Suppose I am in a folder called
local-projects. Using the terminal, I can do:
[pedro@system:~/quicklisp/local-projects]$ pwd /home/pedro/quicklisp/local-projects
An important information to highlight is that local-projects folder is not under git control. Even so and still using the terminal, I can do:
[pedro@system:~/quicklisp/local-projects]$ git clone [email protected]:muyinliu/jsown-utils.git
This works, Ok.
So, I wished I could do
git clone using Magit great interface. There is a command for
C (capitalized C) which is to clone.
Thus, using dired I decide to go to the folder
~/quicklisp/local-projects. But, when I execute the command to invoke Magit with
magit-status, Magit asks me the following:
Create repository in /home/pedro/quicklisp/local-projects/? (y or n)
n. In shell, there is no such a question. Not sure if I missed something, but it seems inappropriate to answer
y, thus, I choose
Did I miss something?
Is it possible to achieve the same result as
git clone ... in shell using Magit  ?
 - By the same result I am including the side effects of the process.
