Travis has just announced that he’s working on a book about Git, the version control system created for the Linux kernel by Linus Torvalds. This is great news, as there currently isn’t anything else out there in dead-tree form to help folks get up and running with this incredibly powerful distributed version control system.

It’s predicted that workplaces will change over the next ten years, with more and more people telecommuting rather than working in the office. Distributed people mean distributed teams – something that the open source world is already very used to. Git was specifically designed to solve the version control problems that distributed teams maintaining multiple branches face, and it’s slowly but surely gaining popularity amongst folks who’ve found Subversion’s branching and merging too painful to do.
