[PATCH v1 00/11] And new command "restore"




This is the companion of "git switch" [1] and is based on that topic.
This command peforms the "checkout paths" from git-checkout, git-reset
and also has a third mode to reset only worktree, leaving the index
alone.

For new people not aware of previous discussions, this command is
supposed to be a friendlier replacement for "git checkout" and
hopefully fixes some warts that have grown over the time in git-checkout.
For this reason, the last patch starts to recommend "git restore"
everywhere.

For old people, I'm surprised nobody reacts to the command rename from
restore-files to restore. "restore" vs "reset" is certainly confusing.
My hope was to remove "common porcelain" status from reset, but I
probably will not succeed in doing that.

Some open issues from the last discussion [2]

- intent-to-add support. This will come but maybe later.

- --index has a different meaning in git-apply. I don't have a good
  suggestion except "yeah we have two different worlds now, the old
  and the new one"
