<p>   When updating your project, you do not need to reenter the GITREPO
      or the --autopush.  Fossil remembers those things.  The initial
      mirroring operation probably took several minutes (or tens of minutes)
      but a typical update will happen in a second or less.

## Notes:





  *  The "fossil git export" command creates subprocesses that run "git"
     commands.  So you must have Git installed on your machine for any
     of this to work.

  *  The Git repository will have an extra unmanaged top-level directory named
     "`.mirror_state`" that contains one or more files.  Those files are

## Notes:

  *  The mirroring is one-way.  If you check in changes on GitHub, those
     changes will not be reabsorbed by Fossil.  There are technical problems
     that make a two-way mirror all but impossible.

     commands.  So you must have Git installed on your machine for any
