rev-list --objects-edge
This new flag is similar to --objects, but causes rev-list to show list of "uninteresting" commits that appear on the edge commit prefixed with '-'. Downstream pack-objects will be changed to take these as hints to use the trees and blobs contained with them as base objects of resulting pack, producing an incomplete (not self-contained) pack. Such a pack cannot be used in .git/objects/pack (it is prevented by git-index-pack erroring out if it is fed to git-fetch-pack -k or git-clone-pack), but would be useful when transferring only small changes to huge blobs.
