I see, so you are indeed nesting. >> So is your ~/doc/.mrconfig tracked by a repository?

True - I just did a quick experiment to confirm that the subdirectory containing the nested repo shows up as an untracked file until you add it (which registers it as a submodule) or ignore it. So if you are not using submodules then presumably you are adding your nested repos to .gitignore, or just simply tolerating the noise in 'git status' output? _______________________________________________ vcs-home mailing list email@example.com http://lists.madduck.net/listinfo/vcs-home
