I'm pulling a bunch of company git repositories from an older host to our company git server. I started by just
git clone-ing the old repos into the repositories directory on the new server. Soon we're going to point DNS for the old host to the new server.
My question is this: should I make the new repositories bare repos before this switch happens, or can they function as they are (normal, non-bare repositories with
.git/ directories)? I'm guessing the former, but I'd like someone who actually knows to confirm this.
