Remove pack.keep after ref updates in git-fetch
If we are using a native packfile to perform a git-fetch invocation and the received packfile contained more than the configured limits of fetch.unpackLimit/transfer.unpackLimit then index-pack will output a single line saying "keep\t$sha1\n" to stdout. This line needs to be captured and retained so we can delete the corresponding .keep file ("$GIT_DIR/objects/pack/pack-$sha1.keep") once all refs have been safely updated. This trick has long been in use with and its lower level helper git-fetch--tool as a way to allow index-pack to save the new packfile before the refs have been updated and yet avoid a race with any concurrently running git-repack process. It was unfortunately lost when was converted to pure C and fetch--tool was no longer being invoked. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
