In the past with drupal sites that I've worked on I have used hidden files
in my sites/site-name folder so that I can record in the commit history that
the folder was created. Perhaps something along a similar like might work
with notes.

 

Maybe something like

Create initial version of class file or files "maybe even empty files" then
use git add and git commit to store them in the repo and finally git notes
to add the description.

 

Since I mainly use git with drupal and just need to record when I create a
site specific folder or add / update a module I have a very basic working
knowledge of git. Based on how I interpret the below excerpt from the
git-notes man page I think the above would work as long as there is not a
commit between the initial addition/commit of the class files and the note.

 

This is from the git-notes man page at kernel.org

A typical use of notes is to supplement a commit message without changing
the commit itself. Notes can be shown by git log along with the original
commit message.

Mark,

 

Have you looked into the notes subcommand for git? I have not personally
used it myself so I'm not certain if it will work for what you want or not
but it does sound like it would at least be a start for the type of
functionality your looking for.

 

Well, I'd like to tie the notes to specific files, so that github and the
like can use them in displaying code.  I don't think a generic notes will do
the job....
