MacVim Git repository update
- Hi all,
I am about to push the new Git repo which has rewritten history.
Anybody pulling from the repo will have to take extra care next time
you pull because of this. I think the easiest way to update your repo
is to simply clone a new repo (and remove the old repo). This way
you'll get a .git folder which is ~15 MB instead of the current ~110
If you have any local branches you'll have to work a little bit
harder. Kevin Ballard outlined what needs to be done in the thread
"massive git clone". Another alternative to his method is to simply
checkout your local branch, do "git-format-patch master" and then save
the patch series and apply it on a new branch in a newly cloned repo.
If you have any questions, I will do my best to answer them.
In case somebody missed the reason why I had to rewrite the history:
I accidentally added the entire 'runtime/spell' folder to the repo.
This folder is >100 MB so the size of the repo all of a sudden jumped
to well over 100 MB. The only way to undo this mistake was to rewrite
