+git-sh-setup(1)
+===============
+
+NAME
+----
+git-sh-setup - Common git shell script setup code.
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-sh-setup'
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+
+Sets up the normal git environment variables and a few helper functions
+(currently just "die()"), and returns ok if it all looks like a git archive.
+So use it something like
+
+ . git-sh-setup || die "Not a git archive"
+
+to make the rest of the git scripts more careful and readable.
