Wouldn't another way :- ~/games/flare-game$git fetch --depth=n (incrementally increasing the depth each time) work out ? I know it would be very long to do the whole depth as there are over 553 commits in there till the time the magic number of 553 commits are reached. Maybe do jumps of 100 commits in one go .
One of the downsides with rsync as given there is it would give a corrupted clone if somebody is committing something to the repo. I'm just checking out a repo. so shouldn't have to wait. -- Regards, Shirish Agarwal शिरीष अग्रवाल My quotes in this email licensed under CC 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/ http://flossexperiences.wordpress.com 065C 6D79 A68C E7EA 52B3 8D70 950D 53FB 729A 8B17 -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
