+ With this option, `git gc` checks if there are too many
+ loose objects in the repository and runs
+ gitlink:git-repack[1] with `-d -l` option to pack them.
+ The threshold is set with `gc.auto` configuration
+ variable, and can be disabled by setting it to 0. Some
+ Porcelain commands use this after they perform operation
+ that could create many loose objects automatically.
