prototype: git clone from SWH
Closed, MigratedEdits Locked


The idea is to rebuild the Git repository for a given origin using the SWH database and object storage.

Even though this is an advanced feature in our roadmap, having a prototype for it will allow to do comprehensive roundtrip tests, where we compare the rebuilt Git repository with the original one.

In light of issues like T78 , the ideal test based on "git cloning" from SWH would include both:

  • verifying that the top-most commits have the right sha1_git checksum, and
  • verifying that the Git object store contains all and only the objects we started with

As the "prototype" part of the vault is definitely over, I'm closing this task.
