config tests: simplify include cycle test
Simplify an overly verbose test added in 9b25a0b52e ("config: add include directive", 2012-02-06). The "expect" file was never used, and by using .gitconfig it's not as intuitive to reproduce this manually with "-d" as some other tests, since HOME needs to be set in the environment. Also remove the use of test_i18ngrep added in a769bfc74f ("config.c: mark more strings for translation", 2018-07-21) in favor of overriding the GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON value. Using the i18n test wrappers hasn't been needed since my 6cdccfce1e ("i18n: make GETTEXT_POISON a runtime option", 2018-11-08). As a follow-up change to the yet-to-be-added will show, doing it this way can hide a regression when combined with trace2's early config reading. That early config reading was added in bce9db6de9 ("trace2: use system/global config for default trace2 settings", 2019-04-15). So let's remove the testing for that potential regression here, I'll instead add it explicitly to in a follow-up change. Signed-off-by: Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
