the problem in communication is that you are using svn/cvs terminology
to describe git, in git checkout does not imply fetch it does imply it
in svn I believe. there is a shallow clone in git and narrow
capability the problem is there is no way to update a shallow clone in
a shallow way. if you were to host a git repo on nfs (or other network
mountable fs) you could eve clone it locally in an as shallow way as
cvs by using git-new-workdir but that would basically be a hack...
