I'm trying to put together a project to document the systems provided by Quicklisp. git is the popular SCM solution and of course quicklisp itself is hosted on github.

Gorram git on Windows. The GUI is dysfunctional and unexplorable. The two-step commits (if I asked you to commit, go find what I changed and commit it!!). The requirements to have a SSH key on github. The installation of a *custom* git shell.

This is not sane in a modern environment. The driving principle of many- most?- high-quality interface designs is "Simplicity on the outside, complexity comes as you dig deeper". git just fails. Hard.

I'm going to keep using it for this project, because it's rude to ask people to use Mercurial/bitbucket (the better solution), when they've already invested time and energy into github for Quicklisp.
