GitEye is a graphical Git client for Windows, Linux and OSX.  It supports any Git
repository and server. Specific support for GitHub, TeamForge and CloudForge is included,
but any server can be used as GitEye supports all Git protocols.

1. Requirements

     OS: Windows, Mac, or Linux
         32 and 64-bit versions available for each OS.
   Java: You must have Java 1.6 or newer installed. 
         We recommend the JRE from Sun/Oracle although OpenJDK 7 also works well.
    RAM: 1 GB of available RAM is recommended.

2. Installation

   GitEye is delivered as a simple zip file. Create an empty folder where you want to
   install the client and then unzip into that folder.

3. Registration

   GitEye is free to use, but must be registered to continue using it beyond the 30-day
   trial period.  Registration happens automatically if you connect GitEye to an existing
   TeamForge or CloudForge account. If you do not have an account, you can sign up for a free
   CloudForge account and that will then register GitEye once you connect it to your free
   account.

   We hope you find value in your free CloudForge account, should you choose that option, but
   once you create the account you are not required to use it.  GitEye will work with any Git
   repository or server.

4. Tips

   If you are on a 64-bit OS but are using a 32-bit JRE, then you should get the 32-bit version of GitEye.

   The launcher for GitEye will typically find Java automatically, but if it cannot, or you need to
   control the specific JRE that it uses, you can edit the giteye.ini file. For example, on Windows
   suppose you have the 32-bit JRE in PATH for various reasons. If you want to use the 64-bit version
   of GitEye, you can simply edit the giteye.ini to point at the 64-bit JRE:

   -vm
   C:/Program Files/Java/jre7/bin/javaw.exe

   If you want to change the amount of RAM available for GitEye you can do so by editing the JVM arguments
   in this same file -- giteye.ini.

   If you are on OSX 10.8, Mountain Lion, and have the Gatekeeper feature enabled, which it is by default,
   then you will not be able to simply run GitEye after installation. To run the app, simply right-click on
   the launcher and click Open. This will present you with a dialog that allows you to confirm you want to
   run the application even though it has not been digitally signed with an Apple Developer certificate.
   You only need to do this the first time you run the application.

   GitEye stores settings and preferences etc. in a "workspace" folder that is located in your HOME folder.
   The name of this folder is ".giteye" so it will be hidden automatically on most operating systems. You can
   remove this folder if you want to clean out all settings and start "fresh".

   If you have a team of co-workers that all want to use GitEye, you do not all need to signup for CloudForge.
   One of you can create the free CloudForge account, and you can then add the other users on your team from
   within CloudForge.  Each team member then just needs to connect GitEye to the CloudForge account you created
   for them and you can all collaborate on the same projects hosted in CloudForge.
