I love and it freaks me out a little that you can have a git repo with multiple root branches, all entirely disjoint from one another. I'm not a fiction writer, but this seems like it could be the basis for an interesting literary device. A singular but complex piece of writing in the form of text files in a git repository, with entirely different stories along different branches, or different pieces of the same story, or rather multiple versions of the story, told from various points of view. Interesting effects might be obtained using the commit history and log graph, introducing bits of plot that are overwritten in later versions, so the reader would have to check out earlier versions to discover.
I can't be the first person to have thought of this, can I? Surely something at least somewhat like this already exists somewhere? Hm...

The drums on “In the Mood” are particularly solid and in the pocket, even for my dude Phil
Further more, they are actively exploring ways on how to become independent from the FSF and the GNU Project:
"We do not want our project associated with such a person, nor to provide economic resources to organizations that promote him to leadership positions."
