NAME         top

       git-pack-redundant - Find redundant pack files

SYNOPSIS         top

       git pack-redundant [ --verbose ] [ --alt-odb ] < --all | .pack filename ... >

DESCRIPTION         top

       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

OPTIONS         top

           Processes all packs. Any filenames on the command line are

           Don’t require objects present in packs from alternate object
           directories to be present in local packs.

           Outputs some statistics to stderr. Has a small performance
