is a Python program that wraps
gclient sync. Motivations for using it:
Written in Python, so it will work on all platforms.
Sets up gclient better than
gclient config, which has been broken.
Checks to see if the
DEPSfile has changed since it last ran
gclient sync. If not, it skips that step.
syncis fast when it can do nothing, it is easy to do before every recompile of Skia. This is a good habit.
