git-subtree

git-subtree allows subprojects to be included within a sub-directory of a main project, optionally including the sub-project's entire history.

Installation

Choose one of the following ways to install git-subtree:

  1. Copy the file git-subtree.sh to where all other git scripts are stored (git --exec-path will tell you this).
  2. Run install.sh in a Git-enabled shell (that's "Git Bash" on Windows).
  3. Run make install in a Cygwin-enabled shell.

Any one of these actions makes the git subtree command available (note: space instead of dash).

To additionally install the man page:

make doc
cp git-subtree.1 /usr/share/man/man1/

Usage

See git-subtree.txt for details.
