Restore the ":(attr:filter=lfs)" test for LFS

Authored by epriestley on Thu, Apr 30, 4:01 AM.



See D21190. The ".gitattributes" approach fails when ".gitattributes" is in a subdirectory (or global). These are probably unusual cases, but at least one is known in the wild.


  • Restore the ":(attr:filter=lfs)" test, which seems to be the fastest accurate test available in modern Git.
  • If the test fails, assume the repository is not LFS. This only impacts users running very old versions of Git.
Test Plan
  • In LFS and non-LFS repositories, created diffs. Saw correct detection again.
  • Broke the command on purpose, saw LFS detection conclude "no LFS", but not fail disastrously.
