Do a “git export” like “svn export”
Probably the simplest way to achieve this is with git archive. If you really need just the expanded tree you can do something like this.
git archive master | tar -x -C /your/path/to/export
Most of the time that I need to ‘export’ something from git, I want a compressed archive in any case so I do something like this.
git archive master | bzip2 >source-tree.tar.bz2
git help archive for more details, it’s quite flexible.
