Continued working on the enhancaed smudge/clean interface in git, incorporating feedback from the git developers.
In a spare half an hour, I made an
that teaches git-annex smudge to use the new interface.
Doing a quick benchmark,
git checkout of a deleted 1 gb file took:
- 19 seconds before
- 11 seconds with the new interface
- 0.1 seconds with the new interface and annex.thin set
(while also saving 1 gb of disk space!)
So, this new interface is very much worthwhile.
