Building notes, projects, and occasional rants

No more bazzilion git-* commands

In case you use the script from the last post, be advised that the current master branch of git.git no longer installs all those git-* on your PATH.

The current git/bin/ contents are:

[email protected]:melo $ ls -l /usr/local/git/bin
total 14664
-rwxr-xr-x   89 root  wheel  2826820 Jul  4 10:05 git
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root  wheel   573476 Jul  4 10:05 git-receive-pack
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root  wheel  2826820 Jul  4 10:05 git-upload-archive
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root  wheel   994596 Jul  4 10:05 git-upload-pack
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root  wheel   273636 Jul  4 10:05 gitk

I'm using version v1.5.6.1-204-g6991357. This is not the final 1.6 release (the next one), so you might see further commands added (git-shell might join this list).

At least for me, this required some training because I liked to git-TAB to complete...
