I'm Yuxuan Shui, a undergraduate student from China. I'm applying for
GSoC 2014, and here is my proposal:

I found this idea on the ideas page, and did some research about it.
The pack bitmap patchset add a new .bitmap file for every pack file
which contains the reachability information of selected commits. This
information is used to speed up git fetching and cloning, and produce
a very convincing results.

The goal of my project is to port the pack bitmap implementation in
core git to libgit2, so users of libgit2 could benefit from this
optimization as well.

Please let me know if my proposal makes sense, thanks.

P.S. I've submitted by microproject patch[1], but haven't received any
response yet.
