One reason that I was particularly interested in Git is for its potential use as a local repository with complete history without the need to run a server. This appealed to me since I could work on pet projects without cluttering up work branches on our subversion servers or going through the hassle of setting up and maintaining my personal Subversion server. This is a basic “How to” article. My intent is to get started with using Git in a practical manner. I do not explain how Git works or how it differs from traditional server-centric version control systems such as Subversion.
