I'm not saying that the team needs to telegraph their intentions every step of the way (although it would be nice to avoid BAF-style surprises), but I'm not the only one who's put a lot of work into projects that have been torpedoed by new items coming from the mothership that we didn't expect. However, I don't think the team takes user-level version control seriously enough to warrant this being a real problem.

I get the feeling that the team is hoping that someone comes up with a better idea than the complicated file formats that peter and I came up with and are prepared to wait for that. I think the platform would need to change drastically for anything that appeared clean on GitHub to work. BTW I just realised there’s absolutely nothing stopping us integrating an entire pull request and change review system into the IDE rather than use a web app for that it would probably make more sense to keep it in the IDE. GitHub API can manage pull requests so I assume bitbucket, gitlab etc apis can do so also.
