Script like tools/update_revnum.py and IPython.core.release.revision are bzr oriented. We need to update these things for git.
Is this still an issue? A quick glance didn't turn up anything that looked bzr focussed.
There don't appear to be any bzr-focused bits, but there appears to be a simple absence of any git-based replacements.
For 0.11, having cleaned up the bzr noise is enough. I'm reassigning to 0.12 since there's no point in blocking 0.11 over this, we can fine-tune our tools for git later.
Mmh, we've been working pretty well with git as-is for a while, and I don't really think we have a major need for git-oriented tools right now. I'm closing this one so we cull our todo list a bit; if we find a specific need for a tool we can always just add it in tools/. The real issue was cleaning up all the bzr stuff, which is done. I'm trying to have a more realistic list of stuff we actually do need to work on, so we can focus, and this one seems to be in good shape for considering it closed.
