a) How are you calling git right now? (Or even better: where can I get
your code to have a look?)

b) Why is it painful to use QProcess?

You can't do this without using QProcess or KProcess (the latter is
possibly a bit easier to use). And you also don't need to use it in
"Shell" mode.

And KJob/VcsJob themselves are just empty containers, they just provide
a job-like API on top of whatever you put into your implementation of
the start() method.


Your nature demands love and your happiness depends on it.
