Getting started with Git - pull into local repository from a remote TFS server?
I started here, by creating a new local Git repository:
It seems that Visual Studio supports most of the common Git operations. However, I cannot pull the whole folder structure from a remote TFS server. I found a way to push changes to a TFS server, just not the other way around:
Is there a way to do the initial pull? Preferably without installing any 3rd party software/tools - my company is really anxious about putting any unauthorized apps on the workstation. If not, what are my options?
Also, are there any downsides of this approach? Known issues, etc.
A couple words on why I need this. We have a development branch which gets locked every day for several hours, or more, to allow for build or merge to happen. You can't commit during this time. Also more than one commit per day is considered bad practice here. That's why making another TFS branch would not help much. And no, I don't like using shelvesets. Therefore I would prefer to be able to commit as often as needed, without thinking about code being in a perfectly working state.
I'd like to fetch changesets (to display them somewhere) from a git repository w/o cloning it on my local machine, just like svn does (svn log http://...). Is it something you can do using git? I've l
