Details

The 'repo gitc-init' command is ran to initialize a new GITC client for use with the GITC file system.

This command will setup the client directory, initialize repo, just like repo init does, and then downloads the manifest collection and installs it in the .repo/directory of the GITC client.

Once this is done, a GITC manifest is generated by pulling the HEAD SHA for each project and generates the properly formatted XML file and installs it as .manifest in the GITC client directory.

The -c argument is required to specify the GITC client name.

The optional -f argument can be used to specify the manifest file to use for this GITC client.
