Response to: When to commit

I generally commit something as soon as I realize I'd not want to type it in again. Although it really varies by project; projects that have more than one person working on them benefit from more occasional commits that are tested and working, so if I need to make intermediate commits when working on such a project I'll typically spin off a temporary branch to work in.
