           Git supports dividing the refs of a single repository into multiple
           namespaces, each of which has its own branches, tags, and HEAD. Git can
           expose each namespace as an independent repository to pull from and
           push to, while sharing the object store, and exposing all the refs to
           operations such as git-gc(1).
           Storing multiple repositories as namespaces of a single repository
           avoids storing duplicate copies of the same objects, such as when
           storing multiple branches of the same source. The alternates mechanism
           provides similar support for avoiding duplicates, but alternates do not
           prevent duplication between new objects added to the repositories
           without ongoing maintenance, while namespaces do.
           To specify a namespace, set the GIT_NAMESPACE environment variable to
           the namespace. For each ref namespace, git stores the corresponding
           refs in a directory under refs/namespaces/. For example,
           GIT_NAMESPACE=foo will store refs under refs/namespaces/foo/. You can
           also specify namespaces via the --namespace option to git(1).
           Note that namespaces which include a / will expand to a hierarchy of
           namespaces; for example, GIT_NAMESPACE=foo/bar will store refs under
           refs/namespaces/foo/refs/namespaces/bar/. This makes paths in
           GIT_NAMESPACE behave hierarchically, so that cloning with
           GIT_NAMESPACE=foo/bar produces the same result as cloning with
           GIT_NAMESPACE=foo and cloning from that repo with GIT_NAMESPACE=bar. It
           also avoids ambiguity with strange namespace paths such as
           foo/refs/heads/, which could otherwise generate directory/file
           conflicts within the refs directory.
           git-upload-pack(1) and git-receive-pack(1) rewrite the names of refs as
           specified by GIT_NAMESPACE. git-upload-pack and git-receive-pack will
           ignore all references outside the specified namespace.
           The smart HTTP server, git-http-backend(1), will pass GIT_NAMESPACE
           through to the backend programs; see git-http-backend(1) for sample
           configuration to expose repository namespaces as repositories.
           For a simple local test, you can use git-remote-ext(1):
               git clone ext::'git --namespace=foo %s /tmp/prefixed.git'


           Anyone with access to any namespace within a repository can potentially
           access objects from any other namespace stored in the same repository.
           You can't directly say "give me object ABCD" if you don't have a ref to
