Subject: [PATCH v3 2/2] repack: add --filter=<filter-spec> option
Date: Tue, 22 Nov 2022 18:51:50 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20221122175150.366828-3-christian.couder@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20221122175150.366828-1-christian.couder@gmail.com>

From: Christian Couder <chriscool@tuxfamily.org>

After cloning with --filter=<filter-spec>, for example to avoid
getting unneeded large files on a user machine, it's possible
that some of these large files still get fetched for some reasons
(like checking out old branches) over time.

In this case the repo size could grow too much for no good reason
and `git repack --filter=<filter-spec>` would be useful to remove
the unneeded large files.

This command could be dangerous to use though, as it might remove
local objects that haven't been pushed which would lose data and
corrupt the repo. On a server, this command could also corrupt a
repo unless ALL the removed objects aren't already available in
another remote that clients can access.

To mitigate that risk, we check that a promisor remote has at
least been configured.
