Setting up git
- How to set up a local git repository as a committer
- How to import from Eclipse CVS
- Any additional notes to that?
- Important Commandline Commands to push etc
- Something along the lines of Ketan's blog for Mercurial
- Known Issues and Gotchas
- Initially pulling from CVS into a repo puts HEAVY load on the Eclipse CVS server ... better clone an existing git repo if available (Can be used as a a form of a torrent, it is possible to pull from someone else I know, and sync with eclipse servers, they're all the same repositories after all)
