I started work on a script to help keep our up-to-date with our Git repository:

Does something similar already exist?
Everyone on our project is comfortable adding/removing files from Git but the sometimes get overlooked or new project members are unfamiliar with Automake. Now if a file is removed from the repository but not from a the script rewrites the, dropping the file from it as well. If a file is added to the repository the script also adds it to the appropriate's EXTRA_DIST variable. This isn't always the correct edit: Sometimes it should get added to a different primary or sometimes the file isn't to be distributed. The script takes a configurable list of files which aren't distributed. On one hand we now have another list of files to keep up-to-date, just shifting the problem, but we're more commonly adding/removing files that are distributed, so the list of files which aren't changes less frequently than the Also the script hopefully gets the developer's attention whereupon she can intervene with a better edit, whereas without it, forgetting to distribute a new file can sometimes go unnoticed for a long time.
