Tv's cobweb: Git for Computer Scientists

git storage

Quick introduction to git internals for people who are not scared by words like Directed Acyclic Graph.

In simplified form, git object storage is "just" a DAG of objects, with a handful of different types of objects. They are all stored compressed and identified by an SHA-1 hash (that, incidentally, isn't the SHA-1 of the contents of the file they represent, but of their representation in git).
