That is part of the design of git. It is a _distributed_ system. Perhaps
what you really want would be something like Subversion, in which a person
checks out only those files they want to work on.

With git, each person is supposed to get all the files and the entire
modification history of them. One plus of this is being able to be
disconnected from any other system. You could be vacationing on a deserted
island and continue to do work. And then share it when you come back.
