Sage 9: Do you want to remove the existing VCS?

Hi there,

I’ve been running installing Sage 9 using composer as per the README on the github project, and I have been asked the following question: “Do you want to remove the existing VCS?” - Does anyone know if this is relevant? Is it safe to ignore this?


Here’s a screencap of the process:

Sage is a Git repo so even when you run composer create-project it preserves Sage’s .git folder. That prompt is very relevant and asking if you want to remove it or not.

Assuming you’re starting your own project/theme, then you’d want to initialize your own Git repo so you’d answer yes to that question.


Thanks, that makes sense. I’m glad I asked!

Thanks @swalkinshaw !
