<li><p>May 3, 2007 <a href=http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-2199332044603874737>Linus Torvalds on git</a> - Linus Torvalds (Linux, git).</p></li>

<p>ABSTRACT: When Linus looked for a replacement for BitKeeper, he wanted a
source control system that was distributed, performed well, and guaranteed
that data checked out exactly matches the data that was checked in.  To get
this, he had to write one.  Covers the horrors of CVS, and why Linus considers
SVN's slogan "CVS done right" to be a contradiction in terms.  Why a
distributed source control system is a better match for open source development
than a centralized one: "Distribution means nobody's special."  Forking is
natural, and a distributed SCM is a tool to easily merge forks back together.
You can work offline, developers don't block each other during development.
Branches have no namespace issues.  Every developer having their own branch and
can control what gets applied to that branch which eliminates issues of
security/trust/politics related to "commit access", and thus cutting a release
is something anyone can do.  The "network of trust" in merging and cutting
releases securely.  How git makes merging easy, and resolving conflicts.</p>

<p>ABSTRACT: Every open source project runs into people who are selfish,
uncooperative, and  disrespectful. These people can silently poison the
atmosphere of a happy developer community. Come learn how to identify these
people and peacefully de-fuse them before they derail your project. Told
through a series of (often amusing) real-life anecdotes and experiences.</p>

<p>ABSTRACT:
Time based releases are made according to a specific time interval, instead of
making a release when a particular functionality or set of features have been
implemented.  This talk argues that time based release management
acts as an effective coordination mechanism in large volunteer projects and
shows examples from seven projects that have moved to time based
releases: Debian, GCC, GNOME, Linux, OpenOffice, Plone, and X.org.</p>
