The people at kernel.org threatened to uninstall cogito RPM package from there so that the recent git RPM can be installed instead, unless cogito is repackaged to depend on core git and not ship its own copy.
I wanted to see that separation happen anyway, long before I took it over from Linus. To help Pasky, I updated the master branch of git.git repository with the last remaining bit from git-pb tree ("merge-cache -q" flag) and tagged the version as v0.99.3, so cogito package can say "Depends: git (>= 0.99.3)" or some RPM equivalent. It was a good time to tag anyway, now we have Barkalow commit walker that natively knows about packed repository, so we can pull from such over a dumb protocol, albeit sloooooowly. Aside from the bugfixes whenever bugs are found and documentation enrichment, the only major thing remaining I know of is the head-renaming push (and head-renaming pull). Sorry, I didn't have enough time to work on it over the weekend, but I now know what's involved and have a rough sketch of how it would work. - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to [EMAIL PROTECTED] More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
