Subject: [PATCH v4 0/2] setup: fix memory leaks with `struct repository_format`
Date: Thu, 28 Feb 2019 21:36:26 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <cover.1551385992.git.martin.agren@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190226174655.GE19606@sigill.intra.peff.net>

This is a follow-up to v3 [1] from about a month ago. Patch 1 is
unchanged; patch 2 provides some additional documentation of the
initialization that is required, plus I've gotten rid of the compound
literal. Range-diff below.

Thanks Peff and brian for very helpful comments and discussion.
