As part of an upcoming "protocol update" discussion, we may want to
include allowing "upload-pack" to accept a request for commit that
is not at the tip of any ref.

E.g. "want refs/heads/master~*0.1" might ask "I know your entire
history is very big; please give me only the one tenth of the oldest
history during this round." (this is not a suggestion on how to do
this at the UI level).

To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in
the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org
