Gitgo began as an experiment: how would programming today be different if Git had been written in Go instead of C?
The result: an implementation of Git that is compatible with existing Git repositories, but simpler, more portable, and fast enough to be used as a general-purpose data store. With Gitgo, Git is no longer just for managing source control. Go makes Git a practical choice for content distribution, distributed build systems, establishing consensus, and more.
