Digital source material is tracked with git.

Git is a version control system - a repository for historic versions of file contents of a folder.


A collection of public git repositories is available at https://source.example.org/.

Additional git repositories, public or accessible only by a smaller group, may exist as well.

Each git collection is maintained by a team, with equal full write access for all team members.
