      Make a bare GIT repository. That is, instead of creating
      <directory> and placing the administrative files in
      <directory>/.git, make the <directory> itself the $GIT_DIR.
      This obviously implies the -n because there is nowhere to
      check out the working tree. Also the branch heads at the
      remote are copied directly to corresponding local branch
      heads, without mapping them to refs/remotes/origin/. When
      this option is used, neither remote-tracking branches nor the
      related configuration variables are created.

namely:
