[PATCH 00/40] Promisor remotes and external ODB support




This is an early patch series that start to merge the
jh/fsck-promisors patch series (which is currently in pu) with the
external odb patch series.

The merge is not complete and there is still work needed, but all the
tests pass and in my opinion this shows that it is a good way forward
to share the same mechanism to handle (many) remote object stores and
the related fsck and gc problems.

The jh/partial-clone (a separate patch series on top of
jh/fsck-promisors) still needs some work before it can be used on top
of this series. I rebased it on top but the tests do not pass yet. The
result of my rebase and current attempt to fix tests is here:

https://github.com/chriscool/git/commits/gl-partial-clone-rebased

This patch series does not include the last part of the previous
external odb series which was about adding an `--inital-refspec`
option to `git clone`.

Peff started to work on external odbs some years ago:

His work, which is not compile-tested any more, is still there:
