How do you decide whether to use CVS or git?

WILLIAM n SUSIE ENGELKE

As someone new to working with Tomcat (8), I see that a lotof the introductory documentation suggests to use CVS (and in conjunction withant) for handling software revisions. However, I have read discussions aboutthe superiority of git for handling software revisions / commits, etc., andalso I wish to put my code where it will be publicly accessible, i.e., ongithub.

 

Will git work just as well as CVS for tomcat appdevelopment, or are there specific, important reasons why the Tomcatdocumentation consistently refers to CVS for this? Any thoughts?

Yes

Only that that section of the docs is out of date and badly in need of
an update.

If you wanted to provide a patch for the docs, that would be great.
