My branch of Zachary Danger’s nice starter set of git related tasks for Phing.
A tool for transparently and consistently being able to run the maintenance scripts in OS X, even if your computer is not on for 24 hours at a time. Once installed, it requires no input from user to do its magic. Also includes an AppleScript for temporarily suspending maintenance on occasion. Written in Perl and AppleScript. There’s also a preference pane version of XJanitor-PL written in Cocoa.
