I think the word to meaning changes have much to do with the Linus Torvalds[^] absolutely hating the way svn, tfs and others did things and deciding to develop git in a vacuum (sort of speak) as in completely throwing the baby out with the bath water in terms of the conventions that developers were familiar with and starting over from scratch. Like learning Chinese and then learning Spanish. They both have ways of saying I am hungry but that is where the similarities end. Note: I know nothing of either languages but, it was a wild guess that they have no influence on each other.
