// deepcopy-gen is a tool for auto-generating DeepCopy functions.
// Given a list of input directories, it will generate DeepCopy and DeepCopyInto
// methods that efficiently perform a full deep-copy of each type. If these
// already exist (are predefined by the developer), they are used instead of
// generating new ones.
// If interfaces are referenced in types, it is expected that corresponding
// DeepCopyInterfaceName methods exist, e.g. DeepCopyObject for runtime.Object.
// These can be predefined by the developer or generated through tags, see below.
// They must be added to the interfaces themselves manually, e.g.
// type Object interface {
// ...
// DeepCopyObject() Object
// }
// All generation is governed by comment tags in the source. Any package may
// request DeepCopy generation by including a comment in the file-comments of
// one file, of the form:
// // +k8s:deepcopy-gen=package
// DeepCopy functions can be generated for individual types, rather than the
// entire package by specifying a comment on the type definion of the form:
// // +k8s:deepcopy-gen=true
// When generating for a whole package, individual types may opt out of
// DeepCopy generation by specifying a comment on the type definition of the form:
// // +k8s:deepcopy-gen=false
// Additional DeepCopyInterfaceName methods can be generated by sepcifying a
// comment on the type definition of the form:
// //,
// This leads to the generation of DeepCopyObject and DeepCopyList with the given
// interfaces as return types. We say that the tagged type implements deepcopy for the
// interfaces.
// The deepcopy funcs for interfaces using "+k8s:deepcopy-gen:interfaces" use the pointer
// of the type as receiver. For those special cases where the non-pointer object should
// implement the interface, this can be done with:
// // +k8s:deepcopy-gen:nonpointer-interfaces=true
