I am a lazy developer.
Could we have a file upload field on our project page on drupal.org, where we can upload a zip file and that would take care of all the committing the code to the project? :D
I am pretty sure a large percentage of the projects on Drupal are one man shows, and I believe it would be sufficient for a lot of devs. :) In the backend of course there still would be git...
Would be sweet.
Git, CVS, ssh, drush is all great stuff. But sometimes I just wish I wouldn't have to care. :P
Building a Drupal project using git is different than building Drupal itself, and requires its own workflow. I've been kicking ideas back and forth with Sam Boyer lately about how to make this process take advantage of all the Git power, but also be newbie-safe and as frictionless as possible. I think what we've come up with is pretty good: there's even code written! The process I am going to explain allows the following:
- Git-based updates for Drupal core and contrib
- The ability to patch/tweak core/contrib without the complexity of vendor-branches
- Portability for local development or Git-based deployment
- Unrestrained custom development: feature branches, tags, multiple repos
- Safe patterns that minimize conflicts and provide a clear resolution process
Pretty cool, eh? Expect a larger manifesto post from Sam in the near future, but for now here's where we are heading.Read more
At Woven, we're working on fun, challenging projects including a high profile online community with a tight timetable. I'm looking for one or more Drupal themers to join our growing distributed team immediately. This is a telecommute position, great if you've got a killer development environment at home, solid communication skills, and you manage your time well. I am based in Miami (formerly Manhattan), but our team members hail from multiple countries. You can live anywhere, so long as you're available EST days.Read more
In case you missed it, Randy Fay (rfay), posted that there will be live training & support sessions for Git. Are you a maintainer that hasn't gotten on the Git bandwagon yet? Are you curious about why Git rocks? Then these live training sessions are for you. Please note that I simply noticed his post & wanted to share w/the LA Drupal community in case others have missed it (the 1st one is next week).
More good news! They're using Webex for the live stream which means there's the usual support for Windows & Mac but ALSO Linux support & even Solaris!Read more

Aegir migrated away from Drupal.org more than a year ago because it needed git magic to do proper maintenance of its code (but also wanted to merge the modules in the install profile to simplify maintenance). Now that Drupal.org is migrating to git (yaaaay! thank you!), we're reconsidering that decision, and have opened the discussions on our forum to see if that would be a good idea: http://community.aegirproject.org/node/369
My main questions to you guys are those two:Read more
The Great Git Migration now has a logo, a gitified Druplicon.
This is @DrupalGitGremln 's icon on twitter.
(Organizers of this group: can you set an icon for a group? If so, this we be good.)
Now that Drupal is making the move to Git, I imagine lots of Drupal shops will be too. Ours is definitely among them.Read more
