test_description='pack-objects breaks long cross-pack delta chains'
. ./
# This mirrors a repeated push setup:
# 1. A client repeatedly modifies some files, makes a
# commit, and pushes the result. It does this N times
# before we get around to repacking.
# 2. Each push generates a thin pack with the new version of
# various objects. Let's consider some file in the root tree
# which is updated in each commit.
# When generating push number X, we feed commit X-1 (and
# thus blob X-1) as a preferred base. The resulting pack has
# blob X as a thin delta against blob X-1.
# On the receiving end, "index-pack --fix-thin" will
# complete the pack with a base copy of blob X-1.
# 3. In older versions of git, if we used the delta from
# pack X, then we'd always find blob X-1 as a base in the
# same pack (and generate a fresh delta).
# But with the pack mru, we jump from delta to delta
# following the traversal order:
# a. We grab blob X from pack X as a delta, putting it at
# the tip of our mru list.
# b. Eventually we move onto commit X-1. We need other
# objects which are only in pack X-1 (in the test code
# below, it's the containing tree). That puts pack X-1
# at the tip of our mru list.
# c. Eventually we look for blob X-1, and we find the
# version in pack X-1 (because it's the mru tip).
# Now we have blob X as a delta against X-1, which is a delta
# against X-2, and so forth.
# In the real world, these small pushes would get exploded by
# unpack-objects rather than "index-pack --fix-thin", but the
# same principle applies to larger pushes (they only need one
# repeatedly-modified file to generate the delta chain).
