Repository Context

The repository context is used to connect Tabby with a source code repository from Git, GitHub, GitLab, etc. Tabby fetches the source code from the repository, parses it into an AST, and stores it in the index. During LLM inference, this context is utilized for code completion, as well as chat and search functionalities.
