receive-pack: allow pushes that update .git/shallow
The basic 8 steps to update .git/shallow does not fully apply here because the user may choose to accept just a few refs (while fetch always accepts all refs). The steps are modified a bit. 1-6. same as before. After calling assign_shallow_commits_to_refs at step 6, each shallow commit has a bitmap that marks all refs that require it. 7. mark all "ours" shallow commits that are reachable from any refs. We will need to do the original step 7 on them later. 8. go over all shallow commit bitmaps, mark refs that require new shallow commits. 9. setup a strict temporary shallow file to plug all the holes, even if it may cut some of our history short. This file is used by all hooks. The hooks could use --shallow-file=$GIT_DIR/shallow to overcome this and reach everything in current repo. 10. go over the new refs one by one. For each ref, do the reachability test if it needs a shallow commit on the list from step 7. Remove it if it's reachable from our refs. Gather all required shallow commits, run check_everything_connected() with the new ref, then install them to .git/shallow. This mode is disabled by default and can be turned on with receive.shallowupdate Signed-off-by: Nguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
