git-info: Displaying information about a Git repository a la `svn info’

I haven’t been writing much in English about technical stuff, so I am going to start this blog with a series of articles that introduce some of my little works.

I picked git-info(1) to begin with, which is a small shell script that provides Git with a similar functionality to “svn info“.  As a long time user of Subversion who was new to Git I really missed a handy command to see repository information at a glance, so I wrote this.

A sample output (at the time of writing) is as follows.

Hope this helps you on your way.
