How do I export a source tree repo without the metadata?

In SVN I used to right click and export the repo and the project would export at a smaller size without SVN metadata. Is this possible in sourcetree git?

Thanks,

-Gabe

Git does a great job of this with the git archive comment. Link below. Maybe someday the SourceTree folks will add a menu option for it, but the capability is already there on the command line.

The 'Archive' feature is available in the Mac version already, but it's still on the TODO catch-up list for Windows. It just maps to the command line 'git archive' as linked by Kyle just earlier: https://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-archive.html. We're adding missing Mac features to Windows as fast as we can :)

What is the status this demand ?

Thanks

Any update on the missing feature in the Windows version ?
