Recommend git over ssh direct to, instead of going over rsync to public machines, since this is meant to be a procedure for kernel subsystem maintainers. Also fix an obvious typo. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2005-09-22Retire rev-tree.Junio C Hamano

I would eventually like to move this to become a part of the tutorial, but anyway, this was an excellent post that describes how topic branches can be used to keep track of local changes.
