I am a complete newcomer to git, but I want to use it to work on an iOS project. My company has a very large TFS repository and I would like to check out a few selected projects and resources and build them into my iOs project. I think what I need is sparse
check out but I have no idea how to do this with git-TF. Could someone give me some straightforward instructions or point me to there relevant documentation? I can see how to do this with pure git but I can't see how to fit git-tf into the picture.
This is what I tried

remote name from which new revisions should be fetched.
git tf pull

Where did I go wrong?
