Re: Bug report: git clone with dest




Hello Johannes, Jeff,

I cloned git's codebase, applied the four patches on master, built and
tested on Ubuntu Trusty. (After verifying that master indeed exhibits
this behaviour on Linux as well. Just checking).
Seems to work fine.
I also looked at the code. Most of the patched lines relate to tests,
and the one for clone.c seems reasonable to me. Added tests seem to
have very good coverage too.

I qualify everything I had written above by saying that it's my first
time ever looking at Git's source code.
