If there are any install flags for git to be installed silently?

+1 vote

I was wondering if there are any install flags for git to be installed silently and to be able to pre-choose the install options to make it completely silent? Using the standard /S flag for the .exe just seems to launch it as normal.

I think there's a bug in git pull. Doing a git pull in a fresh repository without any commits removes files in the index.


$ mkdir foo
$ cd foo
$ git init
$ touch file1 file2
$ git add file1
$ ls
file1 file2
$ git pull master
$ ls

"file2" is still there, but "file1" was silently removed and no error message was shown.

I want to work on a visualization program for git. I was hoping there was a library that would allow me to monitor a git repo for changes. Consider it like inotify, but for a git repository (in fact, I think it would probably have inotify under the hood).

This hypothetical library would trigger an event any time the repository was modified, i.e. any time the graph that represents history was changed.

Is there such a library? If not, is there a better way to monitor the repository so that I wouldn't need to write it myself? Would anyone else be interested if I wrote it myself?

The use case:
"git submodule update" seems to be inefficient when running sequentially on a large .gitmodules file. Assuming a git forest with over 7K gits it takes hours to complete the update (running on Windows+Cygwin)

If not supported, this feature could be a good candidate for "git submodule" enhancement.
What is your opinion or advice?

I wanted to avoid push if any of the files is deleted from the local git clone area. Can anyone please help me with that?

I am using Stash for repository management.

Is there any reason why 'git clone -b' only takes a branch (from refs/heads/) or a tag (from refs/tags/) ?

Background: At $dayjob we're using some kind of 'hidden' refs (in refs/releases/) to communicate between the 'branch integrator' (who creates the ref in refs/releases/) and the 'build master' who wants to build that ref.

It would be a little easier if the build master could simply say

git clone -b refs/releases/the-release-for-today URL
instead of: git clone... ; cd ... ; git fetch... ; git checkout....

Any answer or even a better idea to solve that is appreciated.
