|[jgit-dev] New milestone... one less dependency on C Git|
With rename detection being merged in, our Gerrit Code Review instance has been upgraded to a version that no longer forks out to C Git. I think we can finally start to say that the JGit project is now completely self-hosted [1,2]. (Prior to today, Gerrit had to fork to C Git to generate the list of files that were changed, and to get their hunks for the side-by-side viewer. Now we do it in-process with JGit.)  I still have to run C Git's `git gc` every once in a while, because we don't have a `jgit gc` program yet. Hopefully it will soon.  Our git://egit.eclipse.org/ is still C Git, and our gitweb is still C Git. I don't use those often so I'm ignoring them. -- Shawn.
