git-pack-redundant(1)
=====================
 
NAME
----
git-pack-redundant - Program used to find redundant pack files.
 
 
SYNOPSIS
--------
'git-pack-redundant [ --verbose ] [ --alt-odb ] < --all | .pack filename ... >'
 
DESCRIPTION
-----------
This program computes which packs in your repository
are redundant. The output is suitable for piping to
'xargs rm' if you are in the root of the repository.
 
git-pack-redundant accepts a list of objects on standard input. Any objects
given will be ignored when checking which packs are required. This makes the 
following command useful when wanting to remove packs which contain unreachable
objects.
 
git-fsck-objects --full --unreachable | cut -d ' ' -f3 | \
git-pack-redundant --all | xargs rm
 
OPTIONS
-------
 
 
--all::
	Processes all packs. Any filenames on the commandline are ignored.
 
--alt-odb::
	Don't require objects present in packs from alternate object
	directories to be present in local packs.
 
--verbose::
	Outputs some statistics to stderr. Has a small performance penalty.
