TopGit 0.9


I’m pleased to announce that TopGit 0.9 was released today.

TopGit aims to make handling of large amounts of interdependent topic
branches easier. In fact, it is designed especially for the case where
you maintain a queue of third-party patches on top of another (perhaps
Git-controlled) project and want to easily organize, maintain and
them – TopGit achieves that by keeping a separate topic branch for each
patch and providing some tools to maintain the branches.

After a long hiatus, TopGit has a new release, a new maintainer (me),
has moved to GitHub:

(note that patches are still required to be signed off.)

The 0.9 release is tagged and available for download at:
(Yes, I know GitHub’s display of the tag description is terrible, but
shows up fine in git.)

Because it’s been 3 years since the last release, there are quite a few
patches since 0.8, but most of them are quite minor changes.

If you are upgrading from the HEAD of the old TopGit repository, all of
only the patches by me, Andrey Borzenkov and Heiko Hund are new
compared to
that revision.

Patches can be submitted either to me, to this list, or to the GitHub
issue tracker. There is also an IRC channel, #topgit on
