Hi Rick

I see how GIT has been used to build tooling such as Gerrit, are there any other use cases of how GIT can be used as the bases for productivity or workflow related applications?

Hello Paul!

I'm not aware of any, but using Git as a base for productivity or workflow tools is intriguing. Since Git doesn't require a server, software could use Git in the background whenever a version is needed. Is this what you meant?

I think Git will become ingrained in our developer workflow, becoming more that just source control but a productivity utility that underpins the tool chain.
There are also examples of people using Git for more that just source control: https://www.thoughtworks.com/insights/blog/incremental-approach-content-management-using-git
