+"Towards Contributors Heaven: from CVS and SVN to EGit/JGit"
+Standard Talk (25 mins)
+Making at Eclipse
+Tags: Tools Committer Contributor Emerging Technology
+Git is a distributed SCM, which means every developer has a full local clone 
+of the complete history of every revision of the code allowing for independence and
+unparalleled speed compared to other central SCMs. Through intelligent branching and
+merging functionality combined with a highly optimized transport protocol distributed 
+development can become much more efficient. 
+Especially contributors who don't have direct write access to the code of Open
+Source projects may largely benefit from the distributed nature of Git.
+This explains the high interest of the Eclipse community to move from CVS and SVN
+towards Git in order to ease the life of contributors and this way make the
+community more successful.
+The EGit project is implementing Eclipse tooling on top of JGit, the Java 
+implementation of Git. EGit and JGit moved to Eclipse in May 2009 and plan
+to ship their next release with Helios. 
+This talk will give an update of the project progress and more detailed information 
+about the design and features. A demo will illustrate how it's used in the development 
+process. It will also show how Gerrit, a JGit based Review system developed for the
+needs of the Android community can help to further improve the development process.
