I explained my preference in the last email. You can also find it in
the inbox as System-dtl.1059.

I'm quite interested in the topic of how best to use git with Squeak.
I see several different approaches in circulation now (in Cuis, in
Pharo, and the Squit/Squat tools), and it is not clear to me what is
best. Other people on the list have more experience with this than
I do, but it seems to be an evolving topic at this point.

I think that the Do menu entries are good enough for now. It's a
simple solution to a real problem, and they can be easily removed
when a better approach is established.
