I have two git repos,
B under separate paths.
There is a sub-folder in one repo (
A/subfolder) that contains some data files. On my local machine I have a symbolic link in
B to access these files. This way I do not have to maintain two separate folders with identical contents. It works great.
The problem is that when I push these repos to github, the symbolic links in
B do not work on other machines (as expected). What is the best way to handle this so that:
1) I only have to maintain one physical directory on my local machine;
2) Each git repo will contain the physical contents of
subfolderso that users could clone either repo without issues;
3) When I pull from the repo to my local machine, it does not create a duplicate copy of the files in
