SYNOPSIS         top

       git unpack-objects [-n] [-q] [-r] [--strict]

DESCRIPTION         top

       Read a packed archive (.pack) from the standard input, expanding
       the objects contained within and writing them into the repository
       in "loose" (one object per file) format.

           the best effort to recover as many objects as possible.

           Don’t write objects with broken content or links.
