Grep throws a few errors with parent directories that have spaces in them, also doesn't seem to be able to pick up versions in a docblock but aside from that it works well.

Life saver this script!
I also ran into a few issues on my Mac due to spaces in the parent folders, as well as trying to find the version number in the PHP file. Here's some comments/fixes for future users....

  1. Line 13 - Username case is important. Use whatever is shown as your username in your WordPress dot org profile.
  2. Line 42 - wrap the $GITPATH variable in double quotes. The new line becomes: NEWVERSION1=`grep "^Stable tag" "$GITPATH"/readme.t...
  3. Line 44 - Same issue as the one above, but I also wrap my plugin header the way WordPress shows it, ie with an * on a new line within the main opening and closing comment tags. As a result the script wasn't able to pick up the version number in the PHP file. To be clear, mine is written as * Version: 2.0. The '{print $2}' at the end of the line also needs to be adjusted for this. All in, the new line 44 looks like this: NEWVERSION2=`grep "^\* Version" "$GITPATH"/$MAINFILE | awk -F' ' '{print $3}'`
  4. Line 51 - $GITPATH should also be wrapped in quotes - so the whole line should be: cd "$GITPATH"
  5. Lastly, my Mac version no longer includes svn by default, so this will need to be installed. This SO answer saved the day, noting I went with the brew version on Catalina.
