2008-02-11Make git prune remove temporary packs that look like write failuresDavid Steven Tweed
Write errors when repacking (eg, due to out-of-space conditions) can leave temporary packs (and possibly other files beginning with "tmp_") lying around which no existing codepath removes and which aren't obvious to the casual user. These can also be multi-megabyte files wasting noticeable space. Unfortunately there's no way to definitely tell in builtin-prune that a tmp_ file is not being used by a concurrent process, such as a fetch. However, it is documented that pruning should only be done on a quiet repository and --expire is honoured (using code from Johannes Schindelin, along with a test case he wrote) so that its safety is the same as that of loose object pruning. Since they might be signs of a problem (unlike orphaned loose objects) the names of any removed files are printed.
