Subject: The state of the object store series
Date: Tue, 19 Jun 2018 15:07:22 -0700
Message-ID: <> (raw)

There is an ongoing effort to remove global state currently and switch over
to pass around the relevant data structures; for most of it we end up passing
around 'the_repository' as it contains everything there is.

Merged into master:

fcb6df32546 Merge branch 'sb/oid-object-info'
a2cec42213c Merge branch 'sb/object-store-replace'
3a1ec60c43b Merge branch 'sb/packfiles-in-repository'
cf0b1793ead Merge branch 'sb/object-store'

Currently cooking:

8c69a7d7e80 Merge branch 'sb/object-store-grafts' into pu
42d32d07298 Merge branch 'sb/object-store-alloc' into jch

(both marked for "will merge to next" in the cooking report)

Floating on the mailing list, not cooking yet:

  This clashes with other series in flight (Stolees get_tree series; see
  I'll rebase this series on top of that series once the currently cooking
  series stabilize)

  This converts the_index to pass around index pointers instead of
  it fits into the theme, but Duys end goal differs from mine; he is
less submodule focused.

Work that still needs to be done:

  Convert the commit graph to have no global state, but be part of the
  repository struct. I think this can go in parallel to
  so I'll tackle that next. Thanks Stolee for looking ahead: There is only the
  commit graph itself as well as whether it has been prepared as a global
  variable. So this series will consist of passing around a repository struct
  for all those higher level functions that do not pass around the commit graph
  or parts of it.

  This requires "xx/object-store-commit-graph" as well as
  it will convert parse_commit[_gently] to take a repository argument and will
  finish the actual object store part. This might be optional for the goal of
  converting submodules, that I have in mind, but it sure is a nice finishing

  This series aims to convert get_merge_bases(), in_merge_bases() and all its
  revision walking code to take a repository argument.

  Once "xx/convert-revision-walking" is in, convert the local
  and convert all functions to drop function add_submodule_odb() and instead
  operate on the submodule repository instead of the_repository with the
  submodule objects added as an alternate.
