+git-init-db(1)
+==============
+v0.1, May 2005
+
+NAME
+----
+git-init-db - Creates an empty git object database
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-init-db'
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+This simply creates an empty git object database - basically a `.git`
+directory and `.git/object/??/` directories.
+
+If the object storage directory is specified via the 'GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY'
+environment variable then the sha1 directories are created underneath -
+otherwise the default `.git/objects` directory is used.
+
+"git-init-db" won't hurt an existing repository.
