Does Sourceforge Support Git?

On March 12, 2009 SourceForge announced free hosting for Git, Bazaar and Mercurial, three leading distributed source code management (SCM) systems. This service was made available immediately to all open source projects registered on SourceForge.net I like sourceforge’s mailing lists, but I like github’s pull requests and issue tracking.

Does Git change file permissions?

Yes it does. Don’t go working away, for instance, putting you /etc directory in git and then switching branches. Git may change your directories to 755 and your files to 644 which will cause the system problems with security, and may even prevent booting. look at etckeeper or this tutorial for more information about keeping /etc in a git repo, but the answer to “Does Git change file permissions?” is a definitive “Yes”
