Honor --depth during repo init If a user is asking for a shallow clone of the repos, they probably expect a shallow clone of the manifest repo too. For very large manifest repos, this can be a huge space and time savings. For one real-world repo, a 'repo init --no-tags --current-branch' used 350MB of disk space and took 7 minutes. Adding --depth 1 and this change reduced it to 10MB and 2.5 minutes. Change-Id: I6fa662e174e623ede8861efc862ce26d65d4958d
Repo is a tool built on top of Git. Repo helps manage many Git repositories, does the uploads to revision control systems, and automates parts of the development workflow. Repo is not meant to replace Git, only to make it easier to work with Git. The repo command is an executable Python script that you can put anywhere in your path.
