- Subject: Git attributes are read from head branch instead of given branch when using git archive
git archive --remote="URL" branchname > branchname.tar.gz is not
reading .gitattributes file from the given branch but from HEAD. More
specifically export-ignore lines in the target branch are ignored.
The remote is using git protocol and it's served by Gitlab. I use git
Is this a git issue? In that case is this a bug or a known limitation?
