- Add option to use manifest file from
instead of periodically probing git fetch to check for new mail. This would
allow to compare "fingerprint" or "modified" entries to see if the repos
actually changed. The "fingerprint" entry is just `git show-ref | sha1sum`,
which is deterministic.
- Using the manifest file will additionally help to automatically recognize
epoch roll-over. It does not happen very frequently, but it does happen --
0.git will eventually stop being updated and become 1.git, etc. Relying on
the manifest, one will be able to automatically recognize when such event
occurs and therefore it wouldn't need to be manually enabled in the l2md
configuration file.
