Damn, why is it either PSIG or CLUG that falls on milestone weeks?

Oh, wait, I know exactly why. But that's not really relevant.

Since we use Subversion at work, but I've started using git-svn last
week (after seeing Linus' talk, and reading the git-svn quickstart for
svn users [1] as well as having been tracking upstream xrandr1.2 code
for Xorg's ati driver) at least for the server-side work, since git on
Windows sucks, and some elements of our environment mean that it's not
that good for what we do on Windows anyway (yet).

Maybe I can give a talk on those at PSIG next week... (Both git for
people who like bleeding-edge Xorg, and git-svn for the quiet
revolutionaries) although, I dunno how long I can stretch that out to.
And of course, a pushable SVN repo will be needed... I hope Paul's test
one is still around next month. ^_^

BTW, I'm a little alarmed that Python SIG hijacked the PSIG monicker...
Or was it PSIG first, and I've just never noticed?

Of course Pacman didn't influence us as kids. If it did,
we'd be running around in darkened rooms, popping pills and
listening to repetitive music.
