I don't know the history in detail, but I know the restriction against pushing to non-bare repositories is relatively recent. Maybe the part that was new in 1.7 was the config option that lets the repository know that it's bare and can therefore accept pushes? I can't think of any other reason for the bare/non-bare distinction to be kept in the repository itself. -PJ Gehm's Corollary to Clark's Law: Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
