Hi all,
I am forwarding a reply I got from a message I sent to git user mailing list because of a "bad pack header error" (more information below).
I will forward another email where I give all the git versions of my system.

Any clue on this would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I have a problem with my build system.

I have a remote server with a relatively large repository (around 12
GB, each branch having a size of 3 GB).

I have also 2 build servers (Mac, Windows) that are cloning the repo
from the remote.

Sometimes (very often when several git clone are sent at the same
time), I have the following error:

    remote: internal server error
    fatal: protocol error: bad pack header

I know that it happens when the remote is compressing objects (thanks
to `--progress -v` flags) because the last line of the log before the
erro is:
    remote: Compressing objects:  93% (17959/19284)   [K

 * So I have 2 questions, does anybody what is the problem and what
should I do?
 * Is there a way to get a more precise log from the remote to debug
this problem?

This reminds me of a bug fixed in [1]:

* When "git push" triggered the automatic gc on the receiving end, a
  message from "git prune" that said it was removing cruft leaked to
  the standard output, breaking the communication protocol.

In any case, bugs should be reported to the main Git list (which is
git at vger.kernel.org), not here.
I'm Cc'ing the main Git list so you'll get any responses from there, if

Kevin, please answer to this message (keeping all the Ccs -- use "Reply
