I have been playing around with the JGit DFS implementation and have a minimal POC where I can write and read packs to HDFS and can create refs (using the built-in DfsReftableDatabase). It appears, though, that as a bare repository, a lot of the porcelain features I'm used to are not available (eg: commits, trees, diffs, etc). My question: is it possible to implement these on top of DFS? Or am I misunderstanding the use case? Any recommendations on how to gain these features in a DFS implementation?

For reference, I am attempting to build a programmatic library that allows basic git features for storing and versioning files that can be used by applications in our stack. Primarily for runtime configuration data. The "files" and "directories" would be more logical abstractions in this sense as it won't be an actual user working on a local file system. The idea of having JGit w/ DFS backend seemed promising for this...
