The bash script is a script to clean a git repository. Either to see big files, remove them, or remove them from history.

#!/usr/bin/env bash

# Script to remove files from the git history.
# Execute this script in the git root directory
# For a size report: ./gitsize.sh df
# To remove the big files:
# use like: ./gitsize.sh rm $bigfilename
# Example: ./gitsize.sh rm includes/ubuntu-12.04.iso
# It will then search your git repo and remove all of it.

# Installing:
#   chmod +x ./git-clean.sh, and run it. Must be run from inside a
#   git repository you will get an error.
