This of course meant I’d need to get PHPUnit setup using Git. I figured this would be easier, since PHPUnit has recently moved to github. I think there are only a few ways it could be harder. I’m sure Sebastian had the best of intentions when he split up PHPUnit into several repositories. However, it has made working with PHPUnit from Git mildly painful. Since PHPUnit doesn’t use submodules at all, you are left to your own devices to solve its various dependencies. I wanted to work off the master branch, as thats where the next version of PHPUnit looks like it will come from.
