Added some alias stuff to display git branch description everytime I do git status (or gs as it's aliased for me). That helps me keep on track with branches that are named like issue-[nro] or fix-[nro].
function parse_git_branch_name {
git rev-parse --abbrev-ref HEAD
}
function parse_git_description {
git config branch.$(parse_git_branch_name).description
}
alias gs='echo $(parse_git_branch_name): $(parse_git_description) && git status'

Hi! This is very cool. I only just recently using git for more than just linear commits. How would I set up my git to run this script?

Update: I've got the script running! Thanks for writing this!!!
