Due to recent discussion on OpenEmbedded mailing list I decided to give GIT second chance (first one was few months ago).
I imported Poky using
git-svn tool and started hacking. First work was switching to OPKG (described in other post). I created branch for it and changed bit after bit — result was patchset with 17 patches. I pushed them into official Subversion repository in a bit other order and as few less revisions. After that I dropped branch as not needed any more.
Next was creating few branches for local hacks. Merging branches is easy when there are no conflicts and require manual calling of
git mergetool FILE (instead of that being called automatically). Cherry picker works very nice and “rebasing” branches recognize such revisions.
Nasty thing is that every change has to be committed before switching branches as there is only one “working copy” at time (not like in CVS, Subversion or Monotone where you need “working copy” per branch).
What do I feel about GIT now? I started to like it.
