  • More complex history (with multiple holes), can be reconstructed with the grafts file and git filter branch.

    Secondly, note that I still haven't figured out a sane default for the tree importing WRT .gitignore. If there's a global gitignore in ~/.gitconfig then that gets applied (perhaps wrongly).

    Many times people ship files they don't want in VCS and vice versa. Obviously for unshipped files there's nothing gitpan could do but in the other direction git filter branch would be useful for pruning out unwanted files.

    another alternative is using interactive rebase to edit the gitpan imported commits that introduce the unwanted files (for instance for MANIFEST that would probably be the first one). git rm --cached MANIFEST && git commit --amend -C HEAD should do the trick. If there are any other versions of a file later in history that would result in an easy to resolve conflict.

    • Global .gitignore, AHHH!!! I totally forgot about that. I should have gitpan ignore the ignore file.
