Thanks, Johannes, that makes sense to me. Florian, does that mean that making the svn helper start to use --cat-blob-fd at all is a potential regression for Windows? The fast-import documentation says that the cat-blob output will go to stdout now. Does it even work at all now? I don't really know or understand all of the reasons for cat-blob-fd to exist in the first place. I expect one answer might be "well, the svn remote helper does not work at all on Windows already, so there's no regression". But this affects _all_ fast-import calls that git's transport-helper makes. Are there other ones that use import, and would they be affected by this? For that matter, isn't this a backwards-incompatible change for other third-party helpers? Won't they need to respect the new GIT_REPORT_FILENO environment variable? Do we need the helper to specify "yes, I am ready to handle cat-blob-fd" in its capabilities list? -Peff -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
