Subject: [GSoC][Project Idea] Multipart and resumable download while using git clone or pull
Date: Tue, 13 Mar 2018 18:01:55 +0000
Message-ID: <> (raw)


My name is Varun Garg and am a student in Software Engineering. During 2017 I participated in GSoC at Eclipse Foundation [1] and still contribute occasionally [2]. I have also submitted a micro project here last year[3].

I would like to add functionality of "Multipart and resumable download while using git clone or pull" in git.

The motivation behind this idea came to me when I was downloading linux kernel. Even with shallow clone (--depth=1), the number of objects was too large. Many times we need access to older commits. It is also difficult to update shallow cloned repos [4]. And ssh option is not available behind many firewalls.

Downloading objects incrementally is too slow and we can speed this process by downloading them in parallel (multi part) and adding a resume option will also be lifesaver.

I am looking forward to take this project.


With Best Regards,
Varun Garg
