git-rev-list: make --dense the default (and introduce "--sparse")
This actually does three things: - make "--dense" the default for git-rev-list. Since dense is a no-op if no filenames are given, this doesn't actually change any historical behaviour, but it's logically the right default (if we want to prune on filenames, do it fully. The sparse "merge-only" thing may be useful, but it's not what you'd normally expect) - make "git-rev-parse" show the default revision control before it shows any pathnames. This was a real bug, but nobody would ever have noticed, because the default thing tends to only make sense for git-rev-list, and git-rev-list didn't use to take pathnames. - it changes "git-rev-list" to match the other commands that take a mix of revisions and filenames - it no longer requires the "--" before filenames (although you still need to do it if a filename could be confused with a revision name, eg "gitk" in the git archive) This all just makes for much more pleasant and obvous usage. Just doing a gitk t/ does the obvious thing: it will show the history as it concerns the "t/" subdirectory. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
