Bug#959992: ITP: gitid -- A simple, minimal git identity management tool

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Luiserebii <luis@serebii.io>

* Package name    : gitid
  Version         : 0.3.1
  Upstream Author : Luiserebii <luis@serebii.io>
* URL             : https://github.com/Luiserebii/gitid

  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : A simple, minimal git identity management tool

gitid is a command line tool allowing for easy shifting between git identities (username, email, and signing key (e.g GPG)). It aims to make working with different git configurations easy and shifting between identities painless. Above all, the tool aims to reduce any possibility for user error. It is intended for people who need to manage multiple username/email/signing key configurations, and want to minimize the difficulties and risk of managing multiple repositories with multiple configurations. A short, readable guide may be found here: https://luiserebii.io/2020/05/introduction-to-gitid/

The alternative, to maintain a list of identities somewhere and to manually paste them into a new repo's .gitconfig allows for too much error, and it is not simple to manage.

This package intends to make this program useful for those who encounter this issue, and provide a unified interface to handle this. I personally use this package daily, and am therefore invested in maintaining it and making it useful for others.

I plan to maintain this package by following the typical Debian maintainment procedures, fixing bugs as reported. I also intend to be active in responding to new issues raised on the project's GitHub repository.

I do need a sponsor for this package, and would be grateful to receive any assistance. I plan to spend time making the package, before making a request-for-sponsorship.

Thank you!
