Anyone install both? Using each for separate projects obviously. Shouldn’t be a problem, I’m guessing, but hoping to fish out any gotchas. Furthermore, anyone use Tortoise Git, Subversion and Mercurial on the same machine? Edit: Forgot to mention, this is for Windows 7.

Git On Windows Without Cygwin?

Are there any native Git implementations for Windows that do not require Cygwin? I’ve become a fan of the TortoiseSVN client, and would really like to see a similar Git client for Windows. Edit: I am also considering Mercurial, but would prefer to check out a few before I make a decision.

Backing up source files managed by source control software: TortoiseSVN

I am new to source control and I am confused with something I read on a webpage yesterday (I don’t have the link).

Using TortoiseSVN, I need to take changes I’ve done in a branch and then merge them with Trunk. I am the only developer on this project, so I know trunk hasn’t changed. I am learning SVN so that eventually my team can use it. Basically, I want my trunk to look exactly like the branch. […]

Is there a way when creating new SVN repositories for the client (tortoisesvn) to create the branches, tags and trunk folders automaticlly?

I’m using tortoisesvn to create the repositories and wondered if there was a way it could automatically create a skeleton directory structure within the repository?

SVN commit doesn't complete

When I commit files in svn I often get the situation where after it has transmitted all the files svn will hang and then eventually time out with the error svn: E175012: Connection timed out. This seems to happen when I am uploading more than say 20 files. I believe this is happening after all […]
