I want to use an existing project as a starting point for a new project by copying or cloning it.
There are at least two ways of doing this.Method 1: Copy it.
cp -R /path/to/source /path/to/dest
andMethod 2: Clone it.
git clone /path/to/source
What are the relative advantages and disadvantages of each approach compared to the other? Or do they both produce essentially exactly the same result?
