I think we have a problem … or at least I had
and I’m not quite sure if this is „working as designed“
but I’m sure it „should not work as it did“.

Because? It pruned a lot of files and even the local repository.
by pull
by giving another repository URL instead of a known remote

While working in a subpath of my homedir
(that is a git repository itself, without any changes in worktree or index: 
https://bitbucket.org/childnode/marcel/ )
I wanted to clone another repository … but yeah … it’s late for me today and I 
in s.th. `git pull 

next … all committed files are zapped and the repository given has been checked 
out in my home directory 🤯👻

what? Shouldn’t this just fail? Why can I pass another remote to pull?

🙏 god any untracked / ignored files are still alive

a, yeh, I’m on a mac 
(for any git configuration … have a look in my repository 

the console out was:

Successfully rebased and updated refs/heads/master.


trying to fix this up by doing another pull failed:
-bash:$ git remote -v
origin  g...@bitbucket.org:childnode/marcel.git (fetch)
origin  g...@bitbucket.org:childnode/marcel.git (push)

-bash:$ git pull
fatal: refusing to merge unrelated histories

-bash:$ git pull g...@bitbucket.org:childnode/marcel.git
From bitbucket.org:childnode/marcel
 * branch            HEAD       -> FETCH_HEAD
fatal: refusing to merge unrelated histories


these messages and the fact that it doesn’t work backward let me think I ran 
a collision? really?

revlog looks a bit strange too
04f3066 (HEAD -> master) HEAD@{0}: pull 
g...@private.gitlab.instance.example.com:aGroup/repository.git: checkout 
04f3066d03e09323c7341c472be4c45ea5e3a4ff: returning to refs/heads/master
04f3066 (HEAD -> master) HEAD@{1}: pull 
g...@private.gitlab.instance.example.com:aGroup/repository.git: checkout 
88ff8d0 (origin/master, origin/HEAD) HEAD@{2}: pull --rebase=preserve: checkout 
88ff8d0c28bb90dfde3aea9e6c39bb551bea8ca8: returning to refs/heads/master

where 88ff8d0 was the latest from marcel.git
and logs look like the pulled repository is like an orphan aside my original 


P.S: I reverted by `$ git reset 88ff8d0 && git checkout -- .`
