After controversy, Torvalds begins work on "git"

A dispute between a prominent open-source developer and the maker of the software used to manage Linux kernel development has forced Linux creator Linus Torvalds to embark on a new software project of his own, in addition to the Linux kernel. The new effort, called "git," was started last week after a licensing dispute forced Torvalds to abandon the proprietary BitKeeper software he had been using to manage Linux kernel development since 2002.
