GitPython is a python library used to interact with Git repositories.
GitPython provides object model read and write access to your git repository.
Access repository information conveniently, alter the index directly, handle
remotes, or go down to low-level object database access with big-files support.
With the new object database abstraction added in 0.3, its even possible to
implement your own storage mechanisms, the currently available implementations
are 'cgit' and pure python, which is the default.
