I kinda followed the last few weeks via your svn repository (which was not
helped by the commits being a complete mix of the individual projects).
I was a bit disappointed that nobody asked things on the Git mailing list;
quite a number of very important lessons were learnt during the first
implementation of jgit, and you guys could have benefitted tremendously by
By the time I got aware of your effort, it was too late; for example, the
code already relied on the fact that every blob's contents were read into
memory at once (IIU the code correctly).
Note: personally, I do not like C# all that much, so I am not that
interested in the port myself. However, we get quite a number of
questions in that direction ("do you support .NET yet?"), so I am quite
interested to know what's available.
May I suggest respectfully, that the next time communication channels
between the Mono-mentor and at least one knowledgable Git guy are
established early in the project? IIRC there was a GSoC project to
reimplement Git in C# last year, too, which failed, too.
