Is it a command-line tool? I find the description rather generic, it does not give me a real idea of what I am dealing with.
It's a service which runs in your user session and tracks changes to files in the watched directory as git commits. This means that, in addition to using your desktop environment to interact with the files, you can also use git to examine the history. Syncing to remote git repositories is also transparent. The tool is designed for collaboration, rather than backup as in e.g. Dropbox. Sorry if the description was unclear, and thanks for your feedback. I'll improve it.
Are there .debs for testing already?
No. I might provide some unofficial preview packages soon, but the software is still rather experimental. In the meantime, it's pretty easy to build (standard autotools), once you have all of the build dependencies installed. There aren't many, and they are all in Debian already. I'll keep this bug updated with information when the situation develops. Cheers, Iain
