           git init [-q | --quiet] [--bare] [--template=<template_directory>]
           [--shared[=<permissions>]] [directory]


           -q, --quiet
               Only print error and warning messages, all other output will be
               Create a bare repository. If GIT_DIR environment is not set, it is
               set to the current working directory.
               Specify the directory from which templates will be used. (See the
               "TEMPLATE DIRECTORY" section below.)
               Specify that the git repository is to be shared amongst several
               users. This allows users belonging to the same group to push into
               that repository. When specified, the config variable
               "core.sharedRepository" is set so that files and directories under
               $GIT_DIR are created with the requested permissions. When not
               specified, git will use permissions reported by umask(2).
           The option can have the following values, defaulting to group if no
           value is given:
           ?    umask (or false): Use permissions reported by umask(2). The
               default, when --shared is not specified.
           ?    group (or true): Make the repository group-writable, (and g+sx,
               since the git group may be not the primary group of all users).
               This is used to loosen the permissions of an otherwise safe
               umask(2) value. Note that the umask still applies to the other
               permission bits (e.g. if umask is 0022, using group will not remove
               read privileges from other (non-group) users). See 0xxx for how to
               exactly specify the repository permissions.
           ?    all (or world or everybody): Same as group, but make the
               repository readable by all users.
           ?    0xxx: 0xxx is an octal number and each file will have mode 0xxx.
               0xxx will override users? umask(2) value (and not only loosen
               permissions as group and all does).  0640 will create a repository
               which is group-readable, but not group-writable or accessible to
               others.  0660 will create a repo that is readable and writable to
               the current user and group, but inaccessible to others.
           By default, the configuration flag receive.denyNonFastForwards is
           enabled in shared repositories, so that you cannot force a non
           If the object storage directory is specified via the
           $GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY environment variable then the sha1 directories
           are created underneath - otherwise the default $GIT_DIR/objects
           directory is used.
           Running git init in an existing repository is safe. It will not
           overwrite things that are already there. The primary reason for
           rerunning git init is to pick up newly added templates.
           Note that git init is the same as git init-db. The command was
           primarily meant to initialize the object database, but over time it has
           become responsible for setting up the other aspects of the repository,
           such as installing the default hooks and setting the configuration
           variables. The old name is retained for backward compatibility reasons.


           The template directory contains files and directories that will be
           copied to the $GIT_DIR after it is created.
           The template directory used will (in order):
           ?   The argument given with the --template option.
           ?   The contents of the $GIT_TEMPLATE_DIR environment variable.
           ?   The init.templatedir configuration variable.
           ?   The default template directory: /usr/share/git-core/templates.
           The default template directory includes some directory structure, some
           suggested "exclude patterns", and copies of sample "hook" files. The
           suggested patterns and hook files are all modifiable and extensible.


           Start a new git repository for an existing code base
                   $ cd /path/to/my/codebase
                   $ git init      (1)
                   $ git add .     (2)
               1. prepare /path/to/my/codebase/.git directory
               2. add all existing file to the index
