Dear git experts,
Recently we try to upgrade ubuntu from 17.10 to 18.04, then we found one inconsistent behavior on git clone.
At 2.14.1 or 2.15.1, if I run command like
- mkdir /tmp/111
- git clone git@xxxxxxxxxx:111/111 /tmp/111
because it will failure, then /tmp/111 will be removed automatically.
However, at latest 2.17.0 which is part of ubuntu 18.04, seems like git clone failure will not auto remove this folder. I notice 2.16.2 and 2.17.0 release note includes this fix. So just wonder to know if prior behavior was think of bug, and this fix has change the behavior.
* "git clone $there $here" is allowed even when here directory exists
as long as it is an empty directory, but the command incorrectly
removed it upon a failure of the operation.
Thanks & Regards
