Subject: [PATCH] git clone depth of 0 not possible.
Date: Mon,  7 Jan 2013 19:06:35 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1357581996-17505-1-git-send-email-stefanbeller@googlemail.com> (raw)

Currently it is not possible to have a shallow depth of
just 0, i.e. only one commit in that repository after cloning.
The minimum number of commits is 2, caused by depth=1.

I had no good idea how to add this behavior to git clone as
the depth variable in git_transport_options struct (file transport.h)
uses value 0 for another meaning, so it would have need changes at
all places, where the transport options depth is being used 
(e.g. fetch)

So I documented the current behavior, see attached patch.
