  Description     : a pure-Python git object database

 The GitDB project implements interfaces to allow read and write access to git
 repositories. In its core lies the db package, which contains all database
 types necessary to read a complete git repository. These are the LooseObjectDB,
 the PackedDB and the ReferenceDB which are combined into the GitDB to combine
 every aspect of the git database.
 For this to work, GitDB implements pack reading, as well as loose object
 reading and writing. Data is always encapsulated in streams, which allows huge
 files to be handled as well as small ones, usually only chunks of the stream
 are kept in memory for processing, never the whole stream at once.
 Interfaces are used to describe the API, making it easy to provide alternate
