Git is a popular version control system designed to handle very large projects with speed and efficiency; it is used mainly for various open source projects, most notably the Linux kernel, xorg, OLPC, Wine, Samba, swfdec and many others.

Git falls in the category of distributed source code management tools, similar to e.g. GNU Arch or Monotone (or Bitkeeper in the proprietary world). Every Git working directory is a full-fledged repository with full revision tracking capabilities, not dependent on network access or a central server.
