        Not necessarily, – you can just as well add the Git (or, rather,
        .git/objects) directory of your “other” clone to your current’s
        .git/objects/info/alternates, which will make the other clone’s
        commits available for any operation – including merge – on the
        current one.  Like, say:

$ cat < emacs-foo/.git/objects 

        If you do not care about the warning, you can even do this is in
        a cyclic manner:

$ cat < emacs-bar/.git/objects
