the git work then back to eclipse to continue coding. Now that Drupal has moved their whole repository from cvs to git, I thought it might be time to add the e-git plug-in to eclipse so that I don't have to leave eclipse to get git work done.


Installing Git on a CentOS 5.5 server

A lot of people are realizing the benefits of using a distributed version control system such as Git over Svn or Cvs. I won't be discussing the pros and cons, just how I got it installed on a CentOS 5.5 server. If you'd like to install git on a laptop/desktop I suggest you follow the instructions for that at github, this link will redirect to the appropriate OS it detects that you are using, COOL! That page also has many very useful git links in the sidebar.
