Subject Re: [Discussion] Switch to Git?
Date Thu, 14 Sep 2017 12:59:57 GMT
I know Git is the repository-of-the-decade, and therefore a switch to it 
is probably inevitable, just like the switch from RCS to SCCS and from 
SCCS to Subversion.

Just as a matter of curiosity, which IDE's do not support Subversion? I 
know I was using a it with Eclipse before I heard of Git.
