    Dear diary, on Wed, Apr 13, 2005 at 11:25:04AM CEST, I got a letter

    It's fine to share the objects database. If you want to share the
    directory cache, you are doing something wrong, though. What do you need
    it for?

    I'm working on that right now. (Well, I wish I would, if other things
    didn't keep distracting me.)

    The idea is to have a command which will do something like:

    mkdir .git
    ln -s $origtree/heads $origtree/objects $origtree/tags .git
    cp $origtree/HEAD .git
    cd ..
    read-tree $(tree-id)

    Voila. Now you have a new tree with almost no current neither future

    This will be used to do the out-tree merges. Command for user to do this
    will likely also make it a regular branch, doing

    ln -s $(realpath git/HEAD) .git/heads/branchname

    so that you can reference to it easily from your other branches.

    Would this do what you want?

    98% of the time I am right. Why worry about the other 3%.
