Thanks Keith. Yes, we are currently in Beta with a January release. NSGit (=
http://www.nexbridge.com/products/host-nonstop/nsgit/) is a GUARDIAN-aware =
front-end component for Git that allows you to use Git commands from within=
TACL. It knows about ENSCRIBE files and can manage code 101 and 180 files,=
object files, DDL dictionaries, structured files, and POBJ (each program i=
nside is separately versionable. The product also supports name mapping, so=
you can have the same file as src.h in OSS/NSDEE and srch in GUARDIAN, wit=
h identical commit ids.=20
Because we have full integration with Git, you can manage your GUARDIAN cod=
e with a git clone in a GUI like SourceTree or Gitk. The GUARDIAN side is j=
ust another repository clone with a separate working index.
