Can Git run for commercial purposes?

+1 vote

I want to setup Git on our host. As Git is released under the GPLv2 open source license so is there any restriction to acquire a commercial license?

There is no commercial license to acquire for git, you can just start to use it. Also if you make no changes to the git source code there are no obligations to fulfil.

The use case:
"git submodule update" seems to be inefficient when running sequentially on a large .gitmodules file. Assuming a git forest with over 7K gits it takes hours to complete the update (running on Windows+Cygwin)

If not supported, this feature could be a good candidate for "git submodule" enhancement.
What is your opinion or advice?

Is there a place record when I run "git pull" the last time.

We would like to include it in our software master and have it installed on all computers. We are just double checking as some license agreements can be confusing.

basically, I've got clones of some expensive-to-build projects (node.js), and I have changes that I want to rebase/cherry-pick onto dev and stable branches.

I know I can push to a remote, then pull into my other, and keep the two on different branches so the builds don't get out of date. But, I think I'd like it if they all just shared the same objects, branches, etc...

Could I symlink together my .git{branches,config,hoks,logs,objects,packed-refs,refs} directories? Is this just going to kill me later?

It was referenced in "Git from the bottom up", but I've never used Quilt, and neither project really explains what it is for/doing.
