Safe access to git files.
File is already locked.
GitFile(filename, mode='rb', bufsize=- 1, mask=420)¶
Create a file object that obeys the git file locking protocol.
Returns: a builtin file object or a _GitFile object
Note: See _GitFile for a description of the file locking protocol.
Only read-only and write-only (binary) modes are supported; r+, w+, and a are not. To read and write from the same file, you can take advantage of the fact that opening a file for write does not actually open the file you request.
The default file mask makes any created files user-writable and world-readable.
Ensure a directory exists, creating if necessary.
