Thanks. It refers to an article at gmane, which is not readily accessible unless you use newsreader. The original discussion it refers to appears at: https://public-inbox.org/git/7vbo5itjfl....@alter.siamese.dyndns.org/ for those who are interested. I am still not sure if it is a good design to add a new command like this series does, though. I would naively have expected that this would be a new pack index format that is produced by pack-objects and index-pack, for example, in which case its maintenance would almost be invisible to end users (i.e. just like how the pack bitmap feature was added to the system).
