The concept of "fake bare git" comes from the fact that the GIT_DIR is names e.g. vim.git (instead of .git), which is like a bare repo, but core.bare is set to false (hence "fake"), because there is a worktree, albeit it's detached. I think "detached worktree repository" also covers it and might be a better name. Here is how to create one: Create a *non-bare* repo as you would always do, but in a temp directory (or directly in ~ if you wish): mkdir mytempworktree && cd mytempworktree git init git remote add origin ssh://server/path/to/repo git config branch.master.remote origin git config branch.master.merge refs/heads/master Or if the repo already exists remotely, clone it into a temp directory (or ~): mkdir mytempworktree && cd mytempworktree git clone git://git.madduck.net/madduck/pub/etc/vim.git Then move the GIT_DIR to the final location and set core.worktree to point to the worktree (~ in our case) git config core.worktree ../../ # ~/.fgits/vim.git/../../ → ~ mv .git ~/.fgits/vim.git and possibly move checked out files to the worktree: mv * .* ~ To work with the repo, make sure to export GIT_WORK_TREE=$HOME GIT_DIR=$HOME/.fgits/repo.git or: alias git="git --work-tree=$HOME --git-dir=$HOME/.fgits/repo.git") Essentially, this is what my vcsh function does for me: http://git.madduck.net/v/etc/zsh.git/blob/HEAD:/vcsh -- martin | http://madduck.net/ | http://two.sentenc.es/ "glaube heißt nicht wissen wollen, was wahr ist." - friedrich nietzsche spamtraps: madduck.bo...@madduck.net
