An interesting read for git beginners and Subversion users

Here is a good tutorial about the basics of git and git-svn, especially aimed at SVN and SVK users: An introduction to git-svn for Subversion/SVK users and deserters, by Sam Vilain. It’s really worth reading if you’re interested in improving your workflow in Subversion- driven projects (like Gnome) and want to improve your workflow using git, or are just interested in how it works.

My own post on that subject is a bit outdated since git 1.5, but it is still effective if your distro doesn’t ship that new version yet (as it is the case for Ubuntu Feisty).
