I've been running the git filter-branch described here
. But the resulting history includes at least two extraneous commits, i.e.,
commits that appear to affect no files in the subdirectory of interest.
(The corresponding commits in the original history do affect files, but
those files are in another subdirectory.)
I also noticed the occurrence of several "duplicate parent" errors during
the git filter-branch. This page
says that those errors can produce an incomplete new history, so I'm now
wondering if, in addition to including extraneous commits, my new history
might also be missing some. Along with this page
the page says that the "duplicate parent" errors should disappear if "git
filter-branch" is first run with no filter. But that didn't work for me.
