Antlink: Manage a tree of git or other VC repositories with funky symlinks

antlink

Antlink handles trees of repositories, where a meta-repository can point to other sub-repositories, some of which are checked out ("cloned") or not. Repositories stored at the same place can live in a "site", simplifying their discovery. antlink's goal is to make groups of git (or other) repositories discoverable without requiring everyone check out everything.

Pre-built versions for RPM (Fedora, CentOS, REHL): see https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/johnh/antlink/

Why use antlink? Why not use something else (git submodule, git subtree, git annex, Android repo, svn)? Good questions… the short answer is: none of them do things quite right. A much more detailed discussion is in the antlink manual page.
