10 --------
11 'git-pack-redundant' [ --verbose ] [ --alt-odb ] < --all | .pack filename ... >
12
13 DESCRIPTION
14 -----------
15 This program computes which packs in your repository
16 are redundant. The output is suitable for piping to
17 'xargs rm' if you are in the root of the repository.
18
19 git-pack-redundant accepts a list of objects on standard input. Any objects
20 given will be ignored when checking which packs are required. This makes the
21 following command useful when wanting to remove packs which contain unreachable
22 objects.
23
24 git-fsck-objects --full --unreachable | cut -d ' ' -f3 | \
25 git-pack-redundant --all | xargs rm
