I've been using git successfully on a project and now I realize that I
want to expand the directories under git control. In particular, I
realized that I want to 'step one level back' and include the parent
directory of my current repo, so that the new repo will have the
current directory as a child, and all the sibling directories will
also become part of the repository. What is the easiest way to
accomplish this while maintiaining my repository history?
Specifically, I have a directory 'abcd'. Under that I have 'models',
'forms', 'pages'. 'Currently only 'pages' is in git. Now I want
'abcd' and everything under it in git.
