[Patchew-devel] [PATCH] applier: synchronize tags lazily into the cache
Posted by Paolo Bonzini 4 years, 4 months ago
Every time the patchew's applier mode is restarted, it repopulates a cache
of git repositories.  For QEMU, the git repo has thousands of tags
which take a very long time to create.  Synchronize refs/heads/* only
(--mirror=fetch would synchronize all of refs/*); the tags are
only used by patchew-cli when a Based-on trailer is found, and can
be populated lazily.
