tlrepo 0.5.0

Thread-local git2::Repository, shareable across threads

tlrepo provides ThreadLocalRepo, a convenient way to share a git2::Repository object between threads.

A standard git2::Repository object does not support sharing among threads without some form of synchronization. tlrepo::ThreadLocalRepo provides a convenient way to reopen the same repository on each thread, caching the opened repository thread-locally for reuse.

You can create a ThreadLocalRepo by calling ThreadLocalRepo::new, or by using the extension trait tlrepo::RepositoryExt to call .thread_local() on an existing git2::Repository. You can share the ThreadLocalRepo across threads, calling .get() to get a git2::Repository object to work with.
