I forgot to mention in my other reply: "a hunk at a time" should still be something that works as is. As a minimum requirement, it should still compile, and not cause build errors. I'm all for committing small individual steps of work, using individual commits for unrelated changes. (i.e., not combining fixes for separate bugs into one commit). This will make it easier for others to figure out which change was supposed to fix a certain bug, add a certain feature, etc. It will also make it easier to revert a small change that was problematic, instead of reverting a commit that changed thousands of lines of code across multiple source files. But build failures in individual commits will make bisecting a bug harder. Frank
