Expire a hitch session? #7
On a frequent basis, pairs forget to unhitch / hitch. As a result some commits are attributed to the wrong pair.
I am thinking of a feature to allow hitch to take an optional argument to set a maximum time for a hitch session. For example
hitch -t 86400 bob john
-t Sets a maximum lifetime to the hitch session. Time specified in seconds.
Thoughts on the usefulness or possible implementation? Looking at the code nothing jumps out as to how it could be implemented. Initial thoughts may require hitch to run as a daemon -- not a simple change.
