There is a hash table of repositories, with the value listing each
item for that repository. However, the hash is keyed by a constant
string, and only that one entry is ever present. Some of the code
knows about the (1-item) hash table, and other parts of the code have
no idea what is going on.
There are about four different representations of "what to commit"
that are built during the commit process. Mapped from one to the other
to the other. Each with its own slightly different semantics and data
In the new code, finding "what to commit" will basically be a SELECT
statement from the database (all WORKING or ACTUAL nodes with a given
changelist value, then filtered by path).
