parse-options-cb: implement parse_opt_passthru_argv()
Certain git commands, such as git-pull, are simply wrappers around other git commands like git-fetch, git-merge and git-rebase. As such, these wrapper commands will typically need to "pass through" command-line options of the commands they wrap. Implement the parse_opt_passthru_argv() parse-options callback, which will reconstruct all the provided command-line options into an argv_array, such that it can be passed to another git command. This is useful for passing command-line options that can be specified multiple times. Helped-by: Stefan Beller <> Signed-off-by: Paul Tan <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
