Sadly, this doesnt work for me, because I have
excludesfile = /Users/marshall/.gitignore
autocrlf = input
in my .gitconfig file.
git -c core.autocrlf=false -c core.eol=crlf clone git_at_[hidden]:boostorg/boost.git --branch master --single-branch /Sources/boost/releases/windows
Cloning into '/Sources/boost/releases/windows'...
error: core.autocrlf=input conflicts with core.eol=crlf
fatal: bad config file line 8 in /Users/marshall/.gitconfig
which is really bizarre, because Im setting core.autocrlf right there on the command line.
