Subject: [PATCH v3 14/16] Reftable support for git-core
Date: Thu, 26 Nov 2020 19:42:29 +0000
Message-ID: <a590865a7008f065b3f4a75deabbf6dc06807623.1606419752.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.847.v3.git.git.1606419752.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

From: Han-Wen Nienhuys <hanwen@google.com>

For background, see the previous commit introducing the library.

This introduces the file refs/reftable-backend.c containing a reftable-powered
ref storage backend.

It can be activated by passing --ref-storage=reftable to "git init", or setting
GIT_TEST_REFTABLE in the environment.

Example use: see t/t0031-reftable.sh
