    Git is so inconsequently.

    'git branch' list branches.
    'git tag' lists tags.
    But 'git stash' stashes your changes, so if you want to list the stashes, then you do 'git stash list'.

    Git is very weird, unintuitive and difficult.

      I have one philisophical-ish question... do they use git to manage versions for git development?

        And svn is so much better. It has no branches or tags or stashes. Or revert. Or rebase.
        Yes, git has a (very) steep learning curve, but it's still the best VCS I've ever used.

          SVN has all of those things, except stashes. Don't spread disinformation about tools if you don't know how they work or what they provide.

            Oh really? What's the command to create a branch in svn? And what's the command to create a tag?

              Tags and branches do exist in SVN (google it), but GIT handles it a lot better IMHO.

                yes. This is a public mirror of the main development repo. https://github.com/git/git

                  I do not know about the command line part of SVN, but we use Tortoise SVN on Windows 10 at work for managing technical documentation written in DITA XML.
                  It does have branches and it does support reverting to previous versions, but it is clearly inferior to git.
                  Branches in SVN are a PITA, merging them seems like a nightmare, and conflict resolution is annoying and rudimentary at best, I think.

                  These are just some of the reasons why our company is going to switch over to github soon... even though SVN has the features, their implementation is inferior to git's.

                  I meant it as sort-of a joke, but I am not really surprised at the answer!

                    If you ever bother to look under TortoiseSVN (kids these days...), you'll be delighted to discover svn does not actually have branches and tags. It has copies.
