Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Git - Update your git repository after release


version 2.046


This set of plugins for Dist::Zilla can do interesting things for module authors using Git ( to track their work.

You need Git 1.5.4 or later to use these plugins. Some plugins require a more recent version of Git for certain features.

The @Git Bundle

The most commonly used plugins are part of the @Git bundle. They are:

  • Git::Check

    Before a release, check that the repo is in a clean state (you have committed your changes).

  • Git::Commit

    After a release, commit updated files.

  • Git::Tag

    After a release, tag the just-released version.

  • Git::Push

    After a release, push the released code & tag to your public repo.

Non-Bundled Plugins

The other plugins in this distribution are not included in the @Git bundle, either because they conflict with Dist::Zilla's @Basic bundle or because they have more specialized uses.
