No, not 5 commit objects - 5 trees (for the directories, including the
root directory), 1 blob (for the file), and 1 commit. From gIt(1):
The object database contains objects of three main types: blobs, which
hold file data; trees, which point to blobs and other trees to build up
directory hierarchies; and commits, which each reference a single tree
and some number of parent commits.
So in Tom's case I think we can account for the root directory, src,
src/backend, src/backend/executor, src/backend/optimizer,
src/backend/optimizer/util, src/test, src/test/regress,
src/test/regress/expected, src/test/regress/sql, the 4 files actually
updated, and the commit - 15 objects per branch * 6 branches = 90
objects. I'm not sure why the actual number is 89, unless perhaps two
of the post-commit regression test files were byte-for-byte identical
and got collapsed into a single object. I believe that "delta" refers
to the number of those objects that are stored as deltas against an
existing object (in essence, diffs) rather than as completely new
I have no idea where the 172 number comes from.
