Git Tools Update Set

Update a set of repositories by name, or host.

  • "git_update_set github"
  • "git_update_set bak"
  • "git_update_set key"
  • "git_update_set my.specialhost.com.au"

Basically finds all git repos one level deeper than the current directory that have a remote repo by name matching the entry, or host matching the command line and updates them.

NOTE: This is for simple repos - e.g. you just want to keep a copy of upstream code, or doing very basic "master only" style git repos. If you are doing advanced git this doesn't work very well.
