Hi all, This is going to be a longish one, so please pull up a chair. I'm trying to get a repository . The repo. is https://github.com/clintbellanger/flare-game . Now I'm on a unstable network so first I tried the classical way :-
$ git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/clintbellanger/flare-game.git Cloning into 'flare-game'... remote: Counting objects: 2731, done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (2474/2474), done. Killeding objects: 17% (470/2731), 134.73 MiB | 57.00 KiB/s My network went down and I had to kill the running process because when the network came back git didn't start from where it had let off. So I did the following :- Code: Select all ~/games/flare-game$ git fetch --depth=1 remote: Counting objects: 2735, done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (2477/2477), done. remote: Total 2735 (delta 331), reused 2401 (delta 239) Receiving objects: 100% (2735/2735), 353.25 MiB | 53.00 KiB/s, done. Resolving deltas: 100% (331/331), done. >From https://github.com/clintbellanger/flare-game * [new branch] master -> origin/master Now I tried to unshallow the repo. ~/games/flare-game$ git fetch --unshallow remote: Counting objects: 29729, done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (9191/9191), done. Receiving objects: 46% (13271/28465), 124.33 MiB | 58.00 KiB/s I went to ~/games/flare-game/.git/objects/pack and saw this :- $ ll -h total 396M -r--r--r-- 1 shirish shirish 76K Aug 25 15:46 pack-371aa15aba2c7ff036e7964ee5736125404b5dce.idx -r--r--r-- 1 shirish shirish 354M Aug 25 15:46 pack-371aa15aba2c7ff036e7964ee5736125404b5dce.pack -r--r--r-- 1 shirish shirish 43M Aug 25 16:47 tmp_pack_BLnuHj If I remove the last tmp file and try git fsck and git gc I get the following :- ~/games/flare-game$ git fsck notice: HEAD points to an unborn branch (master) Checking object directories: 100% (256/256), done. Checking objects: 100% (2735/2735), done. as well as :- ~/games/flare-game$ git gc Counting objects: 2735, done. Delta compression using up to 2 threads. Compressing objects: 100% (2385/2385), done. Writing objects: 100% (2735/2735), done. Total 2735 (delta 331), reused 2735 (delta 331) If I now do :- ~/games/flare-game$ git fetch --unshallow Would it give me the other 100/150 MB remaining without re-downloading the whole 350 MB again i.e. just the diff.? The repo. is supposedly around 500/600 MB .
