And again, git handles both use cases, so what's your point?

It has been pointed out to you that it DOES. Either that or nobody else
understands your nebulous use of "transparency" so maybe you should
define it like we've been asking you. Furthermore, the comment you
replied to said nothing about transparency, nor did your comment it was
in reply to; rather it was pointing out the fact that your statement
that the git can not perform version control on the client is patently

Perhaps you should. We have been trying to get you to explain how you
think git isn't "transparent" while at the same time pointing out how we
think it is. You have failed to demonstrate any evidence to back up
your claims, all of which have been shown to be false.
