Git ecosystem can be an excellent knowledge management platform, but fundamentally it is operated by human decisions.

I discussed and implemented deterministic ways for computers to synchronize and resolve conflicts in the Git ecosystem automatically.

It was much more difficult than I had previously thought.

It looked like Git needed some constraints to work deterministically, and I needed to make explicit what implicit rules humans use in automated workflows like CI/CD.
