I agree with Martin that parsing git internals does not seem the right way to do it - they might change at some point. Additionally, I'd like to keep dvcs-autosync as agnostic to the used DVCS as possible (otherwise it will quickly become a git-autosync). At the moment, the DVCS can be swapped out by changing only the config file options. If I can keep that without sacrificing too much performance, I'd like to do so. best regards, Rene
