Using Git for project file management

A critical element in doing any API work is managing all the project files. That means being able to track all the changes we make to our files, sharing them in a way that allows others on our team to make their own changes without overwriting ours, and—in case of serious problems— reverse one or more of those changes in order to undo any mistakes that might have been made. This kind of work falls under the category of version control systems (VCS) or source code management (SCM).
