The git is purely distributed and was never designed to have
star-like-development model support (like SVN/CVS). 

This does not mean that it can't emulate that somewhat, but the
concept how it achieves it is quite different. there is no actual
"master" repository" except in conceptual level. The "central"
repository can appear only when group of developers agree that some
location is considered special. But from technical point of view all
git's local repositories are equal.

So, there is no workflow of centralized model like:

- Sources and history is THERE
- my working copy is HERE

present in git's idea. This is natural because git is fully
decentralized with gobal revids.
