Ease of publishing branches Git 5 Monotone 0:
With git, I push and transfer the number of bytes that I have changed
to the server. So a small change is a small upload.
With mtn (0.37 here) in contrast it wants to upload every revision to the
server. I'm on a GPRS/UMTS/CDMA line and after ~48MB of upload I got
disconnected, twice. The revs still reside on my disk only, I'm not able
to share it. The database is locked during this operation, I can not do
diffs, commits, checkouts during this time.
Publishing means uploading what we have created, which is a lot bigger than
just my small change.
