pack-objects: double-check options before discarding objects
When we are given an expiration time like --unpack-unreachable=2.weeks.ago, we avoid writing out old, unreachable loose objects entirely, under the assumption that running "prune" would simply delete them immediately anyway. However, this is only valid if we computed the same set of reachable objects as prune would. In practice, this is the case, because only git-repack uses the --unpack-unreachable option with an expiration, and it always feeds as many objects into the pack as possible. But we can double-check at runtime just to be sure. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
