Difference between git clone bedrock vs composer create-project?

The Trellis docs instruct to git clone the bedrock repo.

The Bedrock docs refer to

composer create-project

Is there a practical difference between these installation steps for bedrock?

The only difference I’m aware of is that running the Composer installer will run the script: https://github.com/roots/bedrock/blob/1.8.1/composer.json#L55-L57

Which really isn’t much. It’s also not necessary with Trellis as the .env file will be created for you

There is another one which is about the “config/” directory which is not created by create-project.

That’s not true at all

config directory is created on create-project.
