excellent GIT video

Subversion devs: there's a fabulous video up on youtube now, where
Randal Schwartz (famous perl hacker) gives a tech-talk about GIT:


No, this isn't entirely off-topic. A number of us have discussed
"stealing" various features from distributed version control systems,
and this talk is really something worth digesting. Unlike the awful
GIT talk given by Linus Torvalds earlier this year (where he spent
lots of time cursing subversion and insulting his audience), this talk
is all technical... no political agenda. Randal explains the
architecture of the system, why it's cool, and how one uses it. It's
a fascinating talk. (Well, fascinating to people who think about
version control, I guess!)

I know that everyone is focused on finishing svn 1.5 -- I just wanted
to share this link with the community so that if you *do* find an hour
of free time, you have something worthwhile to watch and think about.
Put it on your iPod or something, watch it on the train. :-)
