Les Guix,

Brice Waegeneire 写道:
Git references being content-addressed is important

That's only tautologically true if we limit ourselves to using raw commit hashes instead of the more common (because far more practical) named tags. I obviously don't think we should do that.

If we don't, I fail to see how our git-fetches are ‘content-addressed’ in a way that url-fetches supposedly aren't. Git tags are even easier to modify in place than tarballs, not harder.


Yes, this is niice.  ♥

For the sake of argument¹, though, so is --with-source=<actually released and supported upstream tarball dot tar>.

Somehow erasing that hard distinction is the real winning move.

Kind regards,
