 Put that alias into your git config.

 Use 'git root' to show git repo you're in.  It won't be confused by
submodules, presence of .svn directories, etc.

 Optionally have an alias:
* alias wtaf='cd $(git root)'*

 .. to do the actual forcible relocation to the root of the current git
repository, assuming that you're lost within directory structures often
enough that this is useful.
