Git has come.

Today I added Git (the fast version control system) to our server so that I should be able to keep track of code changes.  This involved a few days of research and a ton of trial and error.   The best resource I could find would be joemaller.com.  His site had exactly what I needed.  I was getting a error code (once I was given asses to the compiler via ssh)  curl-config file not found once I followed the tutorial and changed my base $PATH to include the /opt/ directory I was golden.  In case you wanted to know:

Git is...

Git is a free & open source, distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.

Every Git clone is a full-fledged repository with complete history and full revision tracking capabilities, not dependent on network access or a central server.Branching and merging are fast and easy to do.

Git is used for version control of files, much like tools such as MercurialBazaarSubversionCVSPerforce, andVisual SourceSafe.
