Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.


Two version of git are available - an older version that is provided by the operating system and is available on both the login nodes and worker nodes:

$ git --version
git version

And a newer version that can be activated by loading a module file and is only available on the worker nodes:

$ module load git/2.39.2-GCCcore-10.3.0-nodocs
$ git --version
git version 2.39.2
