in thread Unrelated scripts and version control

Just running git init to create a local repository is obviously not such a big deal. However, if I want to collaborate with my colleagues, I have to set up a corresponding bare repository on a server that I can then push to. Doing this for a couple of dozen individual scripts seems like it might be unmanagable overkill.

Regarding the history, I do want this for individual files and I don't have such things as "finished" projects. I mainly have stuff for myself, which either contains bugs or is not as good as it could be, or both.

Perhaps I just need to try working with a small number of repositories and see how it feels. I gather that can always merge them at some later point.

Cheers,

loris

    As I said, I didn't experience an overhead. In SVN, you normally need one step to prepare the directory for SVN import (e.g. the trunk/ branch/ merge directory structure) which somehow would correspond to git init. To publish it, svn import would correspond to git clone -bare.

    Your couple of dozen scripts are all unrelated? So there is no group of scripts your colleagues would likely want to fetch together?

    What I meant with my history comment was, I also used to have a single big SVN repository for almost everything. My SVN dump was huge at the end. But for most projects, I never actually needed the history later on. Now I have a decent backup system and git when version control is actually needed (collaboration, branching etc.). So much cleaner and better...
