- I installed etckeeper
- I decided to track e.g. shorewall firewall configuration as its own git repository. I think I wanted it to be easier to look at specific configuration changes. I decided I did not need etckeeper any more and uninstalled it. So no conflict, except...
- While re-considering etckeeper, I notice I didn't actually remove
Before I realized, I would have thought that
git init would refuse to create a nested git repository.
If I simply resumed using etckeeper, I'd be concerned that the outer git could get bloated tracking the inner .git directories. Alternatively, it might ignore all the files in the directories which are separate git repositories.
So I'm curious, what could possibly go wrong?
