The maintainer also mentions how stability mechanisms of the 'master' branch and the maintenance releases work.

Welcome to Google+ Git Community.

Unlike the Google+ Git "Page", which is meant for one-way announcements from Git developers and evangelists to Git users, the "Community" is meant to be a place for Git users to meet other Git users and discuss all things around Git.

I just created "Help Me" and "Stories (success or horror)" subcategories. Other general discussions can go to the default "Discussion" subcategory, for now; we may add more subcategories as necessary.

Enjoy.

What is an "-rc0"?

It is "a more or less feature complete preview of the upcoming release". There may still be a couple to several topics cooking on the 'next' branch that are to be merged before the real feature freeze ("-rc1"), but they are relatively minor that lacking them is not expected to change the overall end user experience too much from the final release.

And the 1.8.0-rc0 is such a preview. I am planning to merge two small features and two fixes later this week when I tag 1.8.0-rc1, but other than these four topics, what has been tagged today is more or less a good preview for the final release (modulo bugs and regressions that will be fixed, if any, before the real thing).

That means that it is very important for the users to test and find regressions in this preview. If you are using Git, please take some time and do your part to help the upcoming release as polished as we could.

Thanks.

The Git User's Survey 2012 is now up!
[Git is an open source distributed version control system]

Please devote a few minutes of your time to fill out the simple questionnaire; it'll help the Git community understand your needs, what you like about Git (and what you don't), and overall help us improve it.

The survey would be open from 26 September till 15 October 2012

The results will be published to the Git Wiki on the GitSurvey2012 page and discussed on the git mailing list, which will be also announced here.

I (+Junio C Hamano) was told that, unlike a "+Page", "Community" is not meant for announcements from more central people to participants, but is meant as a place for members to interact with each other, exchanging ideas, sharing stories, ...

So there.

The upcoming release consists of a finely balanced mix of bug-fixes, usability enhancements and surprising new features.

The final 1.8.0 is scheduled to be tagged on October 21st, 2012, and I'll disappear for a couple of weeks after that, so please help us find the last minute regressions and fix them, if any, in the coming two weeks.

Thanks.

Will the official Windows version be (as usual) several revisions past the latest one? That's OK - but only till there are no notable incompatilities or differences in the behaviour.

Git Development Community, aka "Git, present and future, straight out of horse's mouth"
Introduction
Git is a fast distributed source code management system, and here is a place to learn about its development, first-hand from those who develop Git and those who develop tools that support the wider Git ecosystem. 

This Google+ page was created by Gitster, but co-maintained by a few core Git developers (volunteering is very much appreciated; if you are a core Git developer and not a co-maintainer yet, please nudge us).

Please mention +Git when you see a noteworthy post by those who develop Git and tools that support the wider Git ecosystem, and we'll try to reshare it.
