=====================

NAME
----
git-pack-redundant - Find redundant pack files


SYNOPSIS
--------
[verse]
'git pack-redundant' [ --verbose ] [ --alt-odb ] < --all | .pack filename ... >

DESCRIPTION
-----------
This program computes which packs in your repository
are redundant. The output is suitable for piping to
`xargs rm` if you are in the root of the repository.

'git pack-redundant' accepts a list of objects on standard input. Any objects
given will be ignored when checking which packs are required. This makes the
following command useful when wanting to remove packs which contain unreachable
objects.

git fsck --full --unreachable | cut -d ' ' -f3 | \
git pack-redundant --all | xargs rm

OPTIONS
-------


--all::
	Processes all packs. Any filenames on the command line are ignored.

--alt-odb::
	Don't require objects present in packs from alternate object
	directories to be present in local packs.

--verbose::
	Outputs some statistics to stderr. Has a small performance penalty.
