        Also it's git, fork the repo delete the other bits and move your desired project to the head of it. It's only a bit of rebase and patience to merge them back together if you need to.

          They seem to have had quite a bit of debate on that particular subject. https://llvm.org/docs/Proposals/GitH...e-repositories
          It seems their decision was not taken lightly.

          Hopefully this year git will learn to do partial clones https://www.git-scm.com/docs/partial-clone then this becomes a non issue.
