Objectives

* Laterally compatible with GPL git. You should be able to symlink git to ogit
  and no one should be the wiser.
* Code clarity (not the case at the moment)
* BSD-2-Clause licensed

At the moment, the objective is a read-only version, akin to svnlite, but there
is some overlap in writing objects and updating the index.

This seems to unfortunately have been abandoned upstream and in ~alpha stage, you might want to look at devel/got instead.

(In reply to Daniel Engberg from comment #1)
Wow, I didn't know about devel/got, I will definitely try it out! Thanks for letting me know.  It sounds compelling.

I ported devel/opengit mostly in case development were to ever pick up again (it actually didn't even work for me when I tried it on some operations), but since it was a low effort port, I don't mind if opengit doesn't make it into ports.

Committers, you can close this PR if that makes things easier.
Comment 4 Guangyuan Yang freebsd_committer 2021-08-15 23:48:09 UTC
Closing it for now - if the software is in active development again, we'd be happy to commit it into ports.
