gitc is a git automation tool used by CAPITA Unternehmensberatung GmbH which comes packaged as the Rubygem capita_git.
It's main purpose is to automate repetivite tasks like spawing new feature branches, updating and rebasing from the source branch of a given feature branch, as well as closing/merging feature branches back into their original tree.
gitc uses a strict naming convention for creating, identifying and maintaining local and remote branches and depends on the user's name being set in the git configuration of your local cloned copy or in the global settings.
Please make sure that both
$ git config user.name
$ git config user.email
return your correct name and email address.
$ gem install capita_git $ gitc install_autocomplete
