[jgit-dev] Agit - Git client for Android

Hi there - hopefully without being too spammy, I thought you might like to know that I've released Agit, my Git client for Android  - which of course uses JGit for all it's git-related heavy-lifting:

The code is up on github and there's also a short demo up on youtube if you'd like to see what it looks like:

I'm particularily proud of the animated diffs that gently transition from Before to After, and back again :-)

The app only supports clone & fetch at the moment - no commit or push, because I haven't had the time to build all the user interface around that - but I reckon implementing pinch-gesture-branch-merge would be fun!

I'd like to thank the JGit community for being so helpful, producing a great library, and especially accepting patches that allowed JGit to run on devices with very severely restricted memory ;-)

Wow, ok. That's great! The main reason I wanted to do this project was
because I was needing Git on my android (phone) to check some code out
and do minor fixes if I needed.
I'll be expecting your release.

Thank you all!
