If I understand, you seem to want to only merge in a certain directory of a different repository, and you want it to be a subtree in your repository. I am going to call the directory of interest in the project.git
path_of_interest_in_project and call the destination in your repo
Try adding the remote project.git as a remote, then checking out one of its branches locally. Then use
git-subtree split to split out just the directory of project.git you are interested in. After that merge it into your repo using subtree merge.
git remote add project [email protected]:kicaj/projectname.git git branch project_master project/master
The branch project_master should now store the entire history of your project.git repo.
Then you’ll need to use the
git checkout -f project_master git subtree split --squash --prefix=path_of_interest_in_project -b temp_branch
There should now be a branch called
temp_branch containing just the directory you are interested in. Now you can perform a
git-subtree-merge to bring it all into your repo.
git checkout -f master git subtree merge --allow-unrelated-histories --prefix=directory_destination_path temp_branch
This should merge in the temp_branch into your master branch.
