Git::Wrapper::Plus Initially, I started off with "Dist::Zilla::Util::" and friends, but I soon discovered so many quirks in "git", especially multiple-version support, and that such a toolkit would be more useful independent. So "Git::Wrapper::Plus" is a collection of tools for using "Git::Wrapper", aiming to work on all versions of Git since at least Git 1.3. For instance, you probably don't realize this, but on older "git"'s, echo > file git add file git commit echo 2 > file git add file git commit does nothing, because on Git 1.3, "git add" is only for the addition to tree, not subsequent updates. echo > file git add file git commit echo 2 > file git update-index file git commit Is how it works there. And you'd have probably not realized this till you had a few smoke reports back with failures on old Gits. And there's more common failures, like some commands simply don't exist on old gits.
