And all of this is impacted by how we do thin manifests and commit
Thin manifests are those that contain ONLY entries for files not covered
by another (direct or indirect) hash in the VCS. Git's use of SHA1
allows a conversion from Git+thin Manifest to classical Manifest2.
Commit signing has a few implications/side-effects:
- commits are signed so Manifests are NOT signed anymore.
- During the conversion to classical Manifest2, we need to create
automated signatures (see the tree-signing GLEPs for MetaManifest).
- As a side advantage of the automated Manifests/signatures, we can use
the Manifest2 changes proposed in the tree-signing GLEPs to cover ALL
of the profiles and eclasses.
I'm going to be away Thursday till Monday, so the lack of any further
impact from me doesn't mean I don't have an opinion, rather just that
I'm away from the Internet.
