Sorry, somehow I just missed that, and then I noticed just a little
before you sent out your email.
I'm having the worst time putting together a mental model of how git
works, and the documentation is spotty enough that it hasn't been
helpful. So I am wading through the code. It seems every time I turn
a corner there is another rough spot.
I guess I was expecting to pull from one tree into another unrelated
tree. Getting a tree with two heads and then be able to merge them
A couple of questions.
1) Does git-clone-script when packed copy the entire repository
or just take a couple of slices of the tree where you have
2) Is there a way for a pack to create deltas against objects
that are not in the tree? For a dumb repository making incremental
changes this is ideal.
