repack: do not accidentally pack kept objects by default
Commit ee34a2b (repack: add `repack.packKeptObjects` config var, 2014-03-03) added a flag which could duplicate kept objects, but did not mean to turn it on by default. Instead, the option is tied by default to the decision to write bitmaps, like: if (pack_kept_objects < 0) pack_kept_objects = write_bitmap; after which we expect pack_kept_objects to be a boolean 0 or 1. However, that assignment neglects that write_bitmap is _also_ a tri-state with "-1" as the default, and with neither option given, we accidentally turn the option on. This patch is the minimal fix to restore the desired behavior for the default state. Further patches will fix the more complicated cases. Note the update to t7700. It failed to turn on bitmaps, meaning we were actually confirming the wrong behavior! Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
