Defines functions set_git_credentials_cache

Documented in set_git_credentials_cache

#' @title Set git credential cache time
#' @description Set the amount of time that the git credentials will be
#' available on the system you are working on.
#' @details As we move between servers to work we oftentimes do not want to
#' store our git passwords there. For instance when we are workign on servers
#' of third parties. The extreme is to include the username and password for
#' every single git call. But with git we can have a middle way where we store
#' the credentials in cache for a limited amount of time.
#' @param hours the amount of hours that the credentials should be stored.
#' Defaults to 4 hours.
#' @param global if TRUE then the setting will be sett as a global setting. If
#' FALSE it will only be for the current git repository
#' @return No return value, called for side effects
#' @export
