=head1 NAME

Alien::Build::Plugin::Download::Git - Alien::Build plugin to download from git

=head1 VERSION

version 0.10


 use alienfile;
 meta->prop->{start_url} = '';
 plugin 'Download::Git' =>(
   version => qr/^v([0-9\.]+)$/,


This plugin downloads projects using git and selects the appropriate tag for
building.  Typically you want to build using the most recent production tag,
not just whatever C<master> happens to be at the moment.

This plugin uses these plugins to do the heavy lifting:

=item L<Alien::Build::Plugin::Fetch::Git>

=item L<Alien::Build::Plugin::Prefer::SortVersions>

=item L<ALien::Build::Plugin::Extract::Directory>


In fact this:

 plugin 'Download::Git' => (
   filter  => $filter,
   version => $version,

Is exactly the same as:

 plugin 'Fetch::Git';
 plugin 'Prefer::SortVersions' => (
   filter  => filter,
   version => $version,
 plugin 'Extract::Directory';

About the only time you would opt to use L<Alien::Build::Plugin::Fetch::Git>
directly, (unless you are not into the whole brevity thing), is if you wanted
to use something other that L<Alien::Build::Plugin::Prefer::SortVersions> to
choose which version you want to install.


=head2 filter

his is a regular expression that lets you filter out tags that you do not
want to consider downloading.  For example, if the tags included name such as


You could specify a filter of C<qr/^v[0-9\.]+$/> to make sure only tags that
appeared to be a version number are included.

=head2 version

Regular expression to parse out the version from tags.  The regular expression
should store the result in C<$1>.

In the previous example you might use the regular expression C<qr/^v([0-9\.]+/>.
