Description Björn Michaelsen 2013-10-19 16:35:48 UTC
We have one big bibisect repository at:


which covers the range up to 4.0 branch off and a freshly created one that covers the builds from that point up to 2013-10-12 on master:


It would be great to merge these together to one big repository covering all the range from 2011-08 until 2013-10 ...

A script for that is available at:


but it likely needs some tweaks before it can be used. After the repositories are merged, running a "git repack -ad --depth 500 --window 100" or somesuch might make the resulting repo smaller.

I'll take a peek at this over the weekend. I'll need to ping cloph and make sure that we have a repo set up somewhere for it to live..

Can we add that to our to-do list after bugzilla migration?

Repo created and pushed up to test server. For (test) access, email me a public ssh key.

2013-11-25 bibisect repo added to bibisectzilla (and pushed up to test server).

- Have people test the repo
- Get a permanent home for this repo from Cloph
