Re: [PATCH] worktree add: be tolerant of corrupt worktrees




Hi Nguyễn,

Thanks for the quick response. While I leave the code to the experts,
I can confirm that restoring the missing directory (but no content in
it) does allow "worktree add" to function again.

One point may be worth clarifying...

...as I mentioned, from my experiments, trying a "worktree prune" did
NOT resolve the issue for me. But since I don't know the logic that
prune uses, there may have been some other reason for this.

Thanks again, Shaheed
