Test::Requires::Git offers a simple way to declare which versions of
git a test depends on, so that it can be skipped if the available
git does not match the specification.
This module does not depend on any
git wrapper (it would be weird to test one using another), but instead simply runs
`git --version` (that command works back to git version 1.0.0 at least) to pick whatever
git happens to be in the
It's more sophisticated than my own Test::Git
has_git function, as it supports all version comparison operators (that code comes from Git::Repository, and can also skip a specific number of tests (for use in a
SKIP block). It will also do the right thing if your test suite has already started to output some test results.
I recommend using at least version 1.002, as it's the first one that supports all the necessary test features. (I've removed all the previous releases from CPAN anyway.)
My plan for
Test::Requires::Git include adding support for Git::Features, when I've actually written it.
