This path series is a follow up from the "remote odb" patch series
that I sent last year, which were a follow up from previous
series. See the links section for more information.

The goal of this patch series is to make it possible to have and to
fetch missing objects from multiple remotes instead of only one.

For now the fetch order is the order of the remotes in the config.

I selected the name "Promisor remote" over "Partial clone remote"
because it is shorter and because it is not only about cloning.

The existing extensions.partialclone is respected, but it is not
written in the config when a partial clone or fetch is made. Instead
remote.<name>.promisor is set to "true". This may create a
compatibility issue, but it makes it possible to start using many
promisor remotes by just cloning and fetching from different remotes
with partial clone filters. The compatibility issue could be resolved
in a future iteration by just setting extensions.partialclone instead
of remote.<name>.promisor the first time a promisor remote is used.

In general I have tried to change as few things as possible.

High level changes since the V1
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  - added documentation patches
  
  - fixed issues when fetching from a new promisor remote
  
  - added a test to check that remote.<name>.promisor is set to "true"
    when fetching from a new promisor remote

  - renamed functions in promisor-remote.{c,h} to make the names more
    coherent and easier to understand

  - added 2 small typo fix patches that I sent separately

High level overview of this patch series
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  - Patch 1/13 and 2/13:

These are 2 new small patches that I sent separately. I am adding them
here as the other patches were developed on top of them and it creates
a small conflict is these 2 patches are removed.

  - Patch 3/13:

This patch, which hasn't changed since V1, makes functions in
fetch-object.c return an error code, which is necessary to later tell
that they failed and try another promisor remote when there is more
than one. This could also just be seen as a fix to these functions.

  - Patch 4/13:

This introduces the minimum infrastructure for promisor remotes. There
has been a number of renames and improvements since V1.

  - Patch 5/13, 6/13 and 7/13:

This add a few missing bits in the promisor remote infrastructure that
will be needed in the following patches. There has been a number of
renames and improvements since V1.

  - Patch 8/13:

This replaces the previous interface to use only one promisor remote
defined in extensions.partialclone by the new interface created by the
previous patches. There has been a few renames since V1.

  - Patch 9/13:

This replaces the way a partial clone filter was handled by a new way
based on the previous patches that support more than one partial clone
filter. There has been a few renames since V1.

  - Patch 10/13:

This new patch removes the limitation in builtin/fetch.c to have only
one promisor remote.

  - Patch 11/13:

This adds test cases that shows that now more than one promisor remote
can be used and that remote.<name>.promisor is set to "true" when
fetching from a new promisor remote.

  - Patch 12/13 and 13/13:

These are new documentation patches, to explain how things can work
with more than one promisor remote.

This patch series is a follow up from the discussions related to
the remote odb V4 patch series:

https://public-inbox.org/git/20180802061505.2983-1-chriscool@tuxfamily.org/

Especially in:

https://public-inbox.org/git/CAP8UFD3nrhjANwNDqTwx5ZtnZNcnbAFqUN=u=LrvzuH4+3wQQA@mail.gmail.com/

I said that I would like to work on things in the following order:

  1) Teaching partial clone to attempt to fetch missing objects from
multiple remotes instead of only one using the order in the config.

  2) Simplifying the protocol for fetching missing objects so that it
can be satisfied by a lighter weight object storage system than a full
Git server.

  3) Making it possible to explicitly define an order in which the
remotes are accessed.

  4) Making the criteria for what objects can be missing more
aggressive, so that I can "git add" a large file and work with it
using Git without even having a second copy of that object in my local
object store.

And this patch series is about the 1).
