Git is a free & open source, distributed version control system  designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.

Every Git clone is a full-fledged repository with complete history and full revision tracking capabilities, not dependent on network access or a central server. Branching and merging are fast and easy to do.


Linus Torvalds has quipped about the name “git”, which is British English slang for a stupid or unpleasant person. “I’m an egotistical bastard, and I name all my projects after myself. First Linux, now git.

The official Git wiki also gives a number of alternative explanations and backronyms for the name, including “Global Information Tracker”
