+A short git tools survey
+========================
+
+
+Introduction
+------------
+
+Apart from git contrib/ area there are some others third-party tools
+you may want to look.
+
+This document presents a brief summary of each tool and the corresponding
+link.
+
+
+Alternative/Augmentative Procelains
+-----------------------------------
+
+ - *Cogito* (http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/cogito/)
+
+ Cogito is a version control system layered on top of the git tree history
+ storage system. It aims at seamless user interface and ease of use,
+ providing generally smoother user experience than the "raw" Core GIT
+ itself and indeed many other version control systems.
+
+
+ - *pg* (http://www.spearce.org/category/projects/scm/pg/)
+
+ pg is a shell script wrapper around GIT to help the user manage a set of
+ patches to files. pg is somewhat like quilt or StGIT, but it does have a
+ slightly different feature set.
+
+
+ - *StGit* (http://www.procode.org/stgit/)
+
+ Stacked GIT provides a quilt-like patch management functionality in the
+ GIT environment. You can easily manage your patches in the scope of GIT
+ until they get merged upstream.
+
+
+History Viewers
+---------------
+
+ - *gitk* (shipped with git-core)
+
+ gitk is a simple TK GUI for browsing history of GIT repositories easily.
+
+
+ - *gitview* (contrib/)
+
+ gitview is a GTK based repository browser for git
+
+
+ - *gitweb* (ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/gitweb/)
+
+ GITweb provides full-fledged web interface for GIT repositories.
+
+
+ - *qgit* (http://digilander.libero.it/mcostalba/)
+
+ QGit is a git/StGIT GUI viewer built on Qt/C++. QGit could be used
+ to browse history and directory tree, view annotated files, commit
+ changes cherry picking single files or applying patches.
+ Currently it is the fastest and most feature rich among the git
+ viewers and commit tools.
+
+
+
+Foreign SCM interface
+---------------------
+
+ - *git-svn* (contrib/)
+
+ git-svn is a simple conduit for changesets between a single Subversion
+ branch and git.
+
+
+ - *quilt2git / git2quilt* (http://home-tj.org/wiki/index.php/Misc)
+
+ These utilities convert patch series in a quilt repository and commit
+ series in git back and forth.
+
+
+Others
+------
+
+ - *(h)gct* (http://www.cyd.liu.se/users/~freku045/gct/)
+
+ Commit Tool or (h)gct is a GUI enabled commit tool for git and
+ Mercurial (hg). It allows the user to view diffs, select which files
+ to committed (or ignored / reverted) write commit messages and
+ perform the commit itself.
+
+ - *git.el* (contrib/)
+
+ This is an Emacs interface for git. The user interface is modeled on
+ pcl-cvs. It has been developed on Emacs 21 and will probably need some
+ tweaking to work on XEmacs.
