Braid 0.5 - vendor branch management tool


#1

= Braid

Braid is a simple tool to help track git and svn vendor branches in a
git repository.

This is a major release that brings two main features (no more braid/
track branch and better merging support) and lots of usability
changes, bugfixes and tweaks.

The braid project page has now moved to github, mainly because we
wanted to use the wiki for documentation.

Braid now also has a google group. If you have questions or ideas
about braid, please subscribe.

What does this actually do?

braid add git://github.com/mojombo/grit.git lib/grit

Does it clone the whole grit repository into lib/grit? I’ve read
through the docs and see nothing that explains this. Of cource, I
could just try it but I’d like to know what I’m getting into :wink:

Thanks,
