[Systems] Requesting feedback on the newpootle git commiter script.

Hello guys,

I have mocked up a basic script to automate translation committing for
projects hosted on newpootle. As Pootle 2.5's directory structure is very
different from ours and I don't think there is any way to convert our
directory structure to something similar to theirs (because we host our
projects category wise). Hence, I think its best to create a simple
standalone script which will work for our purposes. I think the following
script would do the job. I could really use some useful feedback or
alternate solutions to the problem.

DIRS=`find $START_DIR -name ".git" -type d`
for DIR in $DIRS
    cd $START_DIR/$DIR/../
    echo -e "\n---- Committing files in `pwd` ----\n"
    git commit -a -m "Pootle commit." 2>&1 >/dev/null
    git pull 2>&1 >/dev/null
    git rebase
    [ $RETVAL -ne 0 ] && echo "Rebase failed in $START_DIR/$DIR. Please
check and fix the conflicts."
    [ $RETVAL -eq 0 ] && git push
    echo -e "\n----*-----------------------*----\n"
