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.
