[gits] FYI: pack corruption post-mortem

This is an interesting story:


	> From: Jeff King <peff <at> peff.net>
	> Subject: pack corruption post-mortem
	> Newsgroups: gmane.comp.version-control.git
	> Date: 2013-10-16 08:34:01 GMT 
	> I was recently presented with a repository with a corrupted packfile,
	> and was asked if the data was recoverable. This post-mortem describes
	> the steps I took to investigate and fix the problem. I thought others
	> might find the process interesting, and it might help somebody in the
	> same situation.
