    55     55   <p>   When updating your project, you do not need to reenter the GITREPO
    56     56         or the --autopush.  Fossil remembers those things.  The initial
    57     57         mirroring operation probably took several minutes (or tens of minutes)
    58     58         but a typical update will happen in a second or less.

    61     61   ## Notes:
           62  +
           63  +  *  The mirroring is one-way.  If you check in changes on GitHub, those
           64  +     changes will not be reabsorbed by Fossil.  There are technical problems
           65  +     that make a two-way mirror all but impossible.

    63     67     *  The "fossil git export" command creates subprocesses that run "git"
    64     68        commands.  So you must have Git installed on your machine for any
    65     69        of this to work.
    66     70   
    67     71     *  The Git repository will have an extra unmanaged top-level directory named
    68     72        "`.mirror_state`" that contains one or more files.  Those files are
