[jgit-dev] GIT replace



We are thinking about splitting out repositories history, as it is getting quite large recently. To allow history browsing for our developers, we will provide a script that ‘git replace’s the old history onto the new repo. Unfortunately it seems that JGIT does not support reading git replace refs. Now my question to the experts: Do you think this is much effort to implement? I do not need to be able to use git replace from the IDE, but the history view and annotations in the editor should show the replaced history…


I am willing to give it a shot and try to implement it if I get some hints on how/where to start J






Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards
