Quoth the git-remote-helpers man page:
"If option check-connectivity is requested, the helper must output
connectivity-ok if the clone is self-contained and connected."
I tried doing that in a helper, but I still got a connectivity check.
Looking at the code, it looks like this only works if I supply a
".keep" file, and it only works for objects within the kept pack. If I
want my helper to write more than one pack, I can't use this feature.
What I would expect, given the man page text, is that if connectivity-
ok is output, the entire rev-list bit is skipped.
Is this a bug? Or is it working as intended, and the documentation is
just unclear? Should there be an option for "I (the remote helper)
know what I am doing, so please don't bother to check connectivity"?
