The problem with multi-level remote names is that we use the same delimiter as in the ref namespace: '/'. So, obviously, there's a lot of room for confusion. I wonder if we should banish multi-level remotes altogether though: is it possible that they will be useful to someone in the future? -- 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
