            Magit
            It is an interface to the version control system Git, implemented as an Emacs package. It aspires to be a complete Git porcelain.

While many fine Git clients exist, only deserve to be called porcelains.

            Version control is complex so having a) responsive support line both fast in response and comprehensive in their support, is great; but also b) easy to use GUIs reduce complexity: a nifty branch explorer helps you navigate the most convoluted of architectures.

            Plastic SCM is a solid, reliable piece of software that will help you with get things done.
