Did you mean "Checking out 'test'"? > Checking out files: ...% > New worktree HEAD is now at c2a499e6c Merge branch 'jh/partial-clone' > > Would we want to omit the "Checking out ..." here? I'm leaning > towards yes, but dunno? To which "Checking out" message do you refer, the one showing the branch name or the one showing the checkout progress? I'd probably agree that showing both "Creating" and "Checkout out" is overkill. However, see my response to your "fixup!" patch in which I explore the idea that unifying "Checking out 'branch' and "Creating branch" messages may be a good idea and get us out of some UI jams which seem to be cropping up. : https://public-inbox.org/git/20180325134947.25828-1-t.gumme...@gmail.com/T/#m5d38b0c6427609e8c36aa6af83d518791c1e1581 > - Original dwim with --detach flag > > $ git worktree add --detach ../test > Checking out 'c2a499e6c' > Checking out files: ...% > New worktree HEAD is now at c2a499e6c Merge branch 'jh/partial-clone' > > Looking at this, I'm not sure what's best here.

Taking  into account, this might become something like: $ git worktree add --detach ../test Preparing worktree (detached HEAD c2a499e6c) Checking out files: ...% New worktree HEAD is now at c2a499e6c Gobbledygook > I als don't think it gives too much context compared to just "Checking > out files: ...%".

Fair enough observation. The idea suggested in  may keep output to a reasonable amount.
