I’m pretty new to using git and was wondering if it’s ok to copy a Git repository with common UNIX commands (like
untag), rather than through
I’m in the situation where I have a production environment (python virtual) that some code checked out in git in it. I’m wondering if it's a bad idea from a git perspective to copy down the whole environment using a
tar or something. This approach would be convenient for making a quick copy of a codebase/environment.
My concern is that maybe git clone associates some unique id with the working copy that could cause conflicts if two working copies exist where one was filesystem-copied from the other.
