Hi Andrew,

After our irc conversation about in-tree or out-of-tree management of your 
tools, I thought I'd let you know GnuCash is also using an experimental git 
repository, which is a clone of the master subversion tree. They are kept in 
sync and some developers are using it daily.

You may be interested to clone your own gnucash git repository and store your 
python script directly in there. This will give you both the benefit of git 
management and in-tree development.

As said before, if you prefer your own git repo, that's fine as well.

You can learn more about the GnuCash git repo and how to use it on

Nice to hear !
