Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Git - Update your git repository after release


version 2.045


This set of plugins for Dist::Zilla can do interesting things for module authors using Git (https://git-scm.com) to track their work.

You need Git 1.5.4 or later to use these plugins. Some plugins require a more recent version of Git for certain features.

The @Git Bundle

The most commonly used plugins are part of the @Git bundle. They are:

  • Git::Check

    Before a release, check that the repo is in a clean state (you have committed your changes).

  • Git::Commit

    After a release, commit updated files.

  • Git::Tag

    After a release, tag the just-released version.

  • Git::Push

    After a release, push the released code & tag to your public repo.

Non-Bundled Plugins

The other plugins in this distribution are not included in the @Git bundle, either because they conflict with Dist::Zilla's @Basic bundle or because they have more specialized uses.


Bugs may be submitted through the RT bug tracker (or bug-Dist-Zilla-Plugin-Git@rt.cpan.org).

There is also a mailing list available for users of this distribution, at http://dzil.org/#mailing-list.

There is also an irc channel available for users of this distribution, at #distzilla on irc.perl.org.

I am also usually active on irc, as 'ether' at irc.perl.org.
