So it sounds like this is too much infrastructure change until we have 4
At this time, we only have one (git submodules). My intent with this
series was to add the foundation for supporting git-lfs (which would be
the second use-case) and others.
Based on the conversation, it seems like until we have a hard
requirement from other backends (hg and svn as previously mentioned),
this series is DOA and that git-lfs support should be added via some
<pkg>_GIT_LFS define as was originally submitted here:
My main goal here is to add git-lfs support, regardless of how that
needs to happen. If resubmitting the original patch gets that done,
that's what I'll do.
Please let me know your thoughts.
