The git release command for auto-incrementing git tags for releases

Project Description


`git-releaseit` adds a git command which will smartly auto-increment git release tags. It currently only supports tags following the `major.minor` convension.

Getting Started

You can get started with `git-releaseit` by using PIP:

pip install git-releaseit

This can be done in a virtual environment or at the system level.

From then on, you can tag your new releases with something like:
git release major
git release minor
where `major` indicates a major release and will increment the major version number and reset the minor, and `minor` indicates a minor release and will increment the minor version number and leave the major version number alone.

The command also supports the `-s` option, which will attempt to sign the tag.

The tags are annotated by default, so a `-a` option is not needed.
