Makes a file available to a Rust project at build time containing the latest commit's sha and summary as static vars.

Shamelessly adapted from cstorey/git-build-version.

Invoke this tool in your package build step. In Cargo.toml, add it as a build dep:

name = "something-gratuitously-mentioning-rust"
build = "build.rs"

git-latest-commit = "0.1.3"

Then, in build.rs at the top level of your project:

extern crate git_latest_commit;

const PACKAGE_TOP_DIR : &'static str = ".";

fn main()
    git_latest_commit::write(PACKAGE_TOP_DIR).expect("Exporting git commit info.");
