  • All hidden directories and files left by version control systems are completely removed.

  • It's written using only methods available in the standard Ruby library. No need of third party gems.
  • Since it's written on an interpreted language, it works on the major operating systems, as long as a Ruby interpreter is available.
  • It currently supports the following version control systems: CVS, Subversion, Git and Mercurial. Other version control systems can be added.
