Im sorry, but that was a total misunderstanding. You said git-splitter
is like git-subtree but adds a command for reversing the process. My
question was: What kept you from adding that to git-subtree (rather than
redoing stiff that git-subtree does)?
I just assumed that reversing the process of splitting must be joining.
It may very well be that git-splitter does things differently, i.e. that
there are more differences than just added functionality (compared to
git-subtree), but that is not clear from the announcement.
