Crate git_commitgraph[][src]

Expand description

Read, verify, and traverse git commit graphs.

A commit graph is an index of commits in the git commit history. The Graph stores commit data in a way that accelerates lookups considerably compared to traversing the git history by usual means.

As generating the full commit graph from scratch can take some time, git may write new commits to separate files instead of overwriting the original file. Eventually, git will merge these files together as the number of files grows.
