gitrecipe uses system git command and its syntax.
Recipe clones git repository and checkouts to revision, if it is provided in configuration. You can use recipe like this:
parts = data
recipe = gitrecipe
repository = git://example.com/my-git-repo.git
rev = origin/redevlop-branch
repository - repository url
ref of rev - git reference wich you want to checkout
rev option leaved for compatibility with zerokspot.recipe.git. It is better to use ref parameter, because it corresponds Git terminology
I've used recipe zerokspot.recipe.git, but as for me, it too complex and has some disadvantages:
* it does not allow commit from the source folder, default remote is local copy in downloads
* it does not allow to specify the tag or branch of the repository, only revision hash
So I wrote my own git recipe with compatible options. You can choose this or that.
