## git-publish-branch: a simple script to ease the unnecessarily complex
## task of "publishing" a branch, i.e., taking a local branch, creating a
## reference to it on a remote repo, and setting up the local branch to
## track the remote one, all in one go. you can even delete that remote
## reference.
##
## Usage: git publish-branch [-d] <branch> [repository]
##
## '-d' signifies deletion. <branch> is the branch to publish, and
## [repository] defaults to "origin". The remote branch name will be the
## same as the local branch name. Don't make life unnecessarily complex
## for yourself.
##
## Note that unpublishing a branch doesn't delete the local branch.
## Safety first!
