Same goes for code browsing activities as well – Run git gc and list your branches online within milliseconds instead of seconds again. If Git garbage collection has so many benefits, …

What makes things tricky is that any SCM solution on the planet claims to have proper, powerful, “military grade”, “bulletproof” access controls in place. Looking at the specifics, there are huge differences that can give you a competitive business advantage (or disadvantage). A framework that helps you to visualize the differences in the fine print is a way better approach to …
