[egit-dev] [JGIT] jgit clone file:// question


I've changed the maven-release-manager to allow local clones via the file:// protocol instead doing a clone from the upstream repository in the mvn release:perform step.

Now my question:

If I do a 
$> git clone file://
git (under linux) is so smart to _not_ copy all the repo blobs but only create hardlinks instead. I know this is not possible under windows and surely not with Java. 
But is there any 'softlinking' which will be used, or will al files be copied over to the new clone when using JGit?

txs and LieGrue,
