[scl.org] Announcing release for Git 1.9 on CentOS Linux 6 and 7 x86_64 SCL



I am pleased to announce the immediate availability of Git 1.9 on CentOS Linux 6 and 7 x86_64, delivered via a Software Collection (SCL) built by the SCLo Special Interest Group (https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/SCLo).

QuickStart
----------
You can get started in three easy steps:
  $ sudo yum install centos-release-scl
  $ sudo yum install git19
  $ scl enable git19 bash

At this point you should be able to use git just as a normal application. Examples of commands run might be:
  $ git clone https://github.com/openshift/mysql.git
  $ git commit -m "Initial commit"

In order to view the individual components included in this collection, including additional conversion tools, you can run:
  $ sudo yum list git19\*

About Software Collections
--------------------------
Software Collections give you the power to build, install, and use multiple versions of software on the same system, without affecting system-wide installed packages. Each collection is delivered as a group of RPMs, with the grouping being done using the name of the collection as a prefix of all packages that are part of the software collection.

The collection git19 delivers version 1.9 of the git, fast, scalable and distributed revision control system, plus additional conversion tools and plugins also available as RPMs.

For more on the Git, see https://git-scm.com.

The SCLo SIG in CentOS
----------------------
The Software Collections SIG group is an open community group co-ordinating the development of the SCL technology, and helping curate a reference set of collections. In addition to the Git collection being released here, we also build and deliver databases, web servers, and language stacks including multiple versions of PostgreSQL, MariaDB, Apache HTTP Server, NodeJS, Ruby, Python and others.

Software Collections SIG release was announced at https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-announce/2015-October/021446.html

You can learn more about Software Collections concepts at: http://softwarecollections.org You can find information on the SIG at https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/SCLo ; this includes howto get involved and help with the effort.

We meet every second Wednesday at 16:00 UTC in #centos-devel (ref: https://www.centos.org/community/calendar), for an informal open forum open to anyone who might have comments, concerns or wants to get started with SCL's in CentOS.

Enjoy!
