Git# - First Public Release

by Miguel de Icaza

Meinrad Recheis has lead the effort to bring a full managed GIT implementation to the .NET and Mono worlds and he just announced the release of GitSharp 0.1.3, the first public release of Git#.

The code is based on the original work from Kevin Thompson who ported the JGit Eclipse plugin to C#. Meinrad has put together a great community of contributors that integrated every JGit improvement, the credits for the first release are as follows:

  • Dave Cameron: for fixing bugs
  • Bj√∂rn Carlson: for killing bugs that crept into the core
  • caytchen: for porting huge parts of the transport layer, and hunting down nasty bugs. btw, what's your real name?
  • Emeric Fermas: for eliminating some of the hardest to find bugs and for verifying the complete test suite against jgit
  • Martinho Fernandes: for fixing bugs
  • Andriano Machado: for porting massive amounts of code and tests, also fixing many bugs
  • Jim Radford: for the continuous integration server account and the support
  • Gil Ran: for porting and fixing lots of tests and initial efforts on Mono
  • Dan Rigby: for porting and fixing tests
  • rolenun: for the command line interface framework. hey, what is your real name?
