Re: [PATCH] mk/ (Re: migrate to git for emacs-current (24.0.50) ?

Thanks for the response, I really appreciate.

  You mentioned the robustness is the most important. I agree.
git may include its integrity in their own mechanism, so it
would be get managed I hope.

  First of all, I said 280MB for emacs-current for daily
cache, it was WITHOUT --depth 1. With --depth 1, it is about

 The second thing is that I am leaning to go with proposed
policy, meaning that keep uncompressed tar archive of .git
directory of daily bases. It is just like  If
the disk space problem arises, just remove manually old
generations.  (I have checked emacs-current with and it occupies about 30MB per day.)

  We may have GIT_KEEP_GENERATIONS flag which if set, removes
the daily archive generations exceeding that number.

  I also notice that even this flags is set, archive may get
fat by accumulating history on local copy of .git. I don't
exactly not tell the impact of this for the time being.

Anyway, I think adding cache capability to
won't hurt any existing functions.
