This is an open series in which Hacker Public Radio Listeners can share their knowledge and experience of version or revision control systems such as Bazaar, Mercurial, Subversion, CVS and Git.
How to make your own Git subcommands with shell scripts, and then how to pass arguments to them with git rev-parse.
For a real-world example of Git in scripts and hooks, see Git-portal.
The joke site Klaatu mentions in the episode is
git-man-page-generator. It's a joke site. Do not attempt to run these commands. However, it could be fun inspiration on what Git command you could make next!
