I would like to have git clone respect GIT_DIR (and --git-dir) so I
can clone multiple repos into the same working directory (I know there
was another request for this[1]).

The pattern here is big projects that are modularized into multiple
git repositories, but supposed to be overlaid over a common directory

I would like to be able to tell my users that they can simply do:

git clone --git-dir=_/git/module1/.git module1-url
git clone --git-dir=_/git/module2/.git module2-url

which will overlay the files from both modules into the current
directory, which from git's perspective is the work-tree for both

To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in
the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org
