Description John Mark Vandenberg 2014-11-03 12:37:33 UTC
The nightly builds appear to include a complete git clone.  There have been complaints about the time it takes to unzip the file.  It is also unfriendly to people not sitting on a high speed data unlimited connection.
Comment 1 Amir Ladsgroup 2014-11-03 13:34:37 UTC
I set up the nightly dumps and I'll fix it :)
Comment 2 Amir Ladsgroup 2014-11-03 21:07:59 UTC
I made some improvements, Is it still valid?
Comment 3 John Mark Vandenberg 2014-11-09 20:09:59 UTC - 88M - 29M

It would be nice if showed the size of the download after each link.

Also there are broken links on
Comment 4 Amir Ladsgroup 2014-11-10 17:24:46 UTC
Even with shallow clone loads of garbage (GARBAGE! I'm angry) were being downloaded (for instance 26M for compat, 14M for i18n).

At first I changed git pull to removing it completely and re-cloning it again. some improvements were made but not much.
I used git gc to reduce git objects but it didn't work out very well, I used more aggressive methods (like --prune=all and another git gc for i18n submodule) and now core is less than 10M and compat is 20M. The only thing that worries me it's that --prune=all maybe causes breakage of version (or in compat). I will check and tell you soon.

I also fixed broken links

About showing file sizes since it's plain html, It's not possible (rewriting that page in php won't be hard but another bug would be a better place for it)
Comment 5 John Mark Vandenberg 2014-11-11 00:00:10 UTC - 8.5M - very nice!!  As mentioned, need to test version functionality.
Comment 6 Amir Ladsgroup 2014-11-11 04:44:12 UTC
amir@amir-Inspiron-N5110:~/Downloads/core$ python version
Pywikibot: [https] r-pywikibot-core.git (47ba777, g3, 2014/11/10, 00:50:49, ok)
Release version: 2.0b2
Even though the the g number is nonsense but the date and first number is completely okay, output of git log is also okay.
Comment 7 John Mark Vandenberg 2014-11-11 04:52:26 UTC
and -verbose ?
Comment 8 Amir Ladsgroup 2014-11-11 05:09:24 UTC is the same with or without verbose (obviously):

A simple script with verbose looks okay to me:
Comment 9 John Mark Vandenberg 2014-11-11 05:10:30 UTC
Very nice!
