Hey Joshua,

Your plugin is this, right?

AFAICT that seems to help configuring a git-based development environment for working on charms, and automating the creation/update of a local charm repository. 
That’s not what juju-git-deploy is about: it does not clone/update git repositories, it just deploys charms hosted on Github, e.g.:

  juju git-deploy hatched/ghost-charm

After running the command above, the charm at is actually deployed on the current Juju environment, and no local repositories (i.e. ~/charms/) are created. 
As I mentioned, those two projects seem to have different goals to me. Am I missing something?
