SourceTree support for different git-dir and work-tree directories?


I've got a 'detached' repo steup where the git-dir is outside of the work-tree. This is because the work-tree is a mounted drive which will only store certain types of files, so I can't put git files there. Is there any way of getting SourceTree to wok with this kind of setup? Thanks!

Also looking for this functionality.



There's no way to customize (for example) "git add" command.


Nothing still after 6 years?

Was this ever in feature request?
