Started playing with dulwich's git smart protocol client.

  • The HTTP "smart" client doesn't know how to read data from the server, and therefore sends all the commit history at once. Furthermore, it's completely buggy with Python3.
  • The git smart client seems to work well.

Trying an update on all of linux.git's refs makes the github server hang up the connection. It seems that it doesn't like when we ask for peeled refs, we therefore need to filter them out before asking for the missing refs.
