"git pull" doesn't respect --work-tree parameter

Alexey Zakhlestin
I am trying to use the following command:

git '--git-dir=/path/to/repository/.git' '--work-tree=/path/to/repository' pull

and get this error:
"git-pull cannot be used without a working tree"

I get the same error, if I try to use corresponding environment variables


looks like a bug, because I can, successfully, use "git status" with
the same --git-dir and --work-tree parameters

It works fine for me. What's the result of

git '--git-dir=/path/to/repository/.git'
'--work-tree=/path/to/repository' --git-dir
git '--git-dir=/path/to/repository/.git'
'--work-tree=/path/to/repository' --is-inside-work-tree
git '--git-dir=/path/to/repository/.git'
'--work-tree=/path/to/repository' --show-toplevel

?

Also what version of git are you using?

No directory given for --git-dir.

Unknown option: --is-inside-work-tree

> git '--git-dir=/path/to/repository/.git'

Unknown option: --show-toplevel

You added an extra --git-dir without an argument at the end of
the command. Remove it and try again.

Considering the successes of the wars on alcohol, poverty, drugs and
terror, I think we should give some serious thought to declaring war
on peace.

Sorry I forgot the command name (rev-parse). The full command should
be "git --git-dir=... --work-tree=... rev-parse <option>" where option
is --git-dir, --is-inside-work-tree, --show-toplevel. Can you please
try again?

1) returns correct path:
/Users/indy/Documents/Sources/_mine/midgard/mvc/_rdf/midgardmvc_core/.git
2) false
3) returns correct path, again:
/Users/indy/Documents/Sources/_mine/midgard/mvc/_rdf/midgardmvc_core

just to make myself clear: $PWD is another path, not related to repository path

OK. git-pull does not automatically move to worktree (while git-status
does) and thus won't work when $PWD is outside worktree. I remember
there's a similar report this year. I'll see if I can make a patch for
it.

Thank you for your report.
