GIT (Utility)

Due to scheduled power outages at multiple SHARCNET institutions, several clusters (angel, copper, guppy, mako, mosaic, orca, redfin and saw) as well as global /work will be unavailable starting 4 pm. Friday April 29 and will return to service no later than 1 pm. Monday May 2.
We will use this outage to perform some much needed maintenance on a number of critical systems.

Other clusters will remain up but any jobs that require access to /work will crash. Users should only submit jobs requiring access to /home and /scratch


Git is distributed version control system focused on speed, effectivity and real-world usability on large projects. Its highlights include: Distributed development, Strong support for non-linear development, Efficient handling of large projects, Cryptographic authentication of history and Toolkit design.
