introduce GIT_WORK_TREE to specify the work tree
setup_gdg is used as abbreviation for setup_git_directory_gently. The work tree can be specified using the environment variable GIT_WORK_TREE and the config option core.worktree (the environment variable has precendence over the config option). Additionally there is a command line option --work-tree which sets the environment variable. setup_gdg does the following now: GIT_DIR unspecified repository in .git directory parent directory of the .git directory is used as work tree, GIT_WORK_TREE is ignored GIT_DIR unspecified repository in cwd GIT_DIR is set to cwd see the cases with GIT_DIR specified what happens next and also see the note below GIT_DIR specified GIT_WORK_TREE/core.worktree unspecified cwd is used as work tree GIT_DIR specified GIT_WORK_TREE/core.worktree specified the specified work tree is used Note on the case where GIT_DIR is unspecified and repository is in cwd: GIT_WORK_TREE is used but is_inside_git_dir is always true. I did it this way because setup_gdg might be called multiple times (e.g. when doing alias expansion) and in successive calls setup_gdg should do the same thing every time. Meaning of is_bare/is_inside_work_tree/is_inside_git_dir: (1) is_bare_repository A repository is bare if core.bare is true or core.bare is unspecified and the name suggests it is bare (directory not named .git). The bare option disables a few protective checks which are useful with a working tree. Currently this changes if a repository is bare: updates of HEAD are allowed git gc packs the refs the reflog is disabled by default (2) is_inside_work_tree True if the cwd is inside the associated working tree (if there is one), false otherwise. (3) is_inside_git_dir True if the cwd is inside the git directory, false otherwise. Before this patch is_inside_git_dir was always true for bare repositories. When setup_gdg finds a repository git_config(git_default_config) is always called. This ensure that is_bare_repository makes use of core.bare and does not guess even though core.bare is specified. inside_work_tree and inside_git_dir are set if setup_gdg finds a repository. The is_inside_work_tree and is_inside_git_dir functions will die if they are called before a successful call to setup_gdg.
