Hi, I know people which have a separate directory for every branch. In this case it doesn't make sense to download the whole repo with all branches. So I guess the "--single-branch" option is the solution in that case!?! But I'm wondering about it's behaviour.
# first clone the branch of the repo $git clone --single-branch --branch master myrepo ./master $cd master # now calling "git branch -a" to see what I have $git branch -a *master remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/master remotes/origin/master # fine, now pulling from origin $git pull >From myrepo * [new branch] foo -> origin/foo * [new branch] bar -> origin/bar ... Hm? # looking again to my branches $git branch -a *master remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/master remotes/origin/master remotes/origin/bar remotes/origin/foo ... After cloning (or fetching), I now have all branches which is not what I want, because I'm only interested in the one I've cloned. I think it's not very useful for the use-case of having one directory for one branch. $git version git version 188.8.131.525.g6b149ce Thanks -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
