I like gh-issues, and its ability to allow other users to easily comment on my project. I also like ticgit, and the fact that I have integral parts of my project with me, even if github is unavailable. So, I want to use both!

Since we'll be making commits on behalf of other users, it won't be perfect. But hey, let's see what we can do.


Scott Chacon's ticgit hasn't been updated in some time (and doesn't work with Ruby 1.9), so you'll probably need to install from one of the forks. I used jeffWelling's.

ticgit currently requires ruby/git, which is deprecated in favor of grit. Until someone fixes that, you'll need a version of ruby/git that works with ruby 1.9. I'm attempting to maintain one. Be aware that it currently requires jeweler to build the gem, and jeweler requires ruby/git, so you'll be overwriting the version of ruby/git that gets pulled in by gem. sigh

You'll also need octopi. Until issue 18 gets fixed, you'll want to grab my fork.

On the Name

ticgit---gh-issues-synchronizer was just too damn long a name, even if it was descriptive. So, I went looking:

Google -> Wikipedia (Synchronizer) -> Wikipedia (Synchronization -> Wikipedia (Data Synchronization) -> Scholarpedia (Slepian-Wolf coding) -> sleeping wolf

Plus, I can have an awesomely cute logo, once I find someone to make it!
