> Well, two years ago Fabio and I agreed to call the thing Git Browser because Git is something the students recognize, while Squot is not. Moreover, the action labels in the Git browser use Git vocabulary, while the Squot protocols use one that is more like ENVY's and Monticello's (e. g., checkout vs. load, commit vs. save, commits vs. versions). The Squit package is the glue between Squot and FileSystem-Git, and the browser is in the Squit package at this time. That's why the class is called SquitBrowser, even though its label says something different.
