  • Why did you choose git?

    • I'm not into the religious stuff and I'm content for people to use whatever works for them.

      First, Randal forced me to use git. He got into it very early, and at Stonehenge we use it for anything new. For the Mastering Perl stuff, Allison previously hosted a subversion repo for me on her personal box since she was the book editor, but she moved all of her stuff to a hosted solution. I had the repo sitting on my local box and wanted to make it public, so I changed it to git which I was already using.

      Second, I

    If you go to the man page here ( search for "git filter-branch --subdirectory-filter" and you should find the solution.

    I've used git svn several times, and git filter-branch a c

    • Okay, that was pretty easy. Now I just have to figure out how to make the filtered repos smaller. I think they are still carrying around a lot of meta baggage because the filtered repo is still about 3/4 the size of the full repo, and that's pretty bad for a huge repo.

      Thanks :)
