Git gained another feather in its cap today: Perl now uses Git for version control. Some guy here in New Zealand spent a year building custom tools to merge everything he could find and produced the first ever unified repository of Perl's 21 year history. And as I understand it, this is the point from where Perl will continue its development.
The very first "commit":
commit 8d063cd8450e59ea1c611a2f4f5a21059a2804f1 Author: Larry Wall <email@example.com> Date: Fri Dec 18 00:00:00 1987 +0000 a "replacement" for awk and sed [ Perl is kind of designed to make awk and sed semi-obsolete. This posting will include the first 10 patches after the main source. The following description is lifted from Larry's manpage. --r$ ]
I don't see Perl on GitHub yet, but I imagine it's only a matter of time before somebody pushes it up there.
