Make it so clone can be based off of an existing workspace, including all the mappings in it. Or, make clone work with a workspace mapping xml file.

It would be nice if there was a way to keep the mapping info with the repo, so that it's there when you clone it. Maybe a ".git-tfs-mappings.xml" file in the root?


Workspace mapping file would be great. Not always TFS structure fits good to Git.
Sometimes it's necessary to exclude some folders, or change relative paths etc.

@spraints I thought one or two times about that. I found the idea interesting at the beginning but, tell me if I'm wrong, with this mode, not branches are possible, no?

Yeah, I think you'd give up TFS branches if you used the workspace mapping.
