git this: fossil rocks

I'll keep this short.

For me version control is just zipping up files after I make a change and then versioning the ZIP files via filename.

But I probably should look into version control of some sort. But I want something easy to learn.

Git seems all the rage these days, but honestly I'd have to read the documentation a few times to learn it properly … and that ain't happening. Also, it's more than I need given that what I'll be working on are very small projects.

But I really think Fossil is very promising. It's super easy to learn and the built in web interface – replete with a Wiki and ticketing system – is pretty sweet.

I'll still be zipping up my files, but I think they'll probably be making their way into Fossil repositories from now on, too.

… and as for the blog title, it's a bit of a play on words of course. Did you "Git" it? Do you "dig" Fossil like I do?
