Discussion on: Git blameless?

Subversion has blame too, but it's an alias for praise and annotate (or ann for short).

I presume Git took blame from Subversion, but didn't bring the others along for the ride. I'd advocate having the others as aliases because it brings familiarity between VCSs, regardless of anything else.

annotate is kinda neutral, but I think who is probably the best solution, because it literally answers the question, "who last touched this?"
