stg-clone(1)

NAME

stg-clone - Make a local clone of a remote repository

SYNOPSIS

stg clone <repository> <dir>

DESCRIPTION

Clone a git repository into the local directory <dir> (using stg clone) and initialise the local branch "master".

This operation is for example suitable to start working using the "tracking branch" workflow (see stg(1)). Other means to setup an StGit stack are stg init and the --create and --clone commands of stg branch.

The target directory <dir> will be created by this command, and must not already exist.
