Subject: [PATCH v2 0/3] [RFC] Create 'core.featureAdoptionRate' setting to update config defaults
Date: Wed, 19 Jun 2019 08:11:59 -0700 (PDT)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <pull.254.v2.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.254.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

Here is a second run at this RFC, which aims to create a "meta" config
setting that automatically turns on other settings according to a user's
willingness to trade new Git behavior or new feature risk for performance
benefits. The new name for the setting is "core.featureAdoptionRate" and is
an integer scale from 0 to 10. There will be multiple "categories" of
settings, and the intention is to allow more granular levels as necessary.

The first category is "3 or higher" which means that the user is willing to
adopt features that have been tested in multiple major releases. The
settings to include here are core.commitGraph=true,
gc.writeCommitGraph=true, and index.version=4.

The second category is "5 or higher" which means the user is willing to
adopt features that have not been out for multiple major releases. The
setting included here is pack.useSparse=true.

In the future, I would add a "7 or higher" setting which means the user is
willing to have a change of behavior in exchange for performance benefits.
The two settings to place here are 'status.aheadBehind=false' and
'fetch.showForcedUpdates=false'. Instead of including these settings in the
current series, I've submitted them independently for full review [1, 2].

Hopefully this direction is amenable to allow "early adopters" gain access
to new performance features even if they are not necessary reading every
line of the release notes.

Thanks, -Stolee
