Whenever a student or colleague asks me about getting started with git, I look up a set of resources I found quite enlightening and / or useful and give them a bunch of links, often with a hand-crafted description of each. To repeat myself less often in the future, I’m now using the power of a blog post that consolidates that material.
When pulling in the latest changes from the Cappuccino repository, I often ask myself what changed, that is, in which places I can expect improvements or differences. I found it therefore favorable to have git show me just that. After some searching, it turns out this is quite easy.
