From: Eric Wong <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Subject: thoughts on Git::Raw / libgit2? Date: Tue, 16 Jun 2020 21:40:51 +0000 [thread overview] Message-ID: <20200616214050.GA15110@dcvr> (raw) Hey all, First off, I have no intention of making Git::Raw (Perl libgit2 wrapper) or libgit2 a hard dependency. It'll be an option if available, like most of our dependencies. Git::Raw is not packaged with CentOS 7.x; but cpan/cpanm is an option. It is in Debian 10.x as libgit-raw-perl, so I can report bugs via Debian's BTS[*]. I only intend to use Git::Raw for blob retrievals as a separate AF_UNIX SOCK_STREAM daemon similar to how we use `git cat-file --batch/--batch-check'. The socket/pipe interface works well for unpredictable seek times on HDDs. Using Git::Raw from an AF_UNIX SOCK_STREAM daemon would allow us to save pipe buffers, and PIDs when there's tens/hundreds of thousands of git repos involved. [*] I have no intention of ever using a proprietary service for free software development. Even if GitHub were free software, their terms-of-service is unacceptable to me.
