Commit unavailable if .git is 'fake symlink'

Reported by Carlos Lenz | May 1st, 2011 @ 04:25 PM

I have a .git file with something like this:

gitdir: /path/to/git/repo

Why?
Dropbox stores my working tree, but I don't want it tracking .git.

I followed this instructions:

The .git directory is allowed to be a symlink. Or a file like so

   gitdir: /path/to/git/repo

for symlink-challenged operating systems.

And command-line git is fine with it, but gitx considers it read only.

    Much thanks to you for the interesting article. I figure we should to have the capacity to do this with the directions that Git gives us. A portion of these are somewhat cumbersome, however this can in any event give us a beginning stage for investigating this issue. I was simply doing home work help, my new dissertation writing service is committed to all understudy.
