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
