Re: [jgit-dev] Checking out a single file


I suggest this can be solved by teaching DirCacheCheckout to accept
filters for the treewalk. Then we could set a filter which matches
only those paths you are interested in. That's only a small addition
and we anyhow need filters to implement things like 'git checkout
<commit> -- <paths>'
