history

How Git keeps track of content history -- a visual approach.

Because the Git version control system takes a rather novel approach to how it stores history, I thought I'd write a very quick-and-dirty explanation of that. Once new users understand how this works, a great deal about Git suddenly becomes a lot clearer. So let's see how well this works out. (I'm still touching up this post, so if you see a typo, leave a comment. Or just leave a comment, anyway. And, yes, I can see Drupal is doing silly things with overly long lines; I'm working on that.)
