       Git::Repository::Plugin - Base class for Git::Repository plugins


           package Git::Repository::Plugin::Hello;

           use Git::Repository::Plugin;
           our @ISA = qw( Git::Repository::Plugin );

           sub _keywords { return qw( hello hello_gitdir ) }

           sub hello        { return "Hello, git world!\n"; }
           sub hello_gitdir { return "Hello, " . $_[0]->git_dir . "!\n"; }



       Git::Repository::Plugin allows one to define new methods for Git::Repository, that will be
       imported in the Git::Repository namespace.

       The SYNOPSIS provides a full example.

       The documentation of Git::Repository describes how to load plugins with all the methods
       they provide, or only a selection of them.


       Git::Repository::Plugin provides a single method:

           $plugin->install( @keywords );

       Install all keywords provided in the Git::Repository namespace.

       If called with an empty list, will install all available keywords.


   Adding methods to Git::Repository
       When creating a plugin, the new keywords (i.e. methods) that are added by the plugin to
       Git::Repository must be returned by a "_keywords()" method.

   Adding attributes to Git::Repository
       Git::Repository is a blessed hash reference.

       If extra attributes are needed, the recommended name for the hash key (to avoid name
       clashes between plugins) is "_plugin_name_attribute", where name is the plugin lowercase
       name, and attribute is the attribute name.

       Thanks to Todd Rinaldo, who wanted to add more methods to Git::Repository, which made me
       look for a solution that would preserve the minimalism of Git::Repository.

       After a not-so-good design using @ISA (so Git::Repository would inherit the extra
       methods), further discussions with Aristotle Pagaltzis and a quick peek at Dancer's plugin
       management helped me come up with the current design. Thank you Aristotle and the Dancer

       Further improvements to the plugin system proposed by Aristotle Pagaltzis.
