34 <para>
35 <application>Git</application> is a free and open source, distributed
36 version control system designed to handle everything from small to very
37 large projects with speed and efficiency. Every
38 <application>Git</application> clone is a full-fledged repository with
39 complete history and full revision tracking capabilities, not dependent on
40 network access or a central server. Branching and merging are fast and easy
41 to do. <application>Git</application> is used for version control of files,
42 much like tools such as <application>Mercurial</application>,
43 <application>Bazaar</application>, <xref linkend="subversion"/>,
44 <xref linkend="cvs"/>, <application>Perforce</application>, and
45 <application>Team Foundation Server</application>.

252 it starts to decompress the docs. The <option>--no-same-owner</option>
253 option stops tar from preserving the user and group details of the
254 files. This is useful as that user or group may not exist on your
