Ref T4605. Currently, the PullLocal daemon is responsible for two relatively distinct things:

  • scheduling repository updates; and
  • actually updating repositories.

Move the "actually updating" part into a new bin/repository update command, which basically runs the pull, discover, refs and mirror commands. This will let the parent process focus on scheduling in a more understandable way and update multiple repositories at once. It also makes it easier to debug and understand update behavior since the non-scheduling pipeline can be run separately.

Test Plan
  • Ran update --trace on SVN, Mercurial and Git repos.
  • Ran PullLocal daemon for a while without issues.

Nice re-factor. If the answer to my inline question is "no" can we change the phlog to log to the daemon console?


this ends up showing up in the daemon log?

Yeah, phlog() from daemons goes to the console (or, if it doesn't, that's a bug). I'll double-check.

Here's a screenshot of it hitting the daemon logs under real-world conditions:
