I have spent quite a bit of time getting my home directory synced with my GitHub repository and I am satisfied with what is being tracked remotely.
I would like to start fresh locally (git init), then clone/pull my remote repository to my local machine.
If I just do a git init, what damage would that do to my remote repository if any. What exactly would I be losing at the local repository that would not be gained back by clone/pull after the git init? Would you recommend that I do this to get a fresh start?
Also, would git clone be the right thing to do to bring the files back to the local machine after the git init?
Does this make sense?
