It's precisely because the behavior may change that they are labeled as experimental. I have 15 of experience using git, and I have tried to use them but to me they are too cumbersome. For example I would expect this to work: git restore @~ -- file But it doesn't, I need to specify `-s @~`. git checkout is more user-friendly to me, so purpose of git restore is defeated. If the interface is changed, perhaps it will be useful to me. It isn't at the moment. Cheers. -- Felipe Contreras
