[PATCH 04/10] upload-pack: add partial (sparse) fetch




From: Jeff Hostetler <git@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Teach upload-pack to advertise the "partial" capability
in the fetch-pack/upload-pack protocol header and to pass
the value of partial-by-size and partial-special on to
pack-objects.

Update protocol documentation.

This might be used in conjunction with a partial (sparse) clone
or fetch to omit various blobs from the generated packfile.

+The client can optionally request a partial packfile that omits
+various blobs.  The value of "partial-by-size" is a non-negative
+integer with optional units and requests blobs smaller than this
+value.  The "partial-special" command requests git-special files,
+such as ".gitignore".  Using both requests the union of the two.
+These requests are only valid if the server advertises the "partial"
+capability.

 Once all the 'want's and 'shallow's (and optional 'deepen') are
 transferred, clients MUST send a flush-pkt, to tell the server side
 that it is done sending the list.
