Hm, should this be the default?
In principle, I would expect
git checkout -- .
to make the worktree match the index, respecting the sparse checkout.
And something like
git checkout --widen -- .
to change the sparse checkout pattern. But of course it is easily
possible that I am missing some details of how sparse checkout is
used in practice.
What do you think?
