- Subject: 1-800-GIT-HELP question
Firstly many thanks to all who have worked on the git migration and also
for the offer of help :-)
I'm seeking a little advice on an efficient way to combine the gm2 git
repro with the gcc git repro. When gcc was using subversion I had a
script which untared the gm2 git over the subversion, applied local
patches to the gcc tree and then it was ready for use. I could git diff
in the gm2 tree and svn diff in the gcc tree - etc.
I wonder if a similar model can be achieved now gcc uses git?
In essence the gm2 front end adds three subtrees to gcc
currently these are all in one repro
I'm a little cautious of choosing an initial working model without
knowing the implications. There seem to be many possible solutions
(subtree, submodule) to name but two.
Disk space is not a concern, the time to recreate a working tree is more
