2005-09-08Big tool rename.Junio C Hamano
As promised, this is the "big tool rename" patch. The primary differences since 0.99.6 are: (1) git-*-script are no more. The commands installed do not have any such suffix so users do not have to remember if something is implemented as a shell script or not. (2) Many command names with 'cache' in them are renamed with 'index' if that is what they mean. There are backward compatibility symblic links so that you and Porcelains can keep using the old names, but the backward compatibility support is expected to be removed in the near future.

2005-08-30git-repack-script: Add option to repack all objects.Junio C Hamano
This originally came from Frank Sorenson, but with a bit of rework to allow future enhancements without changing the external interface for pack pruning part. With the '-a' option, all objects in the current repository are packed into a single pack. When the '-d' option is given at the same time, existing packs that were made redundant by this round of repacking are deleted. Since we currently have only two repacking strategies, one with '-a' (everything into one) and the other without '-a' (incrementally pack only the unpacked ones), the '-d' option is meaningful only when used with '-a'; it removes the packs existed before we did the "everything into one" repacking. At least for now. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Acked-by: Frank Sorenson <> (cherry picked from bfed505327e31221d8de796b3af880bad696b149 commit)
2005-08-24Generate pack info file after repack.Junio C Hamano
Pulling from a packed repository over dumb transport without the server info file fails, so run update-server-info automatically after a repack by default. This can be disabled with the '-n' flag. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-07-08Mark git-relink-script and git-repack-script executableLinus Torvalds
Sure, "install" will default to installing it executable anyway, but this is the right thing to do.
2005-07-08Add "git-sh-setup-script" for common git shell script setupLinus Torvalds
It sets up the normal git environment variables and a few helper functions (currently just "die()"), and returns ok if it all looks like a git archive. So use it something like . git-sh-setup-script || die "Not a git archive" to make the rest of the git scripts more careful and readable.
2005-07-03Make the name of a pack-file depend on the objects packed there-in.Linus Torvalds
This means that the .git/objects/pack directory is also rsync'able, since the filenames created there-in are either unique or refer to the same data. Otherwise you might not be able to pull from a directory that is partly packed without having to worry about missing objects due to pack-file name clashes.
