This command checks various invariants about branch and repository storage to detect data corruption or brz bugs.
The working tree and branch checks will only give output if a problem is detected. The output fields of the repository check are:
This is just the number of revisions checked. It doesn’t indicate a problem.
This is just the number of versionedfiles checked. It doesn’t indicate a problem.
- unreferenced ancestors
Texts that are ancestors of other texts, but are not properly referenced by the revision ancestry. This is a subtle problem that Breezy can work around.
- unique file texts
This is the total number of unique file contents seen in the checked revisions. It does not indicate a problem.
- repeated file texts
This is the total number of repeated texts seen in the checked revisions. Texts can be repeated when their file entries are modified, but the file contents are not. It does not indicate a problem.
If no restrictions are specified, all data that is found at the given location will be checked.
