gc: make --prune useful again by accepting an optional parameter
With this patch, "git gc --no-prune" will not prune any loose (and dangling) object, and "git gc --prune=5.minutes.ago" will prune all loose objects older than 5 minutes. This patch benefitted from suggestions by Thomas Rast and Jan Krï¿œger. Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@gmx.de> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
