Gaaak! Let me again plead for supporting a post-clone hook rather than inventing some crazy config-file syntax that is becoming ever more complicated. A post-clone hook would make all of these things that have been suggested pretty easy, and would also open lots of other possibilities, all without further changes in git.core, like (I'm just brainstorming here): #! /bin/sh remote="$1" ln -s $(HOME)/.githooks/* .git/hooks case "$(git --version)" in *.1..*) git config include.path "$(HOME)/.gitinclude ;; esac echo "(cd $(pwd) && git gc)" >>"$(HOME)/cron.weekly/git-gc" case "$remote" in *.work.com/*) git config user.email m...@work.com ;; *.github.com/*) git config user.email m...@debian.org ;; *) echo '### Remember to set user.email ###' ;; esac Michael -- Michael Haggerty mhag...@alum.mit.edu http://softwareswirl.blogspot.com/ -- 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
