Also maybe learn Vim because it’s amazing. Who’d pay a small amount for an ‘Introduction to Vim’ screencast series?

I have huge respect to every developer in the world who has to do most stuff in English; it’s so impressive.

But I’m also glad you’re doing German screencasts: it probably helps German developers whose English might not be so good :)

Yeah, your written English has always been amazing! I wish I’d continued my German studies. I’ve forgotten nearly all of it :(

For a formal project, commit ref, one-line title, and detailed message. I always try to remain flexible though.
