Re: Merging two repositories?

Thank you, the pull-local approach has worked fine here :-)

Hello, let's suppose I have two different ostree repositories, repo1/

Will it corrupt the repository internal structure?

I think so long as the refs are named differently, rsyncing one into
the other should work fine on archive-z2 repos.

In my case the trees are created without knowing the previous trees in
the repository, and my idea is "manually" merging the new repository
with the previous one. If it works, I will again manually create the
delta between the versions when required.

Based on a non-deep reading, ostree allows such approach, and I am
curently doing some experiments, but I would like to confirm there's
nothing wrong with the approach.

If it does not work, my idea is checking out the tree created in the
repo and commit it in a new one, eve though this process is very slow
for performing unneeded steps. (I am using rpm-ostree for building the

I think the best way to do this would be through pull-local, though.

ostree --repo=repo1 pull-local repo2 version2

One disadvantage of this approach, though, is that it only pulls the
latest commit. I have a patch to add a --depth option to pull-local so
you could add --depth=-1 for all commits, but it's against an older
version and I haven't forward ported it yet.
