Introduce "sparse checkout"
With skip-worktree bit, you can manually set it to unwanted files, then remove them: you would have the so-called sparse checkout. The disadvantages are: - Porcelain tools are not aware of this. Everytime you do an operation that may update working directory, skip-worktree may be cleared out. You have to set them again. - You still have to remove skip-worktree'd files manually, which is boring and ineffective. These will be addressed in the following patches. This patch gives an idea what is "sparse checkout" in Documentation/git-read-tree.txt. This file is chosen instead of git-checkout.txt because it is quite technical and user-unfriendly. I'd expect git-checkout.txt to have something when Porcelain support is done. Signed-off-by: Nguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy <[email protected]> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <[email protected]>
