Subject: [PATCH 0/2] git clone with --separate-git-dir destroys existing directory content
Date: Wed,  1 Jul 2020 11:36:51 +0200
Message-ID: <20200701093653.3706-1-ben@wijen.net> (raw)

Hi,

I found an issue with git clone, when using --separate-git-dir and that directory already exists,
it's content is destroyed.

I have created a patch set on origin/next, but (as I have learned this the hard way) please let me know
if this needs to be backported...
