	git pull
	git commit -am
	git push


>>> Since it is quite a hassle each time to merge the svn history to the git repos, which I think is a bit of useless repetitive work which could be avoided.
>>> I think it would be nice if you could switch to git as well, actually there is not much difference to svn, and with some nice macros you can make behave almost the same...
>> It's a hastle for me to change.

>> Surely you can set-up some script that pings the Cog branch every ten minutes and does the replication to got automatically.
> Well merging does not work fully automated, so there is some human interaction involved.
> And SVN is not really about collaboration, which is not so nice.
>> I don't want to change all my process just yet.

> You should get the basics in 5mins, most of the rest can be solved with compatibility configurations (which I will provide ;) free of charge), and the rest just works more stable than svn.
> So would be a cool step towards a more community based VM IMO.
