Hi, 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. Motivation: 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 be lifesaver. I am looking forward to take this project.  https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/archive/2017/projects/5762172684599296/  https://github.com/eclipse/omr/pulls?q=author%3AVarun-garg  https://public-inbox.org/git/cy1pr19mb01289dca6c08cdc9f07c6d7df2...@cy1pr19mb0128.namprd19.prod.outlook.com/  https://stackoverflow.com/questions/41075972/how-to-update-a-git-shallow-clone With Best Regards, Varun Garg
