Ok, I've downloaded your objects, and it all looks fine. Nothing is
So something is wrong with the git-fsck-cache handling of
GIT_ALTERNATE_OBJECT_DIRECTORIES, but I don't see what. Other programs
happily see the objects, git-fsck-cache for some reason does not, and thus
complains. I'll try to figure it out.
However, the more I try to make "git-pack-objects" work with a partial
repository, the less happy I am about it. It works wonderfully well with
rsync:, since rsync just doesn't know that something is missing, but
generating the object list when there are objects missing is quite hard.
I can be trivial and say "missing objects aren't interesting", and it
would _work_, but that just doesn't make me happy. So I'm almost getting
ready to say "let's not do this thing after all".

This is definitely not a cogito problem, that fsck thing is in git itself.
And no, you didn't destroy your tree - I just merged it, and the merged
results look fine and fsck correctly (and I get the same diffstat you do).
It's just a bug in fsck somewhere that makes it look bad.
That said, my inability to check the pack for completeness for a partial
archive makes me think this partial rsync wasn't such a good idea after
all. It _is_ convenient, though, so I'll have to think about the send-pack
issues some more and see if I can resolve the difficulty without too much
problems. And clearly I need to fix git-fsck-cache.
Anyway, I pushed out the merge, so don't worry about your tree. But let's
hold off on this partial thing for a while, ok?
