My name is Varun Garg and am a student in Software Engineering. During 2017 I
participated in GSoC at Eclipse Foundation  and still contribute
occasionally . I have also submitted a micro project here last year.
I would like to add functionality of "Multipart and resumable download while
using git clone or pull" in git.
The motivation behind this idea came to me when I was downloading linux kernel.
Even with shallow clone (--depth=1), the number of objects was too large. Many
times we need access to older commits. It is also difficult to update shallow
cloned repos . And ssh option is not available behind many firewalls.
Downloading objects incrementally is too slow and we can speed this process by
downloading them in parallel (multi part) and adding a resume option will also
I am looking forward to take this project.
With Best Regards,
