Git Credential Manager for Mac and Linux now Open Sourced

Microsoft recently announced the open-source release of the Git Credential Manager for Mac and Linux. This follows the release of the GCM for Windows. The tool was ported to Mac and Linux to simplify their authentication to remote Git repositories, in particular those hosted in Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS). The GCM is a Git credential helper that assists with multi-factor authentication. Compared to Git’s built-in credential storage (such as wincred for Windows), which provides single-factor authentication support for remote Git repositories, the GCM provides multi-factor authentication support for VSTS (and soon GitHub).

Gerrit 2.10 Code Review Tool released

Gerrit is a web based code review system, facilitating online code reviews for projects using the Git version control system. Gerrit makes reviews easier by showing changes in a side-by-side display, and allowing inline comments to be added by any reviewer. Gerrit simplifies Git based project maintainership by permitting any authorized user to submit changes to the master Git repository, rather than requiring all approved changes to be merged in by hand by the project maintainer.
