       git-pack-redundant - Find redundant pack files

       git pack-redundant [ --verbose ] [ --alt-odb ] < --all | .pack filename ... >

       This program computes which packs in your repository are redundant. The output is suitable for piping
       to xargs rm if you are in the root of the repository.

       git pack-redundant accepts a list of objects on standard input. Any objects given will be ignored
       when checking which packs are required. This makes the following command useful when wanting to
       remove packs which contain unreachable objects.

       git fsck --full --unreachable | cut -d ' ' -f3 | \ git pack-redundant --all | xargs rm

           Processes all packs. Any filenames on the command line are ignored.

           Don't require objects present in packs from alternate object directories to be present in local

           Outputs some statistics to stderr. Has a small performance penalty.
