Parent article: The guts of git

  • The current head is obtained from the remote repository (using rsync) and compared with the local head. If the two are the same, no changes have been made and the job is done.
  • The remote object database is downloaded, again with rsync. This operation will add any new objects to the database.
... so what happens when Tridge pulls the free version of rsync? ;)

rsync is GPL. If Tridge stops distributing it, you can still use older versions.

Hmm, I thought the winking emoticon was sufficient. Next time I'll try to
be more explicit. Unfortunately, <joke> ... </joke> is rejected by the
comment editor if you post as HTML.

Hummm... if <joke> ... </joke> doesn't work, maybe &lt;joke&gt; ... &lt;/joke&gt; does ;-)

The original idea and initial implementation was by the same Tridge but he had to stop develop it.
