Hello,

I see over the last year (on the web and in this mailing list) there
was some activity to extend subtree with a .gittrees file and
push-all/pull-all commands.

Perhaps I missed it, but looking through the latest git code on the
github mirror I can't find any reference to the .gittrees file or
these commands.

Does anyone know the status of this feature? Was it decided that this
was a bad idea and the feature has been rejected? Or is this a feature
still "cooking"...which will likely make it into git mainline at some
point?

I ask because I would like to use something like this to be able to
keep a combined repository and separate project repositories in sync.
Of course, if it was decided that this feature is fundamentally a bad
idea then I will do something different.

Any pointers would be a big help.

thanks in advance,
Gareth Collins

Still no answer to this? I suggest that you CC the persons discussing
this the last time.

Paul Campbell has been working hard on multiple branches in 
https://github.com/kemitix/git
But work appears to have stopped. :(

There is also a recent blogpost:
http://ruleant.blogspot.nl/2013/06/git-subtree-module-with-gittrees-config.html

Thanks for your interest, I'd love to see this get integrated....

Hi,

Sorry for the delay. Not been monitoring the list lately.

I'm afraid work stopped for two reasons. Lack of interest from the
list was the main one. I understand subtree isn't used much and
subsequently there wasn't much interest in reviewing the patches I was
putting out. As a result I lost interest.

It seems to be hard to get anything done on such a busy list. :( 
Especially when the maintainers lack time/attention for such a contrib.

I think including it in the contrib folder has not done us any good.

Maybe we should just focus on maintaining a separate repo, which could 
be based of https://github.com/apenwarr/git-subtree (which has already 
92 forks, including one of mine). And obviously integrate all the recent 
work from Paul.

I agree with the idea of maintaining git-subtree outside of contrib.
However, you would need the commitment of apenwarr, or whoever hosts
the master repo, to merge in any pull requests or we are no further
forward. (apenwarr appears not to have been active on github since
early May).
