I am using GutHub since a couple of months so I am still learning a lot about its big advantages.
I have to work on a project which was first developed by someone else a couple of years ago. I was provided with afs location, .git folder but I see only the /objects folder has contents.
As far as I saw reading here and there, this folder is used usually for recovery purposes and the actual objects are hash representation of commits.
Why should anyone leave this folder only in a repo? How should I use it to retrieve the source code of the project?
