I’ve been looking for a good command for making a textual graph of my repo, showing the various branches, where they come from, etc. The reason I like this one is that it’s not only a graph, but it shows the branch names like ‘gitk –all’ does, but only the ones that are tied to tags or branches.
I’ve had complex backup solutions in the past, which I wrote myself with rsync and bash.

I get emails every time they run, as part of cron.
