       cogito - version control system


       cg-COMMAND <arg>...


       Cogito  is  a  version  control  system  layered on top of the git tree
       history storage system. Amongst some of the noteworthy features, Cogito
       has   support   for   branching,  tagging  and  multiple  backends  for
       distributing repositories (local files, rsync, HTTP, ssh).

       Cogito is implemented as a series of bash(1) scripts on top  of  git(7)
       (a content-tracking filesystem) with the goal of providing an interface
       for working with the GIT database in a  manner  similar  to  other  SCM
       tools (like CVS, BitKeeper or Monotone).


       The  Cogito  commands  can  be split into regular commands and advanced
       commands. The regular commands are those used  for  normal  interacting
       with  the  repository,  while  the  advanced  commands  can be used for
       administrating the repository and should to some degree be regarded  as
       low-level and in some cases dangerous.

       Below  an overview of the available commands are listed. For details on
       individual commands, do e.g.

       cg-help cg-log


       cg-log --help

   Helper commands
       There  are a few helper commands that are not meant to be used from the
       command line. They provide a library of generic functions used by  many
       of  the  real  Cogito  commands. You can safely ignore them, unless you
       want to contribute to Cogito development.

              This  file  is  read  on startup if stdout is a terminal and may
              contain information about default  command  line  options.  Each
              line consists of a command name and a list of options. Lines not
              starting with a Cogito command name are ignored. To have  cg-log
              and cg-diff colorize the output put the following in ~/.cgrc:

              log -c
              diff -c
