2007-10-19Stop displaying "Pack pack-$ID created." during git-gcShawn O. Pearce
Discussion on the list tonight came to the conclusion that showing the name of the packfile we just created during git-repack is not a very useful message for any end-user. For the really technical folk who need to have the name of the newest packfile they can use something such as `ls -t .git/objects/pack | head -2` to find the most recently created packfile.

2007-09-23Supplant the "while case ... break ;; esac" idiomDavid Kastrup
A lot of shell scripts contained stuff starting with while case "$#" in 0) break ;; esac and similar. I consider breaking out of the condition instead of the body od the loop ugly, and the implied "true" value of the non-matching case is not really obvious to humans at first glance. It happens not to be obvious to some BSD shells, either, but that's because they are not POSIX-compliant. In most cases, this has been replaced by a straight condition using "test". "case" has the advantage of being faster than "test" on vintage shells where "test" is not a builtin. Since none of them is likely to run the git scripts, anyway, the added readability should be worth the change. A few loops have had their termination condition expressed differently.

2007-01-12Make git-prune-packed a bit more chatty.Junio C Hamano
Steven Grimm noticed that git-repack's verbosity is inconsistent because pack-objects is chatty and prune-packed is not. This makes the latter a bit more chatty and gives -q option to squelch it. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-12-21Teach git-repack to preserve objects referred to by reflog entries.Junio C Hamano
This adds a new option --reflog to pack-objects and revision machinery; do not bother documenting it for now, since this is only useful for local repacking. When the option is passed, objects reachable from reflog entries are marked as interesting while computing the set of objects to pack. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2006-10-29Only repack active packs by skipping over kept packs.Shawn Pearce
During `git repack -a -d` only repack objects which are loose or which reside in an active (a non-kept) pack. This allows the user to keep large packs as-is without continuous repacking and can be very helpful on large repositories. It should also help us resolve a race condition between `git repack -a -d` and the new pack store functionality in `git-receive-pack`. Kept packs are those which have a corresponding .keep file in $GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY/pack. That is pack-X.pack will be kept (not repacked and not deleted) if pack-X.keep exists in the same directory when `git repack -a -d` starts. Currently this feature is not documented and there is no user interface to keep an existing pack. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2006-10-14git-repack: repo.usedeltabaseoffsetJunio C Hamano
When configuration variable `repack.UseDeltaBaseOffset` is set for the repository, the command passes `--delta-base-offset` option to `git-pack-objects`; this typically results in slightly smaller packs, but the generated packs are incompatible with versions of git older than (and including) v1.4.3. We will make it default to true sometime in the future, but not for a while. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2006-09-06git-repack: create new packs inside $GIT_DIR, not cwdMartin Langhoff
Avoid failing when cwd is !writable by writing the packfiles in $GIT_DIR, which is more in line with other commands. Without this, git-repack was failing when run from crontab by non-root user accounts. For large repositories, this also makes the mv operation a lot cheaper, and avoids leaving temp packfiles around the fs upon failure.

2006-07-13git-repack: avoid redirecting stderr into git-pack-objectsJunio C Hamano
We are trying to catch error condition of git-rev-list and cause the downstream pack-objects to barf, but if you run rev-list with anything that mucks with its stderr (such as GIT_TRACE), any stderr output would cause the pipeline to fail.

2006-06-25git-repack: Be careful when updating the same pack as an existing one.Junio C Hamano
After a clone, packfiles are read-only by default and "mv" to replace the pack with a new one goes interactive, asking if the user wants to replace it. If one is successfully moved and the other is not, the pack and its idx would become out-of-sync and corrupts the repository. Recovering is straightforward -- it is just the matter of finding the remaining .tmp-pack-* and make sure they are both moved -- but we should be extra careful not to do something so alarming to the users.

2006-04-19Allow "git repack" users to specify repacking window/depthLinus Torvalds
.. but don't even bother documenting it. I don't think any normal person is supposed to ever really care, but it simplifies testing when you want to use the "git repack" wrapper rather than forcing you to use the core programs (which already do support the window/depth arguments, of course).

2005-11-21git-repack: Properly abort in corrupt repositoryLinus Torvalds
In a corrupt repository, git-repack produces a pack that does not contain needed objects without complaining, and the result of this combined with -d flag can be very painful -- e.g. a lossage of one tree object can lead to lossage of blobs reachable only through that tree.

2005-10-28Be marginally more careful about removing objectsLinus Torvalds
The git philosophy when it comes to disk accesses is "Laugh in the face of danger". Notably, since we never modify an existing object, we don't really care that deeply about flushing things to disk, since even if the machine crashes in the middle of a git operation, you can never really have lost any old work. At most, you'd need to figure out the proper heads (which git-fsck-objects can do for you) and re-do the operation. However, there's two exceptions to this: pruning and repacking. Those operations will actually _delete_ old objects that they know about in other ways (ie that they just repacked, or that they have found in other places). However, since they actually modify old state, we should thus be a bit more careful about them. If the machine crashes and the duplicate new objects haven't been flushed to disk, you can actually be in trouble. This is trivially stupid about it by calling "sync" before removing the objects. Not very smart, but we're talking about special operations than are usually done once a week if that. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-10-13Add "-l" flag for repacking only local packsLinus Torvalds
This uses the new "--local" flag to git-pack-objects. It currently only makes a difference together with "-a", since a normal incremental repack won't pack any packed objects at all (whether local or remote). Eventually, it might end up skipping any objects that aren't local to the current object directory, but for now it only knows to skip packed objects.

2005-09-18Archive-destroying "git repack -a -d" bug.Junio C Hamano

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.
