Subject: [TOPIC 7/17] Background operations/maintenance
Date: Thu, 12 Mar 2020 15:02:48 +1100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <35FDF767-CE0C-4C51-88A8-12965CD2D4FF@jramsay.com.au> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <AC2EB721-2979-43FD-922D-C5076A57F24B@jramsay.com.au>

1. Stolee: Are we interested in having a background process doing 
things?

2. Emily: There are a lot of different ways to do this. Even only 
looking at Linux there are different ways.

3. Stolee: Without looking at how? What background operations would we 
like to have?

4. Emily: Is it a good candidate for `git undo`? To keep track of what 
the user was doing and to make it possible to roll back?

5. Brian: It can run into scalability issues. Also there might be repos 
on my disk that never change and don’t need background processing. At 
GitHub we do maintenance based on the number of pushes.

6. Stolee: Kind of maintenance will differ from client and server, 
interests are different. For Scalar we have this one process looking at 
all repos and will do operations on them.

7. Peff: On server-side you’ll have millions of repos and even one 
process looking at all processes have impact on the system. Most hosting 
providers already have services taking care of this, so I think this 
feature is only interesting for client-side.

8. Brian: We should be careful. For example I’m constantly creating 
test repos in /tmp.

9. Stolee: Thanks for the input, we’ll do research and come back to 
this.
