For a big project it would be really nice to organize git repositories into the hierarchical tree. Like


I have hacked in a small patch for myself, but it will be really nice to have a proper implementation upstream. http://dside.dyndns.org/projects/patches.dir/trac-ds-repotree.diff

Patch and image links are no longer valid. Would you kindly attach them to this ticket?

Thanks for providing the patch! I'm very interested in this feature. Can you share any experience you had with this patch?

E.g. I'm curious if there are any downsides to using /? (Given that that character can not appear in directory names.) How do you create such a repository? Are there no problems when checking out such a repo? Or how does that typically work?

Would e.g. _ be a useful alternative? (Or a similar approach as used by format=group and TitleIndex, where common WikiPageName prefixes are grouped hierarchically.)

The structure is built around directories. For example, the directory structure represented on the screenshot includes an ufo directory which contains number of repositories as subdirectories. The / is not actually used in the repository names. The / is only displayed because it was easier to make a patch this way. So, it would not influence access to the repos in any way.
