maintenance: add --schedule option and config Maintenance currently triggers when certain data-size thresholds are met, such as number of pack-files or loose objects. Users may want to run certain maintenance tasks based on frequency instead. For example, a user may want to perform a 'prefetch' task every hour, or 'gc' task every day. To help these users, update the 'git maintenance run' command to include a '--schedule=<frequency>' option. The allowed frequencies are 'hourly', 'daily', and 'weekly'. These values are also allowed in a new config value 'maintenance.<task>.schedule'. The 'git maintenance run --schedule=<frequency>' checks the '*.schedule' config value for each enabled task to see if the configured frequency is at least as frequent as the frequency from the '--schedule' argument. We use the following order, for full clarity: 'hourly' > 'daily' > 'weekly' Use new 'enum schedule_priority' to track these values numerically. The following cron table would run the scheduled tasks with the correct frequencies: 0 1-23 * * * git -C <repo> maintenance run --schedule=hourly 0 0 * * 1-6 git -C <repo> maintenance run --schedule=daily 0 0 * * 0 git -C <repo> maintenance run --schedule=weekly This cron schedule will run --schedule=hourly every hour except at midnight. This avoids a concurrent run with the --schedule=daily that runs at midnight every day except the first day of the week. This avoids a concurrent run with the --schedule=weekly that runs at midnight on the first day of the week. Since --schedule=daily also runs the 'hourly' tasks and --schedule=weekly runs the 'hourly' and 'daily' tasks, we will still see all tasks run with the proper frequencies.

Git is a fast, scalable, distributed revision control system with an unusually rich command set that provides both high-level operations and full access to internals.
Git is an Open Source project covered by the GNU General Public License version 2 (some parts of it are under different licenses, compatible with the GPLv2). It was originally written by Linus Torvalds with help of a group of hackers around the net.
Please read the file INSTALL for installation instructions.
Many Git online resources are accessible from https://git-scm.com/ including full documentation and Git related tools.
See Documentation/gittutorial.txt to get started, then see Documentation/giteveryday.txt for a useful minimum set of commands, and
Documentation/git-<commandname>.txt for documentation of each command. If git has been correctly installed, then the tutorial can also be read with
man gittutorial or
git help tutorial, and the documentation of each command with
man git-<commandname> or
git help <commandname>.
CVS users may also want to read Documentation/gitcvs-migration.txt (
man gitcvs-migration or
git help cvs-migration if git is installed).
The user discussion and development of Git take place on the Git mailing list -- everyone is welcome to post bug reports, feature requests, comments and patches to email@example.com (read Documentation/SubmittingPatches for instructions on patch submission). To subscribe to the list, send an email with just “subscribe git” in the body to firstname.lastname@example.org. The mailing list archives are available at https://lore.kernel.org/git/, http://marc.info/?l=git and other archival sites.
Issues which are security relevant should be disclosed privately to the Git Security mailing list email@example.com.
The maintainer frequently sends the “What's cooking” reports that list the current status of various development topics to the mailing list. The discussion following them give a good reference for project status, development direction and remaining tasks.
The name “git” was given by Linus Torvalds when he wrote the very first version. He described the tool as “the stupid content tracker” and the name as (depending on your mood):
