Works for me.

At the moment, I don't see why we need two oid_arrays here.
Instead, this 'extra' could instead be renamed to something
like 'server_objects' or 'base_objects' to make it clear
that we don't want those objects, and can even use them and
their reachable objects as delta bases, when appropriate.

Or, just don't touch it.

Oh! We are using a 'git fetch --negotiate-only' subprocess here. You
can ignore my previous message about updating the docs for this to be
used only by tests.

This appends, so there is no reason why it needs to be empty before
the method. Is there a way we could feed the extra_have set when
calling this method? Or is it happening at a strange time?

Here, it would be nice if extra_have and commons were merged before calling
pack_objects(). I mentioned a way to perhaps make that easier above, but
the context might not make that be super-simple. Running a loop here to
scan 'commons' and append them to 'extra_have' might be a sufficient
approach.

Generally, this approach seems like it would work. I have not done any
local testing, yet.

Thanks,
