        Personally, I do not use garbage collection at all.  Instead,
        after I’m finished with the clone, and make sure all its worthy
        commits made it into a separate (--bare) repository, I’d remove
        one in its entirety.

        Sure, I’d unlink it from alternates first, and check if my other
        clones are still valid after that, before the actual removal.
