Should bower_components be publicly accessible to get the benefit of sourcemaps?

I use Bower to manage dependencies in the form of Sass and JavaScript libraries. In almost all cases I reference these libraries directly from my Sass, CoffeeScript and JavaScript. My build process concatenates and compresses the resultant assets. These combined stylesheets and JavaScripts also have sourcemaps. With the Bower-managed libraries coming straight from the bower_components […]

Confused by git filter-branch

I need to analyse what exactly happened to a some files in a given directory during the whole history and using things like git log the_directory is not good enough.

How to git version control multiple projects with one framework project?
