    An idiomatic, lean, fast & safe pure Rust implementation of Git

    That said, here is how to receive a pack from the remote and resolve it: `mkdir out && gix -v no-repo pack receive out`.

  • zlib-ng

    zlib replacement with optimizations for "next generation" systems.

    I wonder if zlib-ng would make a difference, since it has a lot of optimizations for modern hardware.
