I have a fairly esoteric situation, but I suspect I'm probably not the only
one who is attempting to do something along these lines. I have a software
product that consists of a number of Git repositories, each with its own
group of engineers working on it (think of MATLAB (R) with its plethora of
toolboxes). When we deliver software to customers, we ideally would have a
superproject that references each repo such that we can just have bare
repositories that are delivered (i.e. zip up the superproject after
removing all source code), and then on-site the customer runs a program
that performs a "reset --hard" to get all the source code back. Easy
enough. (Before everyone asks, it's because the source code occupies
several hundred megabytes, so having everything compressed in the repo is
convenient for keeping the media count low.)
The rub comes in that we do not want our customers to see all of our
development history (and our sometimes not-so-professional commit
remarks). I've read about a shallow clone (i.e. --depth 1), but it is my
understanding these types of repos cannot be used with git-bundle. It does
seem to follow everything else though, in that updates that occur upstream
(i.e. bugfixes to a major revision) will be successfully applied with a
pull or fetch. The other issue is the --depth flag doesn't seem to be
supported with the submodule command.
Anyone have any thoughts on how to accomplish all this?
