What's the svn revert equivalent in git?

Should you comment changes in code and in the changelog?

I have notice a trend for developers to comment their changes less with the justification that the purpose/date/reason is in the changelog.

Which version control system or platform is the best one for tracking and distributing personal Emacs configurations?

I currently use subversion to track my configuration changes of Emacs and to sync my ‘.emacs.d’ directory to different platforms.

But other packages which I’m also using are not part of those distributions […]

What are some of the best SCM practices?

I have been using Git for some time now to manage my own personal projects. I didn’t really think about how I used it.
