Quick question, why is there only one comic in here not even about version control? This doesn’t feel like it should be a category. Netherin5 (talk) 13:39, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

There are four comics in here. Three of them are in, which is a subcategory here: xkcd 1296, xkcd 1597, xkcd 1667. As you can see from the history, I debated whether it was better to have a broader version control category or a Git category or both, and after initially creating a Git category (subcat of), I made it a subcategory of version control. The subcategory handling is not as elegant as I would hope for, though; perhaps those 3 above should also be in this category directly? But I would also challenge the implication that a category with one comic is a problem; for the same reason that redlinks are legitimate, so too it's OK to have a category that doesn't have much in it. It's not like we're bursting at the seems with too many categories. In this case, I was spurred to do this because I was trying to find all the comics about version control, and had a tough time.
