For example, you can work independently on a branch called Branches in Git are local to the repository.
A branch created in a local repository does not need to have a counterpart in a remote repository.
In a distributed version control system each user has a complete local copy of a repository on his individual computer. This copying process is typically called Every repository can exchange versions of the files with other repositories by transporting these changes.
This is typically done via a repository running on a server which is, unlike the local machine of a developer, always online.
Git originates from the Linux kernel development and was founded in 2005 by Linus Torvalds.
Nowadays it is used by many popular open source projects, e.g., the Android or the Eclipse developer teams, as well as many commercial organizations.
A developer can copy (checkout) a certain version from the central sever onto their individual computer.
You can create a new branch from an existing one and change the code independently from other branches.Each version captures a snapshot of the files at a certain point in time and the VCS allows you to switch between these versions.These versions are stored in a specific place, typically called a You may, for example, revert the collection of files to a state from 2 days ago.This tutorial explains the usage of the distributed version control system Git via the command line.The examples were done on Linux (Ubuntu), but should also work on other operating systems like Microsoft Windows.
Typically, there is a central server for keeping a repository but each cloned repository is a full copy of this repository.
