I am using git for a fairly large win32 project. And I often switch
between 3 branches. Each branch represents different versions of the
same product that I work. One of them uses visual studio 2005 to build
while the other 2 use VS2008. The problem is, when I switch between
branches I have to rebuild the entire project every time. This becomes
a real pain when I have to switch between the branches many times a
day. To resolve the problem, I did a local clone of the repo but each
clone consumes nearly 2-3GB of space. Is there an efficient way that
uses less space (i.e reduce the need for clones) and reduces the need
to rebuild every time I switch between branches.
Looking forward for suggestions.
thanks in advance.
