git-utils is a collection of simple utilities that made my Git life easier in some way or another. I tried to clean them up as much as necessary prior to putting here, so it should be easy to use for others as well.


You don’t need anything special, just a working installation of Git and a UNIX system (tested with Mac OS X and Linux). To install the git-utils into /usr/local run

$ sudo make install

or just pick the scripts that you need and place them wherever you want.
