on Linux I'm using the config option url..insteadOf feature to clone
certain (very big) submodules from a local mirror instead of from remote.
The configuration is something like
insteadOf = git@remotehost:bigrepo.git
Cloning this repo with
git clone git@remotehost:bigrepo.git
works fine, it is cloning from my local repo instead of from the remote one.
But: I was expecting the 'git clone' call to take into account that it
is cloning a local repository and create hard links to the packs of my
local mirror repository, but instead it copies the whole repo just as it
was a remote repository. This should get fixed, this 'git clone' call
should detect that it is cloning a local repository and create hard
links to the *.pack files.
When cloning the local mirror directly with
git clone /home/sampleuser/mirrors/bigrepo.git
'git clone' automatically creates hard links to the local mirrors *.pack
