My reply was to Ingo only not to you all XFCE guys.

I tried to work with git at first since Ingo asked me because he was
not able to compile subversion on his scratch Linux distro but I got
frustrated googling the git errors each time I tried to push. I also
found difficult to start another branch and work with it. I never had
all the troubles I had with git when using svn. Thank you Auke for
your kind proposal to help me regarding git, be sure I appreciate your
kindness. Lately I don't have time at all to follow git courses or
reading docs or googling for solution when under svn, commits were
always smooth so my only alternative was to quit and return to

I already started to rewrite Xarchiver by reusing portions of the
0.5.2 code since I got more C experience when I started Xarchiver back
in 2005. Any help by anyone (Ingo included) is ALWAYS appreciated, I
don't have any problems to apply patches and quote people in the About
box of Xarchiver.
