git pack-redundant has been deprecated and is scheduled for removal in
a future version of Git. Because it can only remove entire duplicate
packs and not individual duplicate objects, it is generally not a useful
tool for reducing repository size. You are better off using
git gc to
do so, which will put objects into a new pack, removing duplicates.
pack-redundant without the
--i-still-use-this flag will fail
in this release. If you believe you have a use case for which
pack-redundant is better suited and oppose this removal, please
contact the Git mailing list at email@example.com. More information
about the list is available at https://git-scm.com/community.
This program computes which packs in your repository
are redundant. The output is suitable for piping to
xargs rm if you are in the root of the repository.
git pack-redundant accepts a list of objects on standard input. Any objects given will be ignored when checking which packs are required. This makes the following command useful when wanting to remove packs which contain unreachable objects.
git fsck --full --unreachable | cut -d ' ' -f3 | \ git pack-redundant --all | xargs rm
