Very nice. I read them all … a bit like I would read Science Fiction  
though. But it made me even think of going 10.5 … for a whole 5 seconds.

One thing that struck me as really nice is backward compatibility  
with subversion (git-svn) so I might start with subversion. But what  
I really liked was the idea of local commits.

So, who is going to place a nice interface in TeXShop?

Grateful … and hopeful regards
