    alias gstatus='git status'
    alias gcommit='git commit'

    Or whatever other commands you want? I don't see the need for a purpose built shell when aliases would work just fine?

    Some people just want to overengineer things I guess...

    The developer in the article does not "say there is a need for this shell because many early Unix utilities don't take sub-commands", as the summary says. Rather, he motivates the idea of gitsh by comparing it to utilities which act in a shell-like manner (he picks dc as an example): if it works for them, why not for git too?

    The first version (from the summary) makes no sense; the second version (from the article) seems like a reasonable argument to me.

    Rather than fucking beta, how about we try to get the fucking summaries correct?

    There is already a git-sh [] . It even have a debian package included on the main repos.
