[PATCH] Define relative .git/objects/info/alternates semantics.
An entry in the alternates file can name a directory relative to the object store it describes. A typical linux-2.6 maintainer repository would have "../../../torvalds/linux-2.6.git/objects" there, because the subsystem maintainer object store would live in /pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/$u/$system.git/objects/ and the object store of Linus tree is in /pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git/objects/ This unfortunately is different from GIT_ALTERNATE_OBJECT_DIRECTORIES which is relative to the cwd of the running process, but there is no way to make it consistent with the behaviour of the environment variable. The process typically is run in $system.git/ directory for a naked repository, or one level up for a repository with a working tree, so we just define it to be relative to the objects/ directory to be different from either ;-). Later, the dumb transport could be updated to read from info/alternates and make requests for the repository the repository borrows from. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
