Call for testing: BFG Repo-Cleaner

I would like to announce a call of testing for the BFG Repo-Cleaner snap. BFG Repo-Cleaner is a simpler, faster alternative to git-filter-branch for cleansing bad data out of your Git repository history.


How to install

Get it from the Snap Store

or, in a terminal:

# Install the snap #
sudo snap install --channel=beta bfg-repo-cleaner

# Connect the snap to optional security confinement interfaces #
## For accessing files under /media ##
sudo snap connect bfg-repo-cleaner:removable-media

# Launch the application #
snap run bfg # If you have another existing installation

What to test

  • Can you properly launch the application?
  • Do you notice any problems during running the application?

How to contribute

Here’s the source repository of the snap:
