So you are criticizing my code saying "it would then be almost completely useless...", when this is in fact what you sent to the list. For the record, here is the output of a test with your script vs. mine: the output is *exactly the same*: --- == log == * afcbedc (tag: v0.2, master) bump | * cbd2dce (devel) dev |/ * 46f1813 (HEAD, test) remove * df95e41 dot . * ede0876 with * d6f10fc extra * e6362b1 (tag: v0.1) one == files == file == spaces == with spaces == dot == dot . == orig ref == refs/heads/test == script == bc9a7d99132f97adeb5d2ca266bd3d8bc64ccb21 /home/felipec/Downloads/gitpacker.txt Unpacking......(0.13 sec) done.

Anyway, I can add support for branches and tags in no time, but I wonder what's the point. Who will take so much time and effort to generate all the branches and tags, and the log file? If the goal is as you say "importing older projects that are available only as sequences of release tarballs", then that code is overkill, and it's not even making it easier to import the tarballs. For that case my proposed format: tag v0.1 gst-av-0.1.tar "Release 0.1" tag v0.2 gst-av-0.2.tar "Release 0.2" tag v0.3 gst-av-0.3.tar "Release 0.3" Would be much more suitable. >> > It doesn't issue delete ops. >> >> What do you mean? >> >> out.puts 'deleteall' <- All current files are removed > > Yours emits no D ops for files removed after a particular snapshot. man git fast-import --- This command is extremely useful if the frontend does not know (or does not care to know) what files are currently on the branch, and therefore cannot generate the proper filedelete commands to update the content. --- Why would I want to emit D operations, again, deleteall takes care of that. >> > Be aware, however, that I consider easy editability by human beings >> > much more important than squeezing the last microsecond out of the >> > processing time.

You might have done that, but the user that generated the log file might have not. >> Personally I would prefer something like this: > > There's a certain elegance to that, but it would be hard to generate by hand. You think this is hard to generate by hand: --- tag v0.1 gst-av-0.1.tar "Release 0.1" tag v0.2 gst-av-0.2.tar "Release 0.2" tag v0.3 gst-av-0.3.tar "Release 0.3" --- Than this? --- commit 1 directory gst-av-0.1 Release 0.1 . commit 2 directory gst-av-0.2 Release 0.2 . commit 3 directory gst-av-0.3 Release 0.3 . --- After of course, extracting the tarballs, which my script already does automatically. > Remember that a major use case for this tool is making repositories > from projects whose back history exists only as tarballs.

What does the above log file achieve, that my log file doesn't? -- Felipe Contreras
