# writes to metadata files are ordered.  reads: changelog, manifest,
# normal files.  writes: normal files, manifest, changelog.

# manifest contains pointers to offsets in normal files.  changelog
# contains pointers to offsets in manifest.  if reader reads old
# changelog while manifest or normal files are written, it has no
# pointers into new parts of those files that are maybe not consistent
# yet, so will not read them.

# localrepo.addchangegroup thinks it writes changelog first, then
# manifest, then normal files (this is order they are available, and
# needed for computing linkrev fields), but uses appendfile to hide
# updates from readers.  data not written to manifest or changelog
# until all normal files updated.  write manifest first, then
# changelog.

# with this write ordering, readers cannot see inconsistent view of
# repo during update.
