This app is a small server to serve as a GitHub Post-Receive hook to add 
comments, and update state in Pivotal Tracker, similar to say the Lighthouse
service integration.

Configure your Tracker API key, and Project ID in a config.yml file placed in 
the same directory as this app.  It should look something like:

  github_url: 'http://github.com/chris/tracker_github_hook'
  tracker_api_token: a1230e72340e3babc96d5e2fab67c18d
  tracker_project_id: 123
  ref: refs/heads/master
The label ('tracker_github_hook' in this case) is arbitrary and not used, it's
just their to be a useful bit of info to humans/organize the nested settings, 
and is not used.  This setup allows you to have one service that supports
multiple Tracker/GitHub projects, just define one of the above blocks for each
one, and then anytime GitHub sends a push, the service will tease out which
GitHub repo it came from and correlate that to which Tracker project you've
assigned to that.

The "ref" field is also optional; it will tell the hook to ignore commits on
any branches other than the one listed. This is useful to prevent duplication
of comments being pushed into Tracker if you have multiple remote branches.

When you make commits to Git/GitHub, and want a comment and optionally a state 
update made to a story in Tracker, add the following text to your commit 

    [Story##### state:finished]

where ##### is the story number (see the bottom of an expanded story in 
Tracker for its ID).

A commit message can have more than one [Story####] block, but the entire 
commit message will be added to both stories. The duplication is unfortunate
but better than the alternative of ignoring additional story references

This project also requires the following rubygems:
- sinatra
- rest-client
- json
