Migrate the source code control to Git


With the great Git native support in Visual Studio 2013, Git would be the ideal SCC for .NET developpers.

Project has now been moved over to GitHub (and hence also been migrated to Git).

I don't agree with this - in fact it would make more sense to use the free Team Foundation Service which has recently become an immense Source Control platform.

Team Foundation Service can use Git as SCC.

True, however it is much more consistent to use native windows apps and semantics for windows development. It will save tons of time.

Git is a native windows apps with Visual Studio 2013.

At the moment we don't see the benefits of moving the source control to Git at this point in time. This may because us working on the project don't have enough experience with Git, but that may be another reason not to perform the change.

If you are of another opinion, feel free to write your comments here and vote for this work item. But as of today we are not considering this change since we are happy with how TFS works for us.

I am running some projects on CodePlex and I am quite happy with the platform.

Can you give more details about the advantages of Git compared to CodePlex?

Cyber_Sinh wrote Dec 10, 2014 at 9:42 AM

Only project members can connect to the project using TFS, non-members may use Subversion to access the repository.

But Subversion is not officialy supported in Visual Studio, so it is not user-friendly to checkout the latest version of source code. Git has a great native support in Visual Studio.

Don't confuse platform (Codeplex, Github) and SCC (Subversion, Git) -> you can use Git with Codeplex and TFS.

We will re-evaluate this request after the release of 1.6.
