Hi git list,

I am trying to diagnose a strange problem in a VM running as a 'git
over ssh server', with one repo which periodically grows very quickly.

The complete dataset packs to a single pack+index of ~650MB. Growth is
slow, these are ASCII text reports that use a template -- highly
compressible. Reports come from a few dozen machines that log in every

However, something is happening that explodes the efficient pack into
an ungodly mess.

Do client pushes over git+ssh ever trigger a repack on the server? If
so, these repacking processes are racing with each other and taking
650MB to 7GB at which point we hit ENOSPC, sometimes pom killer joins
the party, etc.

pack dir looks like this, ordered by timestamp:


 -  ask interesting questions
 - don't get distracted with shiny stuff  - working code first
