+= My First Object Walk
+
+== What's an Object Walk?
+
+The object walk is a key concept in Git - this is the process that underpins
+operations like object transfer and fsck. Beginning from a given commit, the
+list of objects is found by walking parent relationships between commits (commit
+X based on commit W) and containment relationships between objects (tree Y is
+contained within commit X, and blob Z is located within tree Y, giving our
+working tree for commit X something like `y/z.txt`).
+
+A related concept is the revision walk, which is focused on commit objects and
+their parent relationships and does not delve into other object types. The
+revision walk is used for operations like `git log`.
+
+=== Related Reading
+
+- `Documentation/user-manual.txt` under "Hacking Git" contains some coverage of
+ the revision walker in its various incarnations.
+- `revision.h`
+- https://eagain.net/articles/git-for-computer-scientists/[Git for Computer Scientists]
+ gives a good overview of the types of objects in Git and what your object
+ walk is really describing.
+
+== Setting Up
+
+Create a new branch from `master`.
+
+----
+git checkout -b revwalk origin/master
+----
+
+We'll put our fiddling into a new command. For fun, let's name it `git walken`.
+Open up a new file `builtin/walken.c` and set up the command handler:
+
+----
+/*
+ * "git walken"
+ *
+ * Part of the "My First Object Walk" tutorial.
+ */
+
+#include "builtin.h"
+
+int cmd_walken(int argc, const char **argv, const char *prefix)
+{
+ trace_printf(_("cmd_walken incoming...\n"));
+ return 0;
+}
+----
+
+NOTE: `trace_printf()` differs from `printf()` in that it can be turned on or
+off at runtime. For the purposes of this tutorial, we will write `walken` as
+though it is intended for use as a "plumbing" command: that is, a command which
+is used primarily in scripts, rather than interactively by humans (a "porcelain"
+command). So we will send our debug output to `trace_printf()` instead. When
+running, enable trace output by setting the environment variable `GIT_TRACE`.
+
+Add usage text and `-h` handling, like all subcommands should consistently do
+(our test suite will notice and complain if you fail to do so).
+
+----
+int cmd_walken(int argc, const char **argv, const char *prefix)
+{
+ const char * const walken_usage[] = {
+ N_("git walken"),
+ NULL,
+ }
+ struct option options[] = {
+ OPT_END()
+ };
+
+ argc = parse_options(argc, argv, prefix, options, walken_usage, 0);
+
+ ...
+}
+----
+
+Also add the relevant line in `builtin.h` near `cmd_whatchanged()`:
+
+----
+int cmd_walken(int argc, const char **argv, const char *prefix);
+----
+
+Include the command in `git.c` in `commands[]` near the entry for `whatchanged`,
+maintaining alphabetical ordering:
+
+----
+{ "walken", cmd_walken, RUN_SETUP },
+----
+
+Add it to the `Makefile` near the line for `builtin/worktree.o`:
+
+----
+BUILTIN_OBJS += builtin/walken.o
+----
+
+Build and test out your command, without forgetting to ensure the `DEVELOPER`
+flag is set, and with `GIT_TRACE` enabled so the debug output can be seen:
+
+----
+$ echo DEVELOPER=1 >>config.mak
+$ make
+$ GIT_TRACE=1 ./bin-wrappers/git walken
+----
+
+NOTE: For a more exhaustive overview of the new command process, take a look at
+`Documentation/MyFirstContribution.txt`.
+
+NOTE: A reference implementation can be found at
+https://github.com/nasamuffin/git/tree/revwalk.
+
+=== `struct rev_cmdline_info`
+
+The definition of `struct rev_cmdline_info` can be found in `revision.h`.
+
+This struct is contained within the `rev_info` struct and is used to reflect
+parameters provided by the user over the CLI.
+
+`nr` represents the number of `rev_cmdline_entry` present in the array.
+
+`alloc` is used by the `ALLOC_GROW` macro. Check `cache.h` - this variable is
+used to track the allocated size of the list.
+
+Per entry, we find:
+
+`item` is the object provided upon which to base the object walk. Items in Git
+can be blobs, trees, commits, or tags. (See `Documentation/gittutorial-2.txt`.)
+
+`name` is the object ID (OID) of the object - a hex string you may be familiar
+with from using Git to organize your source in the past. Check the tutorial
+mentioned above towards the top for a discussion of where the OID can come
+from.
+
+`whence` indicates some information about what to do with the parents of the
+specified object. We'll explore this flag more later on; take a look at
+`Documentation/revisions.txt` to get an idea of what could set the `whence`
+value.
+
+`flags` are used to hint the beginning of the revision walk and are the first
+block under the `#include`s in `revision.h`. The most likely ones to be set in
+the `rev_cmdline_info` are `UNINTERESTING` and `BOTTOM`, but these same flags
+can be used during the walk, as well.
+
+=== `struct rev_info`
+
+This one is quite a bit longer, and many fields are only used during the walk
+by `revision.c` - not configuration options. Most of the configurable flags in
+`struct rev_info` have a mirror in `Documentation/rev-list-options.txt`. It's a
+good idea to take some time and read through that document.
+
+== Basic Commit Walk
+
+First, let's see if we can replicate the output of `git log --oneline`. We'll
+refer back to the implementation frequently to discover norms when performing
+an object walk of our own.
+
+To do so, we'll first find all the commits, in order, which preceded the current
+commit. We'll extract the name and subject of the commit from each.
+
+Ideally, we will also be able to find out which ones are currently at the tip of
+various branches.
+
+=== Setting Up
+
+Preparing for your object walk has some distinct stages.
+
+1. Perform default setup for this mode, and others which may be invoked.
+2. Check configuration files for relevant settings.
+3. Set up the `rev_info` struct.
+4. Tweak the initialized `rev_info` to suit the current walk.
+5. Prepare the `rev_info` for the walk.
+6. Iterate over the objects, processing each one.
+
+==== Default Setups
+
+Before examining configuration files which may modify command behavior, set up
+default state for switches or options your command may have. If your command
+utilizes other Git components, ask them to set up their default states as well.
+For instance, `git log` takes advantage of `grep` and `diff` functionality, so
+its `init_log_defaults()` sets its own state (`decoration_style`) and asks
+`grep` and `diff` to initialize themselves by calling each of their
+initialization functions.
+
+For our first example within `git walken`, we don't intend to use any other
+components within Git, and we don't have any configuration to do. However, we
+may want to add some later, so for now, we can add an empty placeholder. Create
+a new function in `builtin/walken.c`:
+
+----
+static void init_walken_defaults(void)
+{
+ /*
+ * We don't actually need the same components `git log` does; leave this
+ * empty for now.
+ */
+}
+----
+
+Make sure to add a line invoking it inside of `cmd_walken()`.
+
+----
+int cmd_walken(int argc, const char **argv, const char *prefix)
+{
+ init_walken_defaults();
+}
+----
+
+==== Configuring From `.gitconfig`
+
+Next, we should have a look at any relevant configuration settings (i.e.,
+settings readable and settable from `git config`). This is done by providing a
+callback to `git_config()`; within that callback, you can also invoke methods
+from other components you may need that need to intercept these options. Your
+callback will be invoked once per each configuration value which Git knows about
+(global, local, worktree, etc.).
+
+Similarly to the default values, we don't have anything to do here yet
+ourselves; however, we should call `git_default_config()` if we aren't calling
+any other existing config callbacks.
+
+Add a new function to `builtin/walken.c`:
+
+----
+static int git_walken_config(const char *var, const char *value, void *cb)
+{
+ /*
+ * For now, we don't have any custom configuration, so fall back to
+ * the default config.
+ */
+ return git_default_config(var, value, cb);
+}
+----
+
+Make sure to invoke `git_config()` with it in your `cmd_walken()`:
+
+----
+int cmd_walken(int argc, const char **argv, const char *prefix)
+{
+ ...
+
+ git_config(git_walken_config, NULL);
+
+ ...
+}
+----
+
+==== Setting Up `rev_info`
+
+Now that we've gathered external configuration and options, it's time to
+initialize the `rev_info` object which we will use to perform the walk. This is
+typically done by calling `repo_init_revisions()` with the repository you intend
+to target, as well as the `prefix` argument of `cmd_walken` and your `rev_info`
+struct.
+
+Add the `struct rev_info` and the `repo_init_revisions()` call:
+----
+int cmd_walken(int argc, const char **argv, const char *prefix)
+{
+ /* This can go wherever you like in your declarations.*/
+ struct rev_info rev;
+ ...
+
+ /* This should go after the git_config() call. */
+ repo_init_revisions(the_repository, &rev, prefix);
+
+ ...
+}
+----
+
+==== Tweaking `rev_info` For the Walk
+
+We're getting close, but we're still not quite ready to go. Now that `rev` is
+initialized, we can modify it to fit our needs. This is usually done within a
+helper for clarity, so let's add one:
+
+----
+static void final_rev_info_setup(struct rev_info *rev)
+{
+ /*
+ * We want to mimic the appearance of `git log --oneline`, so let's
+ * force oneline format.
+ */
+ get_commit_format("oneline", rev);
+
+ /* Start our object walk at HEAD. */
+ add_head_to_pending(rev);
+}
+----
+
+[NOTE]
+====
+Instead of using the shorthand `add_head_to_pending()`, you could do
+something like this:
+----
+ struct setup_revision_opt opt;
+
+ memset(&opt, 0, sizeof(opt));
+ opt.def = "HEAD";
+ opt.revarg_opt = REVARG_COMMITTISH;
+ setup_revisions(argc, argv, rev, &opt);
+----
+Using a `setup_revision_opt` gives you finer control over your walk's starting
+point.
+====
+
+Then let's invoke `final_rev_info_setup()` after the call to
+`repo_init_revisions()`:
+
+----
+int cmd_walken(int argc, const char **argv, const char *prefix)
+{
+ ...
+
+ final_rev_info_setup(&rev);
+
+ ...
+}
+----
+
+Later, we may wish to add more arguments to `final_rev_info_setup()`. But for
+now, this is all we need.
+
+==== Preparing `rev_info` For the Walk
+
+Now that `rev` is all initialized and configured, we've got one more setup step
+before we get rolling. We can do this in a helper, which will both prepare the
+`rev_info` for the walk, and perform the walk itself. Let's start the helper
+with the call to `prepare_revision_walk()`, which can return an error without
+dying on its own:
+
+----
+static void walken_commit_walk(struct rev_info *rev)
+{
+ if (prepare_revision_walk(rev))
+ die(_("revision walk setup failed"));
+}
+----
+
+NOTE: `die()` prints to `stderr` and exits the program. Since it will print to
+`stderr` it's likely to be seen by a human, so we will localize it.
+
+==== Performing the Walk!
+
+Finally! We are ready to begin the walk itself. Now we can see that `rev_info`
+can also be used as an iterator; we move to the next item in the walk by using
+`get_revision()` repeatedly. Add the listed variable declarations at the top and
+the walk loop below the `prepare_revision_walk()` call within your
+`walken_commit_walk()`:
+
+----
+static void walken_commit_walk(struct rev_info *rev)
+{
+ struct commit *commit;
+ struct strbuf prettybuf = STRBUF_INIT;
+
+ ...
+
+ while ((commit = get_revision(rev))) {
+ if (!commit)
+ continue;
+
+ strbuf_reset(&prettybuf);
+ pp_commit_easy(CMIT_FMT_ONELINE, commit, &prettybuf);
+ puts(prettybuf.buf);
+ }
+ strbuf_release(&prettybuf);
+}
+----
+
+NOTE: `puts()` prints a `char*` to `stdout`. Since this is the part of the
+command we expect to be machine-parsed, we're sending it directly to stdout.
+
+Give it a shot.
+
+----
+$ make
+$ ./bin-wrappers/git walken
+----
+
+You should see all of the subject lines of all the commits in
+your tree's history, in order, ending with the initial commit, "Initial revision
+of "git", the information manager from hell". Congratulations! You've written
+your first revision walk. You can play with printing some additional fields
+from each commit if you're curious; have a look at the functions available in
+`commit.h`.
+
+=== Adding a Filter
+
+Next, let's try to filter the commits we see based on their author. This is
+equivalent to running `git log --author=<pattern>`. We can add a filter by
+modifying `rev_info.grep_filter`, which is a `struct grep_opt`.
+
+First some setup. Add `init_grep_defaults()` to `init_walken_defaults()` and add
+`grep_config()` to `git_walken_config()`:
+
+----
+static void init_walken_defaults(void)
+{
+ init_grep_defaults(the_repository);
+}
+
+...
+
+static int git_walken_config(const char *var, const char *value, void *cb)
+{
+ grep_config(var, value, cb);
+ return git_default_config(var, value, cb);
+}
+----
+
+Next, we can modify the `grep_filter`. This is done with convenience functions
+found in `grep.h`. For fun, we're filtering to only commits from folks using a
+`gmail.com` email address - a not-very-precise guess at who may be working on
+Git as a hobby. Since we're checking the author, which is a specific line in the
+header, we'll use the `append_header_grep_pattern()` helper. We can use
+the `enum grep_header_field` to indicate which part of the commit header we want
+to search.
+
+In `final_rev_info_setup()`, add your filter line:
+
+----
+static void final_rev_info_setup(int argc, const char **argv,
+ const char *prefix, struct rev_info *rev)
+{
+ ...
+
+ append_header_grep_pattern(&rev->grep_filter, GREP_HEADER_AUTHOR,
+ "gmail");
+ compile_grep_patterns(&rev->grep_filter);
+
+ ...
+}
+----
+
+`append_header_grep_pattern()` adds your new "gmail" pattern to `rev_info`, but
+it won't work unless we compile it with `compile_grep_patterns()`.
+
+NOTE: If you are using `setup_revisions()` (for example, if you are passing a
+`setup_revision_opt` instead of using `add_head_to_pending()`), you don't need
+to call `compile_grep_patterns()` because `setup_revisions()` calls it for you.
+
+NOTE: We could add the same filter via the `append_grep_pattern()` helper if we
+wanted to, but `append_header_grep_pattern()` adds the `enum grep_context` and
+`enum grep_pat_token` for us.
+
+=== Changing the Order
+
+There are a few ways that we can change the order of the commits during a
+revision walk. Firstly, we can use the `enum rev_sort_order` to choose from some
+typical orderings.
+
+`topo_order` is the same as `git log --topo-order`: we avoid showing a parent
+before all of its children have been shown, and we avoid mixing commits which
+are in different lines of history. (`git help log`'s section on `--topo-order`
+has a very nice diagram to illustrate this.)
+
+Let's see what happens when we run with `REV_SORT_BY_COMMIT_DATE` as opposed to
+`REV_SORT_BY_AUTHOR_DATE`. Add the following:
+
+----
+static void final_rev_info_setup(int argc, const char **argv,
+ const char *prefix, struct rev_info *rev)
+{
+ ...
+
+ rev->topo_order = 1;
+ rev->sort_order = REV_SORT_BY_COMMIT_DATE;
+
+ ...
+}
+----
+
+Let's output this into a file so we can easily diff it with the walk sorted by
+author date.
+
+----
+$ make
+$ ./bin-wrappers/git walken > commit-date.txt
+----
+
+Then, let's sort by author date and run it again.
+
+----
+static void final_rev_info_setup(int argc, const char **argv,
+ const char *prefix, struct rev_info *rev)
+{
+ ...
+
+ rev->topo_order = 1;
+ rev->sort_order = REV_SORT_BY_AUTHOR_DATE;
+
+ ...
+}
+----
+
+----
+$ make
+$ ./bin-wrappers/git walken > author-date.txt
+----
+
+Finally, compare the two. This is a little less helpful without object names or
+dates, but hopefully we get the idea.
+
+----
+$ diff -u commit-date.txt author-date.txt
+----
+
+This display indicates that commits can be reordered after they're written, for
+example with `git rebase`.
+
+Let's try one more reordering of commits. `rev_info` exposes a `reverse` flag.
+Set that flag somewhere inside of `final_rev_info_setup()`:
+
+----
+static void final_rev_info_setup(int argc, const char **argv, const char *prefix,
+ struct rev_info *rev)
+{
+ ...
+
+ rev->reverse = 1;
+
+ ...
+}
+----
+
+Run your walk again and note the difference in order. (If you remove the grep
+pattern, you should see the last commit this call gives you as your current
+HEAD.)
+
+== Basic Object Walk
+
+So far we've been walking only commits. But Git has more types of objects than
+that! Let's see if we can walk _all_ objects, and find out some information
+about each one.
+
+We can base our work on an example. `git pack-objects` prepares all kinds of
+objects for packing into a bitmap or packfile. The work we are interested in
+resides in `builtins/pack-objects.c:get_object_list()`; examination of that
+function shows that the all-object walk is being performed by
+`traverse_commit_list()` or `traverse_commit_list_filtered()`. Those two
+functions reside in `list-objects.c`; examining the source shows that, despite
+the name, these functions traverse all kinds of objects. Let's have a look at
+the arguments to `traverse_commit_list_filtered()`, which are a superset of the
+arguments to the unfiltered version.
+
+- `struct list_objects_filter_options *filter_options`: This is a struct which
+ stores a filter-spec as outlined in `Documentation/rev-list-options.txt`.
+- `struct rev_info *revs`: This is the `rev_info` used for the walk.
+- `show_commit_fn show_commit`: A callback which will be used to handle each
+ individual commit object.
+- `show_object_fn show_object`: A callback which will be used to handle each
+ non-commit object (so each blob, tree, or tag).
+- `void *show_data`: A context buffer which is passed in turn to `show_commit`
+ and `show_object`.
+- `struct oidset *omitted`: A linked-list of object IDs which the provided
+ filter caused to be omitted.
+
+It looks like this `traverse_commit_list_filtered()` uses callbacks we provide
+instead of needing us to call it repeatedly ourselves. Cool! Let's add the
+callbacks first.
+
+For the sake of this tutorial, we'll simply keep track of how many of each kind
+of object we find. At file scope in `builtin/walken.c` add the following
+tracking variables:
+
+----
+static int commit_count;
+static int tag_count;
+static int blob_count;
+static int tree_count;
+----
+
+Commits are handled by a different callback than other objects; let's do that
+one first:
+
+----
+static void walken_show_commit(struct commit *cmt, void *buf)
+{
+ commit_count++;
+}
+----
+
+The `cmt` argument is fairly self-explanatory. But it's worth mentioning that
+the `buf` argument is actually the context buffer that we can provide to the
+traversal calls - `show_data`, which we mentioned a moment ago.
+
+Since we have the `struct commit` object, we can look at all the same parts that
+we looked at in our earlier commit-only walk. For the sake of this tutorial,
+though, we'll just increment the commit counter and move on.
+
+The callback for non-commits is a little different, as we'll need to check
+which kind of object we're dealing with:
+
+----
+static void walken_show_object(struct object *obj, const char *str, void *buf)
+{
+ switch (obj->type) {
+ case OBJ_TREE:
+ tree_count++;
+ break;
+ case OBJ_BLOB:
+ blob_count++;
+ break;
+ case OBJ_TAG:
+ tag_count++;
+ break;
+ case OBJ_COMMIT:
+ BUG("unexpected commit object in walken_show_object\n");
+ default:
+ BUG("unexpected object type %s in walken_show_object\n",
+ type_name(obj->type));
+ }
+}
+----
+
+Again, `obj` is fairly self-explanatory, and we can guess that `buf` is the same
+context pointer that `walken_show_commit()` receives: the `show_data` argument
+to `traverse_commit_list()` and `traverse_commit_list_filtered()`. Finally,
+`str` contains the name of the object, which ends up being something like
+`foo.txt` (blob), `bar/baz` (tree), or `v1.2.3` (tag).
+
+To help assure us that we aren't double-counting commits, we'll include some
+complaining if a commit object is routed through our non-commit callback; we'll
+also complain if we see an invalid object type. Since those two cases should be
+unreachable, and would only change in the event of a semantic change to the Git
+codebase, we complain by using `BUG()` - which is a signal to a developer that
+the change they made caused unintended consequences, and the rest of the
+codebase needs to be updated to understand that change. `BUG()` is not intended
+to be seen by the public, so it is not localized.
+
+Our main object walk implementation is substantially different from our commit
+walk implementation, so let's make a new function to perform the object walk. We
+can perform setup which is applicable to all objects here, too, to keep separate
+from setup which is applicable to commit-only walks.
+
+We'll start by enabling all types of objects in the `struct rev_info`. We'll
+also turn on `tree_blobs_in_commit_order`, which means that we will walk a
+commit's tree and everything it points to immediately after we find each commit,
+as opposed to waiting for the end and walking through all trees after the commit
+history has been discovered. With the appropriate settings configured, we are
+ready to call `prepare_revision_walk()`.
+
+----
+static void walken_object_walk(struct rev_info *rev)
+{
+ rev->tree_objects = 1;
+ rev->blob_objects = 1;
+ rev->tag_objects = 1;
+ rev->tree_blobs_in_commit_order = 1;
+
+ if (prepare_revision_walk(rev))
+ die(_("revision walk setup failed"));
+
+ commit_count = 0;
+ tag_count = 0;
+ blob_count = 0;
+ tree_count = 0;
+----
+
+Let's start by calling just the unfiltered walk and reporting our counts.
+Complete your implementation of `walken_object_walk()`:
+
+----
+ traverse_commit_list(rev, walken_show_commit, walken_show_object, NULL);
+
+ printf("commits %d\nblobs %d\ntags %d\ntrees %d\n", commit_count,
+ blob_count, tag_count, tree_count);
+}
+----
+
+NOTE: This output is intended to be machine-parsed. Therefore, we are not
+sending it to `trace_printf()`, and we are not localizing it - we need scripts
+to be able to count on the formatting to be exactly the way it is shown here.
+If we were intending this output to be read by humans, we would need to localize
+it with `_()`.
+
+Finally, we'll ask `cmd_walken()` to use the object walk instead. Discussing
+command line options is out of scope for this tutorial, so we'll just hardcode
+a branch we can change at compile time. Where you call `final_rev_info_setup()`
+and `walken_commit_walk()`, instead branch like so:
+
+----
+ if (1) {
+ add_head_to_pending(&rev);
+ walken_object_walk(&rev);
+ } else {
+ final_rev_info_setup(argc, argv, prefix, &rev);
+ walken_commit_walk(&rev);
+ }
+----
+
+NOTE: For simplicity, we've avoided all the filters and sorts we applied in
+`final_rev_info_setup()` and simply added `HEAD` to our pending queue. If you
+want, you can certainly use the filters we added before by moving
+`final_rev_info_setup()` out of the conditional and removing the call to
+`add_head_to_pending()`.
+
+Now we can try to run our command! It should take noticeably longer than the
+commit walk, but an examination of the output will give you an idea why. Your
+output should look similar to this example, but with different counts:
+
+----
+Object walk completed. Found 55733 commits, 100274 blobs, 0 tags, and 104210 trees.
+----
+
+This makes sense. We have more trees than commits because the Git project has
+lots of subdirectories which can change, plus at least one tree per commit. We
+have no tags because we started on a commit (`HEAD`) and while tags can point to
+commits, commits can't point to tags.
+
+NOTE: You will have different counts when you run this yourself! The number of
+objects grows along with the Git project.
+
+=== Adding a Filter
+
+There are a handful of filters that we can apply to the object walk laid out in
+`Documentation/rev-list-options.txt`. These filters are typically useful for
+operations such as creating packfiles or performing a partial clone. They are
+defined in `list-objects-filter-options.h`. For the purposes of this tutorial we
+will use the "tree:1" filter, which causes the walk to omit all trees and blobs
+which are not directly referenced by commits reachable from the commit in
+`pending` when the walk begins. (`pending` is the list of objects which need to
+be traversed during a walk; you can imagine a breadth-first tree traversal to
+help understand. In our case, that means we omit trees and blobs not directly
+referenced by `HEAD` or `HEAD`'s history, because we begin the walk with only
+`HEAD` in the `pending` list.)
+
+First, we'll need to `#include "list-objects-filter-options.h`" and set up the
+`struct list_objects_filter_options` at the top of the function.
+
+----
+static void walken_object_walk(struct rev_info *rev)
+{
+ struct list_objects_filter_options filter_options = {};
+
+ ...
+----
+
+For now, we are not going to track the omitted objects, so we'll replace those
+parameters with `NULL`. For the sake of simplicity, we'll add a simple
+build-time branch to use our filter or not. Replace the line calling
+`traverse_commit_list()` with the following, which will remind us which kind of
+walk we've just performed:
+
+----
+ if (0) {
+ /* Unfiltered: */
+ trace_printf(_("Unfiltered object walk.\n"));
+ traverse_commit_list(rev, walken_show_commit,
+ walken_show_object, NULL);
+ } else {
+ trace_printf(
+ _("Filtered object walk with filterspec 'tree:1'.\n"));
+ parse_list_objects_filter(&filter_options, "tree:1");
+
+ traverse_commit_list_filtered(&filter_options, rev,
+ walken_show_commit, walken_show_object, NULL, NULL);
+ }
+----
+
+`struct list_objects_filter_options` is usually built directly from a command
+line argument, so the module provides an easy way to build one from a string.
+Even though we aren't taking user input right now, we can still build one with
+a hardcoded string using `parse_list_objects_filter()`.
+
+With the filter spec "tree:1", we are expecting to see _only_ the root tree for
+each commit; therefore, the tree object count should be less than or equal to
+the number of commits. (For an example of why that's true: `git commit --revert`
+points to the same tree object as its grandparent.)
+
+=== Counting Omitted Objects
+
+We also have the capability to enumerate all objects which were omitted by a
+filter, like with `git log --filter=<spec> --filter-print-omitted`. Asking
+`traverse_commit_list_filtered()` to populate the `omitted` list means that our
+object walk does not perform any better than an unfiltered object walk; all
+reachable objects are walked in order to populate the list.
+
+First, add the `struct oidset` and related items we will use to iterate it:
+
+----
+static void walken_object_walk(
+ ...
+
+ struct oidset omitted;
+ struct oidset_iter oit;
+ struct object_id *oid = NULL;
+ int omitted_count = 0;
+ oidset_init(&omitted, 0);
+
+ ...
+----
+
+Modify the call to `traverse_commit_list_filtered()` to include your `omitted`
+object:
+
+----
+ ...
+
+ traverse_commit_list_filtered(&filter_options, rev,
+ walken_show_commit, walken_show_object, NULL, &omitted);
+
+ ...
+----
+
+Then, after your traversal, the `oidset` traversal is pretty straightforward.
+Count all the objects within and modify the print statement:
+
+----
+ /* Count the omitted objects. */
+ oidset_iter_init(&omitted, &oit);
+
+ while ((oid = oidset_iter_next(&oit)))
+ omitted_count++;
+
+ printf("commits %d\nblobs %d\ntags %d\ntrees%d\nomitted %d\n",
+ commit_count, blob_count, tag_count, tree_count, omitted_count);
+----
+
+By running your walk with and without the filter, you should find that the total
+object count in each case is identical. You can also time each invocation of
+the `walken` subcommand, with and without `omitted` being passed in, to confirm
+to yourself the runtime impact of tracking all omitted objects.
+
+=== Changing the Order
+
+Finally, let's demonstrate that you can also reorder walks of all objects, not
+just walks of commits. First, we'll make our handlers chattier - modify
+`walken_show_commit()` and `walken_show_object()` to print the object as they
+go:
+
+----
+static void walken_show_commit(struct commit *cmt, void *buf)
+{
+ trace_printf("commit: %s\n", oid_to_hex(&cmt->object.oid));
+ commit_count++;
+}
+
+static void walken_show_object(struct object *obj, const char *str, void *buf)
+{
+ trace_printf("%s: %s\n", type_name(obj->type), oid_to_hex(&obj->oid));
+
+ ...
+}
+----
+
+NOTE: Since we will be examining this output directly as humans, we'll use
+`trace_printf()` here. Additionally, since this change introduces a significant
+number of printed lines, using `trace_printf()` will allow us to easily silence
+those lines without having to recompile.
+
+(Leave the counter increment logic in place.)
+
+With only that change, run again (but save yourself some scrollback):
+
+----
+$ GIT_TRACE=1 ./bin-wrappers/git walken | head -n 10
+----
+
+Take a look at the top commit with `git show` and the object ID you printed; it
+should be the same as the output of `git show HEAD`.
+
+Next, let's change a setting on our `struct rev_info` within
+`walken_object_walk()`. Find where you're changing the other settings on `rev`,
+such as `rev->tree_objects` and `rev->tree_blobs_in_commit_order`, and add the
+`reverse` setting at the bottom:
+
+----
+ ...
+
+ rev->tree_objects = 1;
+ rev->blob_objects = 1;
+ rev->tag_objects = 1;
+ rev->tree_blobs_in_commit_order = 1;
+ rev->reverse = 1;
+
+ ...
+----
+
+Now, run again, but this time, let's grab the last handful of objects instead
+of the first handful:
+
+----
+$ make
+$ GIT_TRACE=1 ./bin-wrappers git walken | tail -n 10
+----
+
+The last commit object given should have the same OID as the one we saw at the
+top before, and running `git show <oid>` with that OID should give you again
+the same results as `git show HEAD`. Furthermore, if you run and examine the
+first ten lines again (with `head` instead of `tail` like we did before applying
+the `reverse` setting), you should see that now the first commit printed is the
+initial commit, `e83c5163`.
+

+Git 2.25 Release Notes
+======================
+
+Updates since v2.24
+-------------------
+
+Backward compatibility notes
+
+
+UI, Workflows & Features
+
+ * A tutorial on object enumeration has been added.
+
+ * The branch description ("git branch --edit-description") has been
+ used to fill the body of the cover letters by the format-patch
+ command; this has been enhanced so that the subject can also be
+ filled.
+
+ * "git rebase --preserve-merges" has been marked as deprecated; this
+ release stops advertising it in the "git rebase -h" output.
+
+ * The code to generate multi-pack index learned to show (or not to
+ show) progress indicators.
+
+ * "git apply --3way" learned to honor merge.conflictStyle
+ configuration variable, like merges would.
+
+ * The custom format for "git log --format=<format>" learned the l/L
+ placeholder that is similar to e/E that fills in the e-mail
+ address, but only the local part on the left side of '@'.
+
+ * Documentation pages for "git shortlog" now list commit limiting
+ options explicitly.
+
+ * The patterns to detect function boundary for Elixir language has
+ been added.
+
+ * The completion script (in contrib/) learned that the "--onto"
+ option of "git rebase" can take its argument as the value of the
+ option.
+
+ * The userdiff machinery has been taught that "async def" is another
+ way to begin a "function" in Python.
+
+ * "git range-diff" learned to take the "--notes=<ref>" and the
+ "--no-notes" options to control the commit notes included in the
+ log message that gets compared.
+
+ * "git rev-parse --show-toplevel" run outside of any working tree did
+ not error out, which has been corrected.
+
+ * A few commands learned to take the pathspec from the standard input
+ or a named file, instead of taking it as the command line
+ arguments, with the "--pathspec-from-file" option.
+
+ * "git submodule" learned a subcommand "set-url".
+
+ * "git log" family learned "--pretty=reference" that gives the name
+ of a commit in the format that is often used to refer to it in log
+ messages.
+
+ * The interaction between "git clone --recurse-submodules" and
+ alternate object store was ill-designed. The documentation and
+ code have been taught to make more clear recommendations when the
+ users see failures.
+
+ * Management of sparsely checked-out working tree has gained a
+ dedicated "sparse-checkout" command.
+
+ * Miscellaneous small UX improvements on "git-p4".
+
+ * "git sparse-checkout list" subcommand learned to give its output in
+ a more concise form when the "cone" mode is in effect.
+
+
+Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.
+
+ * Debugging support for lazy cloning has been a bit improved.
+
+ * Move the definition of a set of bitmask constants from 0ctal
+ literal to (1U<<count) notation.
+
+ * Test updates to prepare for SHA-2 transition continues.
+
+ * Crufty code and logic accumulated over time around the object
+ parsing and low-level object access used in "git fsck" have been
+ cleaned up.
+
+ * The implementation of "git log --graph" got refactored and then its
+ output got simplified.
+
+ * Follow recent push to move API docs from Documentation/ to header
+ files and update config.h
+
+ * "git bundle" has been taught to use the parse options API. "git
+ bundle verify" learned "--quiet" and "git bundle create" learned
+ options to control the progress output.
+
+ * Handling of commit objects that use non UTF-8 encoding during
+ "rebase -i" has been improved.
+
+ * The beginning of rewriting "git add -i" in C.
+
+ * A label used in the todo list that are generated by "git rebase
+ --rebase-merges" is used as a part of a refname; the logic to come
+ up with the label has been tightened to avoid names that cannot be
+ used as such.
+
+ * The logic to avoid duplicate label names generated by "git rebase
+ --rebase-merges" forgot that the machinery itself uses "onto" as a
+ label name, which must be avoided by auto-generated labels, which
+ has been corrected.
+
+ * We have had compatibility fallback macro definitions for "PRIuMAX",
+ "PRIu32", etc. but did not for "PRIdMAX", while the code used the
+ last one apparently without any hiccup reported recently. The
+ fallback macro definitions for these <inttypes.h> macros that must
+ appear in C99 systems have been removed.
+
+ * Recently we have declared that GIT_TEST_* variables take the
+ usual boolean values (it used to be that some used "non-empty
+ means true" and taking GIT_TEST_VAR=YesPlease as true); make
+ sure we notice and fail when non-bool strings are given to
+ these variables.
+
+ * Users of oneway_merge() (like "reset --hard") learned to take
+ advantage of fsmonitor to avoid unnecessary lstat(2) calls.
+
+ * Performance tweak on "git push" into a repository with many refs
+ that point at objects we have never heard of.
+
+ * PerfTest fix to avoid stale result mixed up with the latest round
+ of test results.
+
+ * Hide lower-level verify_signed-buffer() API as a pure helper to
+ implement the public check_signature() function, in order to
+ encourage new callers to use the correct and more strict
+ validation.
+
+ * Unnecessary reading of state variables back from the disk during
+ sequencer operation has been reduced.
+
+ * The code has been made to avoid gmtime() and localtime() and prefer
+ their reentrant counterparts.
+
+ * In a repository with many packfiles, the cost of the procedure that
+ avoids registering the same packfile twice was unnecessarily high
+ by using an inefficient search algorithm, which has been corrected.
+
+ * Redo "git name-rev" to avoid recursive calls.
+
+ * FreeBSD CI support via Cirrus-CI has been added.
+
+
+Fixes since v2.24
+-----------------
+
+ * "rebase -i" ceased to run post-commit hook by mistake in an earlier
+ update, which has been corrected.
+
+ * "git notes copy $original" ought to copy the notes attached to the
+ original object to HEAD, but a mistaken tightening to command line
+ parameter validation made earlier disabled that feature by mistake.
+
+ * When all files from some subdirectory were renamed to the root
+ directory, the directory rename heuristics would fail to detect that
+ as a rename/merge of the subdirectory to the root directory, which has
+ been corrected.
+
+ * Code clean-up and a bugfix in the logic used to tell worktree local
+ and repository global refs apart.
+ (merge f45f88b2e4 sg/dir-trie-fixes later to maint).
+
+ * "git stash save" in a working tree that is sparsely checked out
+ mistakenly removed paths that are outside the area of interest.
+ (merge 4a58c3d7f7 js/update-index-ignore-removal-for-skip-worktree later to maint).
+
+ * "git rev-parse --git-path HEAD.lock" did not give the right path
+ when run in a secondary worktree.
+ (merge 76a53d640f js/git-path-head-dot-lock-fix later to maint).
+
+ * "git merge --no-commit" needs "--no-ff" if you do not want to move
+ HEAD, which has been corrected in the manual page for "git bisect".
+ (merge 8dd327b246 ma/bisect-doc-sample-update later to maint).
+
+ * "git worktree add" internally calls "reset --hard" that should not
+ descend into submodules, even when submodule.recurse configuration
+ is set, but it was affected. This has been corrected.
+ (merge 4782cf2ab6 pb/no-recursive-reset-hard-in-worktree-add later to maint).
+
+ * Messages from die() etc. can be mixed up from multiple processes
+ without even line buffering on Windows, which has been worked
+ around.
+ (merge 116d1fa6c6 js/vreportf-wo-buffering later to maint).
+
+ * HTTP transport had possible allocator/deallocator mismatch, which
+ has been corrected.
+
+ * The watchman integration for fsmonitor was racy, which has been
+ corrected to be more conservative.
+ (merge dd0b61f577 kw/fsmonitor-watchman-fix later to maint).
+
+ * Fetching from multiple remotes into the same repository in parallel
+ had a bad interaction with the recent change to (optionally) update
+ the commit-graph after a fetch job finishes, as these parallel
+ fetches compete with each other. Which has been corrected.
+
+ * Recent update to "git stash pop" made the command empty the index
+ when run with the "--quiet" option, which has been corrected.
+
+ * "git fetch" codepath had a big "do not lazily fetch missing objects
+ when I ask if something exists" switch. This has been corrected by
+ marking the "does this thing exist?" calls with "if not please do not
+ lazily fetch it" flag.
+
+ * Test update to avoid wasted cycles.
+ (merge e0316695ec sg/skip-skipped-prereq later to maint).
+
+ * Error handling after "git push" finishes sending the packdata and
+ waits for the response to the remote side has been improved.
+ (merge ad7a403268 jk/send-pack-remote-failure later to maint).
+
+ * Some codepaths in "gitweb" that forgot to escape URLs generated
+ based on end-user input have been corrected.
+ (merge a376e37b2c jk/gitweb-anti-xss later to maint).
+
+ * CI jobs for macOS has been made less chatty when updating perforce
+ package used during testing.
+ (merge 0dbc4a0edf jc/azure-ci-osx-fix-fix later to maint).
+
+ * "git unpack-objects" used to show progress based only on the number
+ of received and unpacked objects, which stalled when it has to
+ handle an unusually large object. It now shows the throughput as
+ well.
+ (merge bae60ba7e9 sg/unpack-progress-throughput later to maint).

+Git 2.25.1 Release Notes
+========================
+
+Fixes since v2.25
+-----------------
+
+ * "git commit" gives output similar to "git status" when there is
+ nothing to commit, but without honoring the advise.statusHints
+ configuration variable, which has been corrected.
+
+ * has_object_file() said "no" given an object registered to the
+ system via pretend_object_file(), making it inconsistent with
+ read_object_file(), causing lazy fetch to attempt fetching an
+ empty tree from promisor remotes.
+
+ * The code that tries to skip over the entries for the paths in a
+ single directory using the cache-tree was not careful enough
+ against corrupt index file.
+
+ * Complete an update to tutorial that encourages "git switch" over
+ "git checkout" that was done only half-way.
+
+ * Reduce unnecessary round-trip when running "ls-remote" over the
+ stateless RPC mechanism.
+
+ * "git restore --staged" did not correctly update the cache-tree
+ structure, resulting in bogus trees to be written afterwards, which
+ has been corrected.
+
+ * The code recently added to move to the entry beyond the ones in the
+ same directory in the index in the sparse-cone mode did not count
+ the number of entries to skip over incorrectly, which has been
+ corrected.
+
+ * Work around test breakages caused by custom regex engine used in
+ libasan, when address sanitizer is used with more recent versions
+ of gcc and clang.
+
+ * "git fetch --refmap=" option has got a better documentation.
+
+ * Corner case bugs in "git clean" that stems from a (necessarily for
+ performance reasons) awkward calling convention in the directory
+ enumeration API has been corrected.
+
+ * "git grep --no-index" should not get affected by the contents of
+ the .gitmodules file but when "--recurse-submodules" is given or
+ the "submodule.recurse" variable is set, it did. Now these
+ settings are ignored in the "--no-index" mode.
+
+ * Technical details of the bundle format has been documented.
+
+ * Unhelpful warning messages during documentation build have been
+ squelched.
+
+Also contains various documentation updates, code clean-ups and minor fixups.

+COMMIT INFORMATION
+------------------
+
+Author and committer information is taken from the following environment
+variables, if set:
+
+ GIT_AUTHOR_NAME
+ GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL
+ GIT_AUTHOR_DATE
+ GIT_COMMITTER_NAME
+ GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL
+ GIT_COMMITTER_DATE
+
+(nb "<", ">" and "\n"s are stripped)
+
+The author and committer names are by convention some form of a personal name
+(that is, the name by which other humans refer to you), although Git does not
+enforce or require any particular form. Arbitrary Unicode may be used, subject
+to the constraints listed above. This name has no effect on authentication; for
+that, see the `credential.username` variable in linkgit:git-config[1].
+
+In case (some of) these environment variables are not set, the information
+is taken from the configuration items `user.name` and `user.email`, or, if not
+present, the environment variable EMAIL, or, if that is not set,
+system user name and the hostname used for outgoing mail (taken
+from `/etc/mailname` and falling back to the fully qualified hostname when
+that file does not exist).
+
+The `author.name` and `committer.name` and their corresponding email options
+override `user.name` and `user.email` if set and are overridden themselves by
+the environment variables.
+
+The typical usage is to set just the `user.name` and `user.email` variables;
+the other options are provided for more complex use cases.

+======================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-sparse-checkout - Initialize and modify the sparse-checkout
+configuration, which reduces the checkout to a set of paths
+given by a list of patterns.
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git sparse-checkout <subcommand> [options]'
+
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+
+Initialize and modify the sparse-checkout configuration, which reduces
+the checkout to a set of paths given by a list of patterns.
+
+THIS COMMAND IS EXPERIMENTAL. ITS BEHAVIOR, AND THE BEHAVIOR OF OTHER
+COMMANDS IN THE PRESENCE OF SPARSE-CHECKOUTS, WILL LIKELY CHANGE IN
+THE FUTURE.
+
+
+COMMANDS
+--------
+'list'::
+ Describe the patterns in the sparse-checkout file.
+
+'init'::
+ Enable the `core.sparseCheckout` setting. If the
+ sparse-checkout file does not exist, then populate it with
+ patterns that match every file in the root directory and
+ no other directories, then will remove all directories tracked
+ by Git. Add patterns to the sparse-checkout file to
+ repopulate the working directory.
++
+To avoid interfering with other worktrees, it first enables the
+`extensions.worktreeConfig` setting and makes sure to set the
+`core.sparseCheckout` setting in the worktree-specific config file.
+
+'set'::
+ Write a set of patterns to the sparse-checkout file, as given as
+ a list of arguments following the 'set' subcommand. Update the
+ working directory to match the new patterns. Enable the
+ core.sparseCheckout config setting if it is not already enabled.
++
+When the `--stdin` option is provided, the patterns are read from
+standard in as a newline-delimited list instead of from the arguments.
+
+'disable'::
+ Disable the `core.sparseCheckout` config setting, and restore the
+ working directory to include all files. Leaves the sparse-checkout
+ file intact so a later 'git sparse-checkout init' command may
+ return the working directory to the same state.
+
+SPARSE CHECKOUT
+---------------
+
+"Sparse checkout" allows populating the working directory sparsely.
+It uses the skip-worktree bit (see linkgit:git-update-index[1]) to tell
+Git whether a file in the working directory is worth looking at. If
+the skip-worktree bit is set, then the file is ignored in the working
+directory. Git will not populate the contents of those files, which
+makes a sparse checkout helpful when working in a repository with many
+files, but only a few are important to the current user.
+
+The `$GIT_DIR/info/sparse-checkout` file is used to define the
+skip-worktree reference bitmap. When Git updates the working
+directory, it updates the skip-worktree bits in the index based
+on this file. The files matching the patterns in the file will
+appear in the working directory, and the rest will not.
+
+To enable the sparse-checkout feature, run `git sparse-checkout init` to
+initialize a simple sparse-checkout file and enable the `core.sparseCheckout`
+config setting. Then, run `git sparse-checkout set` to modify the patterns in
+the sparse-checkout file.
+
+To repopulate the working directory with all files, use the
+`git sparse-checkout disable` command.
+
+
+FULL PATTERN SET
+----------------
+
+By default, the sparse-checkout file uses the same syntax as `.gitignore`
+files.
+
+While `$GIT_DIR/info/sparse-checkout` is usually used to specify what
+files are included, you can also specify what files are _not_ included,
+using negative patterns. For example, to remove the file `unwanted`:
+
+----------------
+/*
+!unwanted
+----------------
+
+
+CONE PATTERN SET
+----------------
+
+The full pattern set allows for arbitrary pattern matches and complicated
+inclusion/exclusion rules. These can result in O(N*M) pattern matches when
+updating the index, where N is the number of patterns and M is the number
+of paths in the index. To combat this performance issue, a more restricted
+pattern set is allowed when `core.spareCheckoutCone` is enabled.
+
+The accepted patterns in the cone pattern set are:
+
+1. *Recursive:* All paths inside a directory are included.
+
+2. *Parent:* All files immediately inside a directory are included.
+
+In addition to the above two patterns, we also expect that all files in the
+root directory are included. If a recursive pattern is added, then all
+leading directories are added as parent patterns.
+
+By default, when running `git sparse-checkout init`, the root directory is
+added as a parent pattern. At this point, the sparse-checkout file contains
+the following patterns:
+
+----------------
+/*
+!/*/
+----------------
+
+This says "include everything in root, but nothing two levels below root."
+If we then add the folder `A/B/C` as a recursive pattern, the folders `A` and
+`A/B` are added as parent patterns. The resulting sparse-checkout file is
+now
+
+----------------
+/*
+!/*/
+/A/
+!/A/*/
+/A/B/
+!/A/B/*/
+/A/B/C/
+----------------
+
+Here, order matters, so the negative patterns are overridden by the positive
+patterns that appear lower in the file.
+
+If `core.sparseCheckoutCone=true`, then Git will parse the sparse-checkout file
+expecting patterns of these types. Git will warn if the patterns do not match.
+If the patterns do match the expected format, then Git will use faster hash-
+based algorithms to compute inclusion in the sparse-checkout.
+
+In the cone mode case, the `git sparse-checkout list` subcommand will list the
+directories that define the recursive patterns. For the example sparse-checkout
+file above, the output is as follows:
+
+--------------------------
+$ git sparse-checkout list
+A/B/C
+--------------------------
+
+If `core.ignoreCase=true`, then the pattern-matching algorithm will use a
+case-insensitive check. This corrects for case mismatched filenames in the
+'git sparse-checkout set' command to reflect the expected cone in the working
+directory.
+
+
+SUBMODULES
+----------
+
+If your repository contains one or more submodules, then those submodules will
+appear based on which you initialized with the `git submodule` command. If
+your sparse-checkout patterns exclude an initialized submodule, then that
+submodule will still appear in your working directory.

+-----
+
+Users often try to use the assume-unchanged and skip-worktree bits
+to tell Git to ignore changes to files that are tracked. This does not
+work as expected, since Git may still check working tree files against
+the index when performing certain operations. In general, Git does not
+provide a way to ignore changes to tracked files, so alternate solutions
+are recommended.
+
+For example, if the file you want to change is some sort of config file,
+the repository can include a sample config file that can then be copied
+into the ignored name and modified. The repository can even include a
+script to treat the sample file as a template, modifying and copying it
+automatically.

-allocation growing API
-======================
-
-Dynamically growing an array using realloc() is error prone and boring.
-
-Define your array with:
-
-* a pointer (`item`) that points at the array, initialized to `NULL`
- (although please name the variable based on its contents, not on its
- type);
-
-* an integer variable (`alloc`) that keeps track of how big the current
- allocation is, initialized to `0`;
-
-* another integer variable (`nr`) to keep track of how many elements the
- array currently has, initialized to `0`.
-
-Then before adding `n`th element to the item, call `ALLOC_GROW(item, n,
-alloc)`. This ensures that the array can hold at least `n` elements by
-calling `realloc(3)` and adjusting `alloc` variable.
-
-------------
-sometype *item;
-size_t nr;
-size_t alloc
-
-for (i = 0; i < nr; i++)
- if (we like item[i] already)
- return;
-
-/* we did not like any existing one, so add one */
-ALLOC_GROW(item, nr + 1, alloc);
-item[nr++] = value you like;
-------------
-
-You are responsible for updating the `nr` variable.
-
-If you need to specify the number of elements to allocate explicitly
-then use the macro `REALLOC_ARRAY(item, alloc)` instead of `ALLOC_GROW`.

-argv-array API
-==============
-
-The argv-array API allows one to dynamically build and store
-NULL-terminated lists. An argv-array maintains the invariant that the
-`argv` member always points to a non-NULL array, and that the array is
-always NULL-terminated at the element pointed to by `argv[argc]`. This
-makes the result suitable for passing to functions expecting to receive
-argv from main(), or the link:api-run-command.html[run-command API].
-
-The string-list API (documented in string-list.h) is similar, but cannot be
-used for these purposes; instead of storing a straight string pointer,
-it contains an item structure with a `util` field that is not compatible
-with the traditional argv interface.
-
-Each `argv_array` manages its own memory. Any strings pushed into the
-array are duplicated, and all memory is freed by argv_array_clear().
-
-Data Structures
----------------
-
-`struct argv_array`::
-
- A single array. This should be initialized by assignment from
- `ARGV_ARRAY_INIT`, or by calling `argv_array_init`. The `argv`
- member contains the actual array; the `argc` member contains the
- number of elements in the array, not including the terminating
- NULL.
-
-Functions
----------
-
-`argv_array_init`::
- Initialize an array. This is no different than assigning from
- `ARGV_ARRAY_INIT`.
-
-`argv_array_push`::
- Push a copy of a string onto the end of the array.
-
-`argv_array_pushl`::
- Push a list of strings onto the end of the array. The arguments
- should be a list of `const char *` strings, terminated by a NULL
- argument.
-
-`argv_array_pushf`::
- Format a string and push it onto the end of the array. This is a
- convenience wrapper combining `strbuf_addf` and `argv_array_push`.
-
-`argv_array_pushv`::
- Push a null-terminated array of strings onto the end of the array.
-
-`argv_array_pop`::
- Remove the final element from the array. If there are no
- elements in the array, do nothing.
-
-`argv_array_clear`::
- Free all memory associated with the array and return it to the
- initial, empty state.
-
-`argv_array_detach`::
- Disconnect the `argv` member from the `argv_array` struct and
- return it. The caller is responsible for freeing the memory used
- by the array, and by the strings it references. After detaching,
- the `argv_array` is in a reinitialized state and can be pushed
- into again.

-config API
-==========
-
-The config API gives callers a way to access Git configuration files
-(and files which have the same syntax). See linkgit:git-config[1] for a
-discussion of the config file syntax.
-
-General Usage
--------------
-
-Config files are parsed linearly, and each variable found is passed to a
-caller-provided callback function. The callback function is responsible
-for any actions to be taken on the config option, and is free to ignore
-some options. It is not uncommon for the configuration to be parsed
-several times during the run of a Git program, with different callbacks
-picking out different variables useful to themselves.
-
-A config callback function takes three parameters:
-
-- the name of the parsed variable. This is in canonical "flat" form: the
- section, subsection, and variable segments will be separated by dots,
- and the section and variable segments will be all lowercase. E.g.,
- `core.ignorecase`, `diff.SomeType.textconv`.
-
-- the value of the found variable, as a string. If the variable had no
- value specified, the value will be NULL (typically this means it
- should be interpreted as boolean true).
-
-- a void pointer passed in by the caller of the config API; this can
- contain callback-specific data
-
-A config callback should return 0 for success, or -1 if the variable
-could not be parsed properly.
-
-Basic Config Querying
----------------------
-
-Most programs will simply want to look up variables in all config files
-that Git knows about, using the normal precedence rules. To do this,
-call `git_config` with a callback function and void data pointer.
-
-`git_config` will read all config sources in order of increasing
-priority. Thus a callback should typically overwrite previously-seen
-entries with new ones (e.g., if both the user-wide `~/.gitconfig` and
-repo-specific `.git/config` contain `color.ui`, the config machinery
-will first feed the user-wide one to the callback, and then the
-repo-specific one; by overwriting, the higher-priority repo-specific
-value is left at the end).
-
-The `config_with_options` function lets the caller examine config
-while adjusting some of the default behavior of `git_config`. It should
-almost never be used by "regular" Git code that is looking up
-configuration variables. It is intended for advanced callers like
-`git-config`, which are intentionally tweaking the normal config-lookup
-process. It takes two extra parameters:
-
-`config_source`::
-If this parameter is non-NULL, it specifies the source to parse for
-configuration, rather than looking in the usual files. See `struct
-git_config_source` in `config.h` for details. Regular `git_config` defaults
-to `NULL`.
-
-`opts`::
-Specify options to adjust the behavior of parsing config files. See `struct
-config_options` in `config.h` for details. As an example: regular `git_config`
-sets `opts.respect_includes` to `1` by default.
-
-Reading Specific Files
-----------------------
-
-To read a specific file in git-config format, use
-`git_config_from_file`. This takes the same callback and data parameters
-as `git_config`.
-
-Querying For Specific Variables
--------------------------------
-
-For programs wanting to query for specific variables in a non-callback
-manner, the config API provides two functions `git_config_get_value`
-and `git_config_get_value_multi`. They both read values from an internal
-cache generated previously from reading the config files.
-
-`int git_config_get_value(const char *key, const char **value)`::
-
- Finds the highest-priority value for the configuration variable `key`,
- stores the pointer to it in `value` and returns 0. When the
- configuration variable `key` is not found, returns 1 without touching
- `value`. The caller should not free or modify `value`, as it is owned
- by the cache.
-
-`const struct string_list *git_config_get_value_multi(const char *key)`::
-
- Finds and returns the value list, sorted in order of increasing priority
- for the configuration variable `key`. When the configuration variable
- `key` is not found, returns NULL. The caller should not free or modify
- the returned pointer, as it is owned by the cache.
-
-`void git_config_clear(void)`::
-
- Resets and invalidates the config cache.
-
-The config API also provides type specific API functions which do conversion
-as well as retrieval for the queried variable, including:
-
-`int git_config_get_int(const char *key, int *dest)`::
-
- Finds and parses the value to an integer for the configuration variable
- `key`. Dies on error; otherwise, stores the value of the parsed integer in
- `dest` and returns 0. When the configuration variable `key` is not found,
- returns 1 without touching `dest`.
-
-`int git_config_get_ulong(const char *key, unsigned long *dest)`::
-
- Similar to `git_config_get_int` but for unsigned longs.
-
-`int git_config_get_bool(const char *key, int *dest)`::
-
- Finds and parses the value into a boolean value, for the configuration
- variable `key` respecting keywords like "true" and "false". Integer
- values are converted into true/false values (when they are non-zero or
- zero, respectively). Other values cause a die(). If parsing is successful,
- stores the value of the parsed result in `dest` and returns 0. When the
- configuration variable `key` is not found, returns 1 without touching
- `dest`.
-
-`int git_config_get_bool_or_int(const char *key, int *is_bool, int *dest)`::
-
- Similar to `git_config_get_bool`, except that integers are copied as-is,
- and `is_bool` flag is unset.
-
-`int git_config_get_maybe_bool(const char *key, int *dest)`::
-
- Similar to `git_config_get_bool`, except that it returns -1 on error
- rather than dying.
-
-`int git_config_get_string_const(const char *key, const char **dest)`::
-
- Allocates and copies the retrieved string into the `dest` parameter for
- the configuration variable `key`; if NULL string is given, prints an
- error message and returns -1. When the configuration variable `key` is
- not found, returns 1 without touching `dest`.
-
-`int git_config_get_string(const char *key, char **dest)`::
-
- Similar to `git_config_get_string_const`, except that retrieved value
- copied into the `dest` parameter is a mutable string.
-
-`int git_config_get_pathname(const char *key, const char **dest)`::
-
- Similar to `git_config_get_string`, but expands `~` or `~user` into
- the user's home directory when found at the beginning of the path.
-
-`git_die_config(const char *key, const char *err, ...)`::
-
- First prints the error message specified by the caller in `err` and then
- dies printing the line number and the file name of the highest priority
- value for the configuration variable `key`.
-
-`void git_die_config_linenr(const char *key, const char *filename, int linenr)`::
-
- Helper function which formats the die error message according to the
- parameters entered. Used by `git_die_config()`. It can be used by callers
- handling `git_config_get_value_multi()` to print the correct error message
- for the desired value.
-
-See test-config.c for usage examples.
-
-Value Parsing Helpers
----------------------
-
-To aid in parsing string values, the config API provides callbacks with
-a number of helper functions, including:
-
-`git_config_int`::
-Parse the string to an integer, including unit factors. Dies on error;
-otherwise, returns the parsed result.
-
-`git_config_ulong`::
-Identical to `git_config_int`, but for unsigned longs.
-
-`git_config_bool`::
-Parse a string into a boolean value, respecting keywords like "true" and
-"false". Integer values are converted into true/false values (when they
-are non-zero or zero, respectively). Other values cause a die(). If
-parsing is successful, the return value is the result.
-
-`git_config_bool_or_int`::
-Same as `git_config_bool`, except that integers are returned as-is, and
-an `is_bool` flag is unset.
-
-`git_parse_maybe_bool`::
-Same as `git_config_bool`, except that it returns -1 on error rather
-than dying.
-
-`git_config_string`::
-Allocates and copies the value string into the `dest` parameter; if no
-string is given, prints an error message and returns -1.
-
-`git_config_pathname`::
-Similar to `git_config_string`, but expands `~` or `~user` into the
-user's home directory when found at the beginning of the path.
-
-Include Directives
-------------------
-
-By default, the config parser does not respect include directives.
-However, a caller can use the special `git_config_include` wrapper
-callback to support them. To do so, you simply wrap your "real" callback
-function and data pointer in a `struct config_include_data`, and pass
-the wrapper to the regular config-reading functions. For example:
-
--------------------------------------------
-int read_file_with_include(const char *file, config_fn_t fn, void *data)
-{
- struct config_include_data inc = CONFIG_INCLUDE_INIT;
- inc.fn = fn;
- inc.data = data;
- return git_config_from_file(git_config_include, file, &inc);
-}
--------------------------------------------
-
-`git_config` respects includes automatically. The lower-level
-`git_config_from_file` does not.
-
-Custom Configsets
------------------
-
-A `config_set` can be used to construct an in-memory cache for
-config-like files that the caller specifies (i.e., files like `.gitmodules`,
-`~/.gitconfig` etc.). For example,
-
-----------------------------------------
-struct config_set gm_config;
-git_configset_init(&gm_config);
-int b;
-/* we add config files to the config_set */
-git_configset_add_file(&gm_config, ".gitmodules");
-git_configset_add_file(&gm_config, ".gitmodules_alt");
-
-if (!git_configset_get_bool(gm_config, "submodule.frotz.ignore", &b)) {
- /* hack hack hack */
-}
-
-/* when we are done with the configset */
-git_configset_clear(&gm_config);
-----------------------------------------
-
-Configset API provides functions for the above mentioned work flow, including:
-
-`void git_configset_init(struct config_set *cs)`::
-
- Initializes the config_set `cs`.
-
-`int git_configset_add_file(struct config_set *cs, const char *filename)`::
-
- Parses the file and adds the variable-value pairs to the `config_set`,
- dies if there is an error in parsing the file. Returns 0 on success, or
- -1 if the file does not exist or is inaccessible. The user has to decide
- if he wants to free the incomplete configset or continue using it when
- the function returns -1.
-
-`int git_configset_get_value(struct config_set *cs, const char *key, const char **value)`::
-
- Finds the highest-priority value for the configuration variable `key`
- and config set `cs`, stores the pointer to it in `value` and returns 0.
- When the configuration variable `key` is not found, returns 1 without
- touching `value`. The caller should not free or modify `value`, as it
- is owned by the cache.
-
-`const struct string_list *git_configset_get_value_multi(struct config_set *cs, const char *key)`::
-
- Finds and returns the value list, sorted in order of increasing priority
- for the configuration variable `key` and config set `cs`. When the
- configuration variable `key` is not found, returns NULL. The caller
- should not free or modify the returned pointer, as it is owned by the cache.
-
-`void git_configset_clear(struct config_set *cs)`::
-
- Clears `config_set` structure, removes all saved variable-value pairs.
-
-In addition to above functions, the `config_set` API provides type specific
-functions in the vein of `git_config_get_int` and family but with an extra
-parameter, pointer to struct `config_set`.
-They all behave similarly to the `git_config_get*()` family described in
-"Querying For Specific Variables" above.
-
-Writing Config Files
---------------------
-
-Git gives multiple entry points in the Config API to write config values to
-files namely `git_config_set_in_file` and `git_config_set`, which write to
-a specific config file or to `.git/config` respectively. They both take a
-key/value pair as parameter.
-In the end they both call `git_config_set_multivar_in_file` which takes four
-parameters:
-
-- the name of the file, as a string, to which key/value pairs will be written.
-
-- the name of key, as a string. This is in canonical "flat" form: the section,
- subsection, and variable segments will be separated by dots, and the section
- and variable segments will be all lowercase.
- E.g., `core.ignorecase`, `diff.SomeType.textconv`.
-
-- the value of the variable, as a string. If value is equal to NULL, it will
- remove the matching key from the config file.
-
-- the value regex, as a string. It will disregard key/value pairs where value
- does not match.
-
-- a multi_replace value, as an int. If value is equal to zero, nothing or only
- one matching key/value is replaced, else all matching key/values (regardless
- how many) are removed, before the new pair is written.
-
-It returns 0 on success.
-
-Also, there are functions `git_config_rename_section` and
-`git_config_rename_section_in_file` with parameters `old_name` and `new_name`
-for renaming or removing sections in the config files. If NULL is passed
-through `new_name` parameter, the section will be removed from the config file.

-credentials API
-===============
-
-The credentials API provides an abstracted way of gathering username and
-password credentials from the user (even though credentials in the wider
-world can take many forms, in this document the word "credential" always
-refers to a username and password pair).
-
-This document describes two interfaces: the C API that the credential
-subsystem provides to the rest of Git, and the protocol that Git uses to
-communicate with system-specific "credential helpers". If you are
-writing Git code that wants to look up or prompt for credentials, see
-the section "C API" below. If you want to write your own helper, see
-the section on "Credential Helpers" below.
-
-Typical setup
--------------
-
-------------
-+-----------------------+
-| Git code (C) |--- to server requiring --->
-| | authentication
-|.......................|
-| C credential API |--- prompt ---> User
-+-----------------------+
- ^ |
- | pipe |
- | v
-+-----------------------+
-| Git credential helper |
-+-----------------------+
-------------
-
-The Git code (typically a remote-helper) will call the C API to obtain
-credential data like a login/password pair (credential_fill). The
-API will itself call a remote helper (e.g. "git credential-cache" or
-"git credential-store") that may retrieve credential data from a
-store. If the credential helper cannot find the information, the C API
-will prompt the user. Then, the caller of the API takes care of
-contacting the server, and does the actual authentication.
-
-C API
------
-
-The credential C API is meant to be called by Git code which needs to
-acquire or store a credential. It is centered around an object
-representing a single credential and provides three basic operations:
-fill (acquire credentials by calling helpers and/or prompting the user),
-approve (mark a credential as successfully used so that it can be stored
-for later use), and reject (mark a credential as unsuccessful so that it
-can be erased from any persistent storage).
-
-Data Structures
-~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-
-`struct credential`::
-
- This struct represents a single username/password combination
- along with any associated context. All string fields should be
- heap-allocated (or NULL if they are not known or not applicable).
- The meaning of the individual context fields is the same as
- their counterparts in the helper protocol; see the section below
- for a description of each field.
-+
-The `helpers` member of the struct is a `string_list` of helpers. Each
-string specifies an external helper which will be run, in order, to
-either acquire or store credentials. See the section on credential
-helpers below. This list is filled-in by the API functions
-according to the corresponding configuration variables before
-consulting helpers, so there usually is no need for a caller to
-modify the helpers field at all.
-+
-This struct should always be initialized with `CREDENTIAL_INIT` or
-`credential_init`.
-
-
-Functions
-~~~~~~~~~
-
-`credential_init`::
-
- Initialize a credential structure, setting all fields to empty.
-
-`credential_clear`::
-
- Free any resources associated with the credential structure,
- returning it to a pristine initialized state.
-
-`credential_fill`::
-
- Instruct the credential subsystem to fill the username and
- password fields of the passed credential struct by first
- consulting helpers, then asking the user. After this function
- returns, the username and password fields of the credential are
- guaranteed to be non-NULL. If an error occurs, the function will
- die().
-
-`credential_reject`::
-
- Inform the credential subsystem that the provided credentials
- have been rejected. This will cause the credential subsystem to
- notify any helpers of the rejection (which allows them, for
- example, to purge the invalid credentials from storage). It
- will also free() the username and password fields of the
- credential and set them to NULL (readying the credential for
- another call to `credential_fill`). Any errors from helpers are
- ignored.
-
-`credential_approve`::
-
- Inform the credential subsystem that the provided credentials
- were successfully used for authentication. This will cause the
- credential subsystem to notify any helpers of the approval, so
- that they may store the result to be used again. Any errors
- from helpers are ignored.
-
-`credential_from_url`::
-
- Parse a URL into broken-down credential fields.
-
-Example
-~~~~~~~
-
-The example below shows how the functions of the credential API could be
-used to login to a fictitious "foo" service on a remote host:
-
------------------------------------------------------------------------
-int foo_login(struct foo_connection *f)
-{
- int status;
- /*
- * Create a credential with some context; we don't yet know the
- * username or password.
- */
-
- struct credential c = CREDENTIAL_INIT;
- c.protocol = xstrdup("foo");
- c.host = xstrdup(f->hostname);
-
- /*
- * Fill in the username and password fields by contacting
- * helpers and/or asking the user. The function will die if it
- * fails.
- */
- credential_fill(&c);
-
- /*
- * Otherwise, we have a username and password. Try to use it.
- */
- status = send_foo_login(f, c.username, c.password);
- switch (status) {
- case FOO_OK:
- /* It worked. Store the credential for later use. */
- credential_accept(&c);
- break;
- case FOO_BAD_LOGIN:
- /* Erase the credential from storage so we don't try it
- * again. */
- credential_reject(&c);
- break;
- default:
- /*
- * Some other error occurred. We don't know if the
- * credential is good or bad, so report nothing to the
- * credential subsystem.
- */
- }
-
- /* Free any associated resources. */
- credential_clear(&c);
-
- return status;
-}
------------------------------------------------------------------------
-
-
-Credential Helpers
-------------------
-
-Credential helpers are programs executed by Git to fetch or save
-credentials from and to long-term storage (where "long-term" is simply
-longer than a single Git process; e.g., credentials may be stored
-in-memory for a few minutes, or indefinitely on disk).
-
-Each helper is specified by a single string in the configuration
-variable `credential.helper` (and others, see linkgit:git-config[1]).
-The string is transformed by Git into a command to be executed using
-these rules:
-
- 1. If the helper string begins with "!", it is considered a shell
- snippet, and everything after the "!" becomes the command.
-
- 2. Otherwise, if the helper string begins with an absolute path, the
- verbatim helper string becomes the command.
-
- 3. Otherwise, the string "git credential-" is prepended to the helper
- string, and the result becomes the command.
-
-The resulting command then has an "operation" argument appended to it
-(see below for details), and the result is executed by the shell.
-
-Here are some example specifications:
-
-----------------------------------------------------
-# run "git credential-foo"
-foo
-
-# same as above, but pass an argument to the helper
-foo --bar=baz
-
-# the arguments are parsed by the shell, so use shell
-# quoting if necessary
-foo --bar="whitespace arg"
-
-# you can also use an absolute path, which will not use the git wrapper
-/path/to/my/helper --with-arguments
-
-# or you can specify your own shell snippet
-!f() { echo "password=`cat $HOME/.secret`"; }; f
-----------------------------------------------------
-
-Generally speaking, rule (3) above is the simplest for users to specify.
-Authors of credential helpers should make an effort to assist their
-users by naming their program "git-credential-$NAME", and putting it in
-the $PATH or $GIT_EXEC_PATH during installation, which will allow a user
-to enable it with `git config credential.helper $NAME`.
-
-When a helper is executed, it will have one "operation" argument
-appended to its command line, which is one of:
-
-`get`::
-
- Return a matching credential, if any exists.
-
-`store`::
-
- Store the credential, if applicable to the helper.
-
-`erase`::
-
- Remove a matching credential, if any, from the helper's storage.
-
-The details of the credential will be provided on the helper's stdin
-stream. The exact format is the same as the input/output format of the
-`git credential` plumbing command (see the section `INPUT/OUTPUT
-FORMAT` in linkgit:git-credential[1] for a detailed specification).
-
-For a `get` operation, the helper should produce a list of attributes
-on stdout in the same format. A helper is free to produce a subset, or
-even no values at all if it has nothing useful to provide. Any provided
-attributes will overwrite those already known about by Git. If a helper
-outputs a `quit` attribute with a value of `true` or `1`, no further
-helpers will be consulted, nor will the user be prompted (if no
-credential has been provided, the operation will then fail).
-
-For a `store` or `erase` operation, the helper's output is ignored.
-If it fails to perform the requested operation, it may complain to
-stderr to inform the user. If it does not support the requested
-operation (e.g., a read-only store), it should silently ignore the
-request.
-
-If a helper receives any other operation, it should silently ignore the
-request. This leaves room for future operations to be added (older
-helpers will just ignore the new requests).

-diff API
-========
-
-The diff API is for programs that compare two sets of files (e.g. two
-trees, one tree and the index) and present the found difference in
-various ways. The calling program is responsible for feeding the API
-pairs of files, one from the "old" set and the corresponding one from
-"new" set, that are different. The library called through this API is
-called diffcore, and is responsible for two things.
-
-* finding total rewrites (`-B`), renames (`-M`) and copies (`-C`), and
- changes that touch a string (`-S`), as specified by the caller.
-
-* outputting the differences in various formats, as specified by the
- caller.
-
-Calling sequence
-----------------
-
-* Prepare `struct diff_options` to record the set of diff options, and
- then call `repo_diff_setup()` to initialize this structure. This
- sets up the vanilla default.
-
-* Fill in the options structure to specify desired output format, rename
- detection, etc. `diff_opt_parse()` can be used to parse options given
- from the command line in a way consistent with existing git-diff
- family of programs.
-
-* Call `diff_setup_done()`; this inspects the options set up so far for
- internal consistency and make necessary tweaking to it (e.g. if
- textual patch output was asked, recursive behaviour is turned on);
- the callback set_default in diff_options can be used to tweak this more.
-
-* As you find different pairs of files, call `diff_change()` to feed
- modified files, `diff_addremove()` to feed created or deleted files,
- or `diff_unmerge()` to feed a file whose state is 'unmerged' to the
- API. These are thin wrappers to a lower-level `diff_queue()` function
- that is flexible enough to record any of these kinds of changes.
-
-* Once you finish feeding the pairs of files, call `diffcore_std()`.
- This will tell the diffcore library to go ahead and do its work.
-
-* Calling `diff_flush()` will produce the output.
-
-
-Data structures
----------------
-
-* `struct diff_filespec`
-
-This is the internal representation for a single file (blob). It
-records the blob object name (if known -- for a work tree file it
-typically is a NUL SHA-1), filemode and pathname. This is what the
-`diff_addremove()`, `diff_change()` and `diff_unmerge()` synthesize and
-feed `diff_queue()` function with.
-
-* `struct diff_filepair`
-
-This records a pair of `struct diff_filespec`; the filespec for a file
-in the "old" set (i.e. preimage) is called `one`, and the filespec for a
-file in the "new" set (i.e. postimage) is called `two`. A change that
-represents file creation has NULL in `one`, and file deletion has NULL
-in `two`.
-
-A `filepair` starts pointing at `one` and `two` that are from the same
-filename, but `diffcore_std()` can break pairs and match component
-filespecs with other filespecs from a different filepair to form new
-filepair. This is called 'rename detection'.
-
-* `struct diff_queue`
-
-This is a collection of filepairs. Notable members are:
-
-`queue`::
-
- An array of pointers to `struct diff_filepair`. This
- dynamically grows as you add filepairs;
-
-`alloc`::
-
- The allocated size of the `queue` array;
-
-`nr`::
-
- The number of elements in the `queue` array.
-
-
-* `struct diff_options`
-
-This describes the set of options the calling program wants to affect
-the operation of diffcore library with.
-
-Notable members are:
-
-`output_format`::
- The output format used when `diff_flush()` is run.
-
-`context`::
- Number of context lines to generate in patch output.
-
-`break_opt`, `detect_rename`, `rename-score`, `rename_limit`::
- Affects the way detection logic for complete rewrites, renames
- and copies.
-
-`abbrev`::
- Number of hexdigits to abbreviate raw format output to.
-
-`pickaxe`::
- A constant string (can and typically does contain newlines to
- look for a block of text, not just a single line) to filter out
- the filepairs that do not change the number of strings contained
- in its preimage and postimage of the diff_queue.
-
-`flags`::
- This is mostly a collection of boolean options that affects the
- operation, but some do not have anything to do with the diffcore
- library.
-
-`touched_flags`::
- Records whether a flag has been changed due to user request
- (rather than just set/unset by default).
-
-`set_default`::
- Callback which allows tweaking the options in diff_setup_done().
-
-BINARY, TEXT;;
- Affects the way how a file that is seemingly binary is treated.
-
-FULL_INDEX;;
- Tells the patch output format not to use abbreviated object
- names on the "index" lines.
-
-FIND_COPIES_HARDER;;
- Tells the diffcore library that the caller is feeding unchanged
- filepairs to allow copies from unmodified files be detected.
-
-COLOR_DIFF;;
- Output should be colored.
-
-COLOR_DIFF_WORDS;;
- Output is a colored word-diff.
-
-NO_INDEX;;
- Tells diff-files that the input is not tracked files but files
- in random locations on the filesystem.
-
-ALLOW_EXTERNAL;;
- Tells output routine that it is Ok to call user specified patch
- output routine. Plumbing disables this to ensure stable output.
-
-QUIET;;
- Do not show any output.
-
-REVERSE_DIFF;;
- Tells the library that the calling program is feeding the
- filepairs reversed; `one` is two, and `two` is one.
-
-EXIT_WITH_STATUS;;
- For communication between the calling program and the options
- parser; tell the calling program to signal the presence of
- difference using program exit code.
-
-HAS_CHANGES;;
- Internal; used for optimization to see if there is any change.
-
-SILENT_ON_REMOVE;;
- Affects if diff-files shows removed files.
-
-RECURSIVE, TREE_IN_RECURSIVE;;
- Tells if tree traversal done by tree-diff should recursively
- descend into a tree object pair that are different in preimage
- and postimage set.

-options to the library and to record the paths discovered. A single
-`struct dir_struct` is used regardless of whether or not the traversal
-recursively descends into subdirectories.
-
-The notable options are:
-
-`exclude_per_dir`::
-
- The name of the file to be read in each directory for excluded
- files (typically `.gitignore`).
-
-`flags`::
-
- A bit-field of options:
-
-`DIR_SHOW_IGNORED`:::
-
- Return just ignored files in `entries[]`, not untracked
- files. This flag is mutually exclusive with
- `DIR_SHOW_IGNORED_TOO`.
-
-`DIR_SHOW_IGNORED_TOO`:::
-
- Similar to `DIR_SHOW_IGNORED`, but return ignored files in
- `ignored[]` in addition to untracked files in
- `entries[]`. This flag is mutually exclusive with
- `DIR_SHOW_IGNORED`.
-
-`DIR_KEEP_UNTRACKED_CONTENTS`:::
-
- Only has meaning if `DIR_SHOW_IGNORED_TOO` is also set; if this is set, the
- untracked contents of untracked directories are also returned in
- `entries[]`.
-
-`DIR_SHOW_IGNORED_TOO_MODE_MATCHING`:::
-
- Only has meaning if `DIR_SHOW_IGNORED_TOO` is also set; if
- this is set, returns ignored files and directories that match
- an exclude pattern. If a directory matches an exclude pattern,
- then the directory is returned and the contained paths are
- not. A directory that does not match an exclude pattern will
- not be returned even if all of its contents are ignored. In
- this case, the contents are returned as individual entries.
-+
-If this is set, files and directories that explicitly match an ignore
-pattern are reported. Implicitly ignored directories (directories that
-do not match an ignore pattern, but whose contents are all ignored)
-are not reported, instead all of the contents are reported.
-
-`DIR_COLLECT_IGNORED`:::
-
- Special mode for git-add. Return ignored files in `ignored[]` and
- untracked files in `entries[]`. Only returns ignored files that match
- pathspec exactly (no wildcards). Does not recurse into ignored
- directories.
-
-`DIR_SHOW_OTHER_DIRECTORIES`:::
-
- Include a directory that is not tracked.
-
-`DIR_HIDE_EMPTY_DIRECTORIES`:::
-
- Do not include a directory that is not tracked and is empty.
-
-`DIR_NO_GITLINKS`:::
-
- If set, recurse into a directory that looks like a Git
- directory. Otherwise it is shown as a directory.
-
-The result of the enumeration is left in these fields:
-
-`entries[]`::
-
- An array of `struct dir_entry`, each element of which describes
- a path.
-
-`nr`::
-
- The number of members in `entries[]` array.
-
-`alloc`::
-
- Internal use; keeps track of allocation of `entries[]` array.
-
-`ignored[]`::
-
- An array of `struct dir_entry`, used for ignored paths with the
- `DIR_SHOW_IGNORED_TOO` and `DIR_COLLECT_IGNORED` flags.
-
-`ignored_nr`::
-
- The number of members in `ignored[]` array.
-
-Calling sequence
-----------------
-
-Note: index may be looked at for .gitignore files that are CE_SKIP_WORKTREE
-marked. If you to exclude files, make sure you have loaded index first.
-
-* Prepare `struct dir_struct dir` and clear it with `memset(&dir, 0,
- sizeof(dir))`.
-
-* To add single exclude pattern, call `add_pattern_list()` and then
- `add_pattern()`.
-
-* To add patterns from a file (e.g. `.git/info/exclude`), call
- `add_patterns_from_file()` , and/or set `dir.exclude_per_dir`. A
- short-hand function `setup_standard_excludes()` can be used to set
- up the standard set of exclude settings.
-
-* Set options described in the Data Structure section above.
-
-* Call `read_directory()`.
-
-* Use `dir.entries[]`.
-
-* Call `clear_directory()` when none of the contained elements are no longer in use.

-gitattributes API
-=================
-
-gitattributes mechanism gives a uniform way to associate various
-attributes to set of paths.
-
-
-Data Structure
---------------
-
-`struct git_attr`::
-
- An attribute is an opaque object that is identified by its name.
- Pass the name to `git_attr()` function to obtain the object of
- this type. The internal representation of this structure is
- of no interest to the calling programs. The name of the
- attribute can be retrieved by calling `git_attr_name()`.
-
-`struct attr_check_item`::
-
- This structure represents one attribute and its value.
-
-`struct attr_check`::
-
- This structure represents a collection of `attr_check_item`.
- It is passed to `git_check_attr()` function, specifying the
- attributes to check, and receives their values.
-
-
-Attribute Values
-----------------
-
-An attribute for a path can be in one of four states: Set, Unset,
-Unspecified or set to a string, and `.value` member of `struct
-attr_check_item` records it. There are three macros to check these:
-
-`ATTR_TRUE()`::
-
- Returns true if the attribute is Set for the path.
-
-`ATTR_FALSE()`::
-
- Returns true if the attribute is Unset for the path.
-
-`ATTR_UNSET()`::
-
- Returns true if the attribute is Unspecified for the path.
-
-If none of the above returns true, `.value` member points at a string
-value of the attribute for the path.
-
-
-Querying Specific Attributes
-----------------------------
-
-* Prepare `struct attr_check` using attr_check_initl()
- function, enumerating the names of attributes whose values you are
- interested in, terminated with a NULL pointer. Alternatively, an
- empty `struct attr_check` can be prepared by calling
- `attr_check_alloc()` function and then attributes you want to
- ask about can be added to it with `attr_check_append()`
- function.
-
-* Call `git_check_attr()` to check the attributes for the path.
-
-* Inspect `attr_check` structure to see how each of the
- attribute in the array is defined for the path.
-
-
-Example
--------
-
-To see how attributes "crlf" and "ident" are set for different paths.
-
-. Prepare a `struct attr_check` with two elements (because
- we are checking two attributes):
-
-------------
-static struct attr_check *check;
-static void setup_check(void)
-{
- if (check)
- return; /* already done */
- check = attr_check_initl("crlf", "ident", NULL);
-}
-------------
-
-. Call `git_check_attr()` with the prepared `struct attr_check`:
-
-------------
- const char *path;
-
- setup_check();
- git_check_attr(path, check);
-------------
-
-. Act on `.value` member of the result, left in `check->items[]`:
-
-------------
- const char *value = check->items[0].value;
-
- if (ATTR_TRUE(value)) {
- The attribute is Set, by listing only the name of the
- attribute in the gitattributes file for the path.
- } else if (ATTR_FALSE(value)) {
- The attribute is Unset, by listing the name of the
- attribute prefixed with a dash - for the path.
- } else if (ATTR_UNSET(value)) {
- The attribute is neither set nor unset for the path.
- } else if (!strcmp(value, "input")) {
- If none of ATTR_TRUE(), ATTR_FALSE(), or ATTR_UNSET() is
- true, the value is a string set in the gitattributes
- file for the path by saying "attr=value".
- } else if (... other check using value as string ...) {
- ...
- }
-------------
-
-To see how attributes in argv[] are set for different paths, only
-the first step in the above would be different.
-
-------------
-static struct attr_check *check;
-static void setup_check(const char **argv)
-{
- check = attr_check_alloc();
- while (*argv) {
- struct git_attr *attr = git_attr(*argv);
- attr_check_append(check, attr);
- argv++;
- }
-}
-------------
-
-
-Querying All Attributes
------------------------
-
-To get the values of all attributes associated with a file:
-
-* Prepare an empty `attr_check` structure by calling
- `attr_check_alloc()`.
-
-* Call `git_all_attrs()`, which populates the `attr_check`
- with the attributes attached to the path.
-
-* Iterate over the `attr_check.items[]` array to examine
- the attribute names and values. The name of the attribute
- described by an `attr_check.items[]` object can be retrieved via
- `git_attr_name(check->items[i].attr)`. (Please note that no items
- will be returned for unset attributes, so `ATTR_UNSET()` will return
- false for all returned `attr_check.items[]` objects.)
-
-* Free the `attr_check` struct by calling `attr_check_free()`.

-history graph API
-=================
-
-The graph API is used to draw a text-based representation of the commit
-history. The API generates the graph in a line-by-line fashion.
-
-Functions
----------
-
-Core functions:
-
-* `graph_init()` creates a new `struct git_graph`
-
-* `graph_update()` moves the graph to a new commit.
-
-* `graph_next_line()` outputs the next line of the graph into a strbuf. It
- does not add a terminating newline.
-
-* `graph_padding_line()` outputs a line of vertical padding in the graph. It
- is similar to `graph_next_line()`, but is guaranteed to never print the line
- containing the current commit. Where `graph_next_line()` would print the
- commit line next, `graph_padding_line()` prints a line that simply extends
- all branch lines downwards one row, leaving their positions unchanged.
-
-* `graph_is_commit_finished()` determines if the graph has output all lines
- necessary for the current commit. If `graph_update()` is called before all
- lines for the current commit have been printed, the next call to
- `graph_next_line()` will output an ellipsis, to indicate that a portion of
- the graph was omitted.
-
-The following utility functions are wrappers around `graph_next_line()` and
-`graph_is_commit_finished()`. They always print the output to stdout.
-They can all be called with a NULL graph argument, in which case no graph
-output will be printed.
-
-* `graph_show_commit()` calls `graph_next_line()` and
- `graph_is_commit_finished()` until one of them return non-zero. This prints
- all graph lines up to, and including, the line containing this commit.
- Output is printed to stdout. The last line printed does not contain a
- terminating newline.
-
-* `graph_show_oneline()` calls `graph_next_line()` and prints the result to
- stdout. The line printed does not contain a terminating newline.
-
-* `graph_show_padding()` calls `graph_padding_line()` and prints the result to
- stdout. The line printed does not contain a terminating newline.
-
-* `graph_show_remainder()` calls `graph_next_line()` until
- `graph_is_commit_finished()` returns non-zero. Output is printed to stdout.
- The last line printed does not contain a terminating newline. Returns 1 if
- output was printed, and 0 if no output was necessary.
-
-* `graph_show_strbuf()` prints the specified strbuf to stdout, prefixing all
- lines but the first with a graph line. The caller is responsible for
- ensuring graph output for the first line has already been printed to stdout.
- (This can be done with `graph_show_commit()` or `graph_show_oneline()`.) If
- a NULL graph is supplied, the strbuf is printed as-is.
-
-* `graph_show_commit_msg()` is similar to `graph_show_strbuf()`, but it also
- prints the remainder of the graph, if more lines are needed after the strbuf
- ends. It is better than directly calling `graph_show_strbuf()` followed by
- `graph_show_remainder()` since it properly handles buffers that do not end in
- a terminating newline. The output printed by `graph_show_commit_msg()` will
- end in a newline if and only if the strbuf ends in a newline.
-
-Data structure
---------------
-`struct git_graph` is an opaque data type used to store the current graph
-state.
-
-Calling sequence
-----------------
-
-* Create a `struct git_graph` by calling `graph_init()`. When using the
- revision walking API, this is done automatically by `setup_revisions()` if
- the '--graph' option is supplied.
-
-* Use the revision walking API to walk through a group of contiguous commits.
- The `get_revision()` function automatically calls `graph_update()` each time
- it is invoked.
-
-* For each commit, call `graph_next_line()` repeatedly, until
- `graph_is_commit_finished()` returns non-zero. Each call to
- `graph_next_line()` will output a single line of the graph. The resulting
- lines will not contain any newlines. `graph_next_line()` returns 1 if the
- resulting line contains the current commit, or 0 if this is merely a line
- needed to adjust the graph before or after the current commit. This return
- value can be used to determine where to print the commit summary information
- alongside the graph output.
-
-Limitations
------------
-
-* `graph_update()` must be called with commits in topological order. It should
- not be called on a commit if it has already been invoked with an ancestor of
- that commit, or the graph output will be incorrect.
-
-* `graph_update()` must be called on a contiguous group of commits. If
- `graph_update()` is called on a particular commit, it should later be called
- on all parents of that commit. Parents must not be skipped, or the graph
- output will appear incorrect.
-+
-`graph_update()` may be used on a pruned set of commits only if the parent list
-has been rewritten so as to include only ancestors from the pruned set.
-
-* The graph API does not currently support reverse commit ordering. In
- order to implement reverse ordering, the graphing API needs an
- (efficient) mechanism to find the children of a commit.
-
-Sample usage
-------------
-
-------------
-struct commit *commit;
-struct git_graph *graph = graph_init(opts);
-
-while ((commit = get_revision(opts)) != NULL) {
- while (!graph_is_commit_finished(graph))
- {
- struct strbuf sb;
- int is_commit_line;
-
- strbuf_init(&sb, 0);
- is_commit_line = graph_next_line(graph, &sb);
- fputs(sb.buf, stdout);
-
- if (is_commit_line)
- log_tree_commit(opts, commit);
- else
- putchar(opts->diffopt.line_termination);
- }
-}
-------------
-
-Sample output
--------------
-
-The following is an example of the output from the graph API. This output does
-not include any commit summary information--callers are responsible for
-outputting that information, if desired.

-
-`virtual_ancestor`::
- Behave as though this were part of a merge between common
- ancestors in a recursive merge.
- If a helper program is specified by the
- `[merge "<driver>"] recursive` configuration, it will
- be used (see linkgit:gitattributes[5]).

- `--ours`/`--theirs`/`--union`). Can be `0`,
- `XDL_MERGE_FAVOR_OURS`, `XDL_MERGE_FAVOR_THEIRS`, or
- `XDL_MERGE_FAVOR_UNION`.
-
-`renormalize`::
- Resmudge and clean the "base", "theirs" and "ours" files
- before merging. Use this when the merge is likely to have
- overlapped with a change in smudge/clean or end-of-line
- normalization rules.
+Check ll-merge.h for details.
Low-level (single file) merge
-----------------------------
-`ll_merge`::
-
- Perform a three-way single-file merge in core. This is
- a thin wrapper around `xdl_merge` that takes the path and
- any merge backend specified in `.gitattributes` or
- `.git/info/attributes` into account. Returns 0 for a
- clean merge.
-
-Calling sequence:

-* Prepare a `struct ll_merge_options` to record options.
- If you have no special requests, skip this and pass `NULL`
- as the `opts` parameter to use the default options.
-
-* Allocate an mmbuffer_t variable for the result.
-
-* Allocate and fill variables with the file's original content
- and two modified versions (using `read_mmfile`, for example).
-
-* Call `ll_merge()`.
-
-* Read the merged content from `result_buf.ptr` and `result_buf.size`.
-
-* Release buffers when finished. A simple
- `free(ancestor.ptr); free(ours.ptr); free(theirs.ptr);
- free(result_buf.ptr);` will do.

-oid-array API
-==============
-
-The oid-array API provides storage and manipulation of sets of object
-identifiers. The emphasis is on storage and processing efficiency,
-making them suitable for large lists. Note that the ordering of items is
-not preserved over some operations.
-
-Data Structures
----------------
-
-`struct oid_array`::
-
- A single array of object IDs. This should be initialized by
- assignment from `OID_ARRAY_INIT`. The `oid` member contains
- the actual data. The `nr` member contains the number of items in
- the set. The `alloc` and `sorted` members are used internally,
- and should not be needed by API callers.
-
-Functions
----------
-
-`oid_array_append`::
- Add an item to the set. The object ID will be placed at the end of
- the array (but note that some operations below may lose this
- ordering).
-
-`oid_array_lookup`::
- Perform a binary search of the array for a specific object ID.
- If found, returns the offset (in number of elements) of the
- object ID. If not found, returns a negative integer. If the array
- is not sorted, this function has the side effect of sorting it.
-
-`oid_array_clear`::
- Free all memory associated with the array and return it to the
- initial, empty state.
-
-`oid_array_for_each`::
- Iterate over each element of the list, executing the callback
- function for each one. Does not sort the list, so any custom
- hash order is retained. If the callback returns a non-zero
- value, the iteration ends immediately and the callback's
- return is propagated; otherwise, 0 is returned.
-
-`oid_array_for_each_unique`::
- Iterate over each unique element of the list in sorted order,
- but otherwise behave like `oid_array_for_each`. If the array
- is not sorted, this function has the side effect of sorting
- it.
-
-`oid_array_filter`::
- Apply the callback function `want` to each entry in the array,
- retaining only the entries for which the function returns true.
- Preserve the order of the entries that are retained.
-
-Examples
---------
-
------------------------------------------
-int print_callback(const struct object_id *oid,
- void *data)
-{
- printf("%s\n", oid_to_hex(oid));
- return 0; /* always continue */

- /*
- * Print the unique set of objects. We could also have

-ref iteration API
-=================
-
-
-Iteration of refs is done by using an iterate function which will call a
-callback function for every ref. The callback function has this
-signature:
-
- int handle_one_ref(const char *refname, const struct object_id *oid,
- int flags, void *cb_data);
-
-There are different kinds of iterate functions which all take a
-callback of this type. The callback is then called for each found ref
-until the callback returns nonzero. The returned value is then also
-returned by the iterate function.
-
-Iteration functions
--------------------
-
-* `head_ref()` just iterates the head ref.
-
-* `for_each_ref()` iterates all refs.
-
-* `for_each_ref_in()` iterates all refs which have a defined prefix and
- strips that prefix from the passed variable refname.
-
-* `for_each_tag_ref()`, `for_each_branch_ref()`, `for_each_remote_ref()`,
- `for_each_replace_ref()` iterate refs from the respective area.
-
-* `for_each_glob_ref()` iterates all refs that match the specified glob
- pattern.
-
-* `for_each_glob_ref_in()` the previous and `for_each_ref_in()` combined.
-
-* Use `refs_` API for accessing submodules. The submodule ref store could
- be obtained with `get_submodule_ref_store()`.
-
-* `for_each_rawref()` can be used to learn about broken ref and symref.
-
-* `for_each_reflog()` iterates each reflog file.
-
-Submodules
-----------
-
-If you want to iterate the refs of a submodule you first need to add the
-submodules object database. You can do this by a code-snippet like
-this:
-
- const char *path = "path/to/submodule"
- if (add_submodule_odb(path))
- die("Error submodule '%s' not populated.", path);
-
-`add_submodule_odb()` will return zero on success. If you
-do not do this you will get an error for each ref that it does not point
-to a valid object.
-
-Note: As a side-effect of this you cannot safely assume that all
-objects you lookup are available in superproject. All submodule objects
-will be available the same way as the superprojects objects.
-
-Example:
---------
-
-----
-static int handle_remote_ref(const char *refname,
- const unsigned char *sha1, int flags, void *cb_data)
-{
- struct strbuf *output = cb_data;
- strbuf_addf(output, "%s\n", refname);
- return 0;
-}
-
-...
-
- struct strbuf output = STRBUF_INIT;

-Remotes configuration API
-=========================
-
-The API in remote.h gives access to the configuration related to
-remotes. It handles all three configuration mechanisms historically
-and currently used by Git, and presents the information in a uniform
-fashion. Note that the code also handles plain URLs without any
-configuration, giving them just the default information.
-
-struct remote
--------------
-
-`name`::
-
- The user's nickname for the remote
-
-`url`::
-
- An array of all of the url_nr URLs configured for the remote
-
-`pushurl`::
-
- An array of all of the pushurl_nr push URLs configured for the remote
-
-`push`::
-
- An array of refspecs configured for pushing, with
- push_refspec being the literal strings, and push_refspec_nr
- being the quantity.
-
-`fetch`::
-
- An array of refspecs configured for fetching, with
- fetch_refspec being the literal strings, and fetch_refspec_nr
- being the quantity.
-
-`fetch_tags`::
-
- The setting for whether to fetch tags (as a separate rule from
- the configured refspecs); -1 means never to fetch tags, 0
- means to auto-follow tags based on the default heuristic, 1
- means to always auto-follow tags, and 2 means to fetch all
- tags.
-
-`receivepack`, `uploadpack`::
-
- The configured helper programs to run on the remote side, for
- Git-native protocols.
-
-`http_proxy`::
-
- The proxy to use for curl (http, https, ftp, etc.) URLs.
-
-`http_proxy_authmethod`::
-
- The method used for authenticating against `http_proxy`.
-
-struct remotes can be found by name with remote_get(), and iterated
-through with for_each_remote(). remote_get(NULL) will return the
-default remote, given the current branch and configuration.
-
-struct refspec
---------------
-
-A struct refspec holds the parsed interpretation of a refspec. If it
-will force updates (starts with a '+'), force is true. If it is a
-pattern (sides end with '*') pattern is true. src and dest are the
-two sides (including '*' characters if present); if there is only one
-side, it is src, and dst is NULL; if sides exist but are empty (i.e.,
-the refspec either starts or ends with ':'), the corresponding side is
-"".
-
-An array of strings can be parsed into an array of struct refspecs
-using parse_fetch_refspec() or parse_push_refspec().
-
-remote_find_tracking(), given a remote and a struct refspec with
-either src or dst filled out, will fill out the other such that the
-result is in the "fetch" specification for the remote (note that this
-evaluates patterns and returns a single result).
-
-struct branch
--------------
-
-Note that this may end up moving to branch.h
-
-struct branch holds the configuration for a branch. It can be looked
-up with branch_get(name) for "refs/heads/{name}", or with
-branch_get(NULL) for HEAD.
-
-It contains:
-
-`name`::
-
- The short name of the branch.
-
-`refname`::
-
- The full path for the branch ref.
-
-`remote_name`::
-
- The name of the remote listed in the configuration.
-
-`merge_name`::
-
- An array of the "merge" lines in the configuration.
-
-`merge`::
-
- An array of the struct refspecs used for the merge lines. That
- is, merge[i]->dst is a local tracking ref which should be
- merged into this branch by default.
-
-`merge_nr`::
-
- The number of merge configurations
-
-branch_has_merge_config() returns true if the given branch has merge
-configuration given.
-
-Other stuff
------------
-
-There is other stuff in remote.h that is related, in general, to the
-process of interacting with remotes.

-revision walking API
-====================
-
-The revision walking API offers functions to build a list of revisions
-and then iterate over that list.
-
-Calling sequence
-----------------
-
-The walking API has a given calling sequence: first you need to
-initialize a rev_info structure, then add revisions to control what kind
-of revision list do you want to get, finally you can iterate over the
-revision list.
-
-Functions
----------
-
-`repo_init_revisions`::
-
- Initialize a rev_info structure with default values. The third
- parameter may be NULL or can be prefix path, and then the `.prefix`
- variable will be set to it. This is typically the first function you
- want to call when you want to deal with a revision list. After calling
- this function, you are free to customize options, like set
- `.ignore_merges` to 0 if you don't want to ignore merges, and so on. See
- `revision.h` for a complete list of available options.
-
-`add_pending_object`::
-
- This function can be used if you want to add commit objects as revision
- information. You can use the `UNINTERESTING` object flag to indicate if
- you want to include or exclude the given commit (and commits reachable
- from the given commit) from the revision list.
-+
-NOTE: If you have the commits as a string list then you probably want to
-use setup_revisions(), instead of parsing each string and using this
-function.
-
-`setup_revisions`::
-
- Parse revision information, filling in the `rev_info` structure, and
- removing the used arguments from the argument list. Returns the number
- of arguments left that weren't recognized, which are also moved to the
- head of the argument list. The last parameter is used in case no
- parameter given by the first two arguments.
-
-`prepare_revision_walk`::
-
- Prepares the rev_info structure for a walk. You should check if it
- returns any error (non-zero return code) and if it does not, you can
- start using get_revision() to do the iteration.
-
-`get_revision`::
-
- Takes a pointer to a `rev_info` structure and iterates over it,
- returning a `struct commit *` each time you call it. The end of the
- revision list is indicated by returning a NULL pointer.
-
-`reset_revision_walk`::
-
- Reset the flags used by the revision walking api. You can use
- this to do multiple sequential revision walks.
-
-Data structures
----------------
-
-Talk about <revision.h>, things like:
-
-* two diff_options, one for path limiting, another for output;
-* remaining functions;

-run-command API
-===============
-
-The run-command API offers a versatile tool to run sub-processes with
-redirected input and output as well as with a modified environment
-and an alternate current directory.
-
-A similar API offers the capability to run a function asynchronously,
-which is primarily used to capture the output that the function
-produces in the caller in order to process it.
-
-
-Functions
----------
-
-`child_process_init`::
-
- Initialize a struct child_process variable.
-
-`start_command`::
-
- Start a sub-process. Takes a pointer to a `struct child_process`
- that specifies the details and returns pipe FDs (if requested).
- See below for details.
-
-`finish_command`::
-
- Wait for the completion of a sub-process that was started with
- start_command().
-
-`run_command`::
-
- A convenience function that encapsulates a sequence of
- start_command() followed by finish_command(). Takes a pointer
- to a `struct child_process` that specifies the details.
-
-`run_command_v_opt`, `run_command_v_opt_cd_env`::
-
- Convenience functions that encapsulate a sequence of
- start_command() followed by finish_command(). The argument argv
- specifies the program and its arguments. The argument opt is zero
- or more of the flags `RUN_COMMAND_NO_STDIN`, `RUN_GIT_CMD`,
- `RUN_COMMAND_STDOUT_TO_STDERR`, or `RUN_SILENT_EXEC_FAILURE`
- that correspond to the members .no_stdin, .git_cmd,
- .stdout_to_stderr, .silent_exec_failure of `struct child_process`.
- The argument dir corresponds the member .dir. The argument env
- corresponds to the member .env.
-
-`child_process_clear`::
-
- Release the memory associated with the struct child_process.
- Most users of the run-command API don't need to call this
- function explicitly because `start_command` invokes it on
- failure and `finish_command` calls it automatically already.
-
-The functions above do the following:
-
-. If a system call failed, errno is set and -1 is returned. A diagnostic
- is printed.
-
-. If the program was not found, then -1 is returned and errno is set to
- ENOENT; a diagnostic is printed only if .silent_exec_failure is 0.
-
-. Otherwise, the program is run. If it terminates regularly, its exit
- code is returned. No diagnostic is printed, even if the exit code is
- non-zero.
-
-. If the program terminated due to a signal, then the return value is the
- signal number + 128, ie. the same value that a POSIX shell's $? would
- report. A diagnostic is printed.
-
-
-`start_async`::
-
- Run a function asynchronously. Takes a pointer to a `struct
- async` that specifies the details and returns a set of pipe FDs
- for communication with the function. See below for details.
-
-`finish_async`::
-
- Wait for the completion of an asynchronous function that was
- started with start_async().
-
-`run_hook`::
-
- Run a hook.
- The first argument is a pathname to an index file, or NULL
- if the hook uses the default index file or no index is needed.
- The second argument is the name of the hook.
- The further arguments correspond to the hook arguments.
- The last argument has to be NULL to terminate the arguments list.
- If the hook does not exist or is not executable, the return
- value will be zero.
- If it is executable, the hook will be executed and the exit
- status of the hook is returned.
- On execution, .stdout_to_stderr and .no_stdin will be set.
- (See below.)
-
-
-Data structures
----------------
-
-* `struct child_process`
-
-This describes the arguments, redirections, and environment of a
-command to run in a sub-process.
-
-The caller:
-
-1. allocates and clears (using child_process_init() or
- CHILD_PROCESS_INIT) a struct child_process variable;
-2. initializes the members;
-3. calls start_command();
-4. processes the data;
-5. closes file descriptors (if necessary; see below);
-6. calls finish_command().
-
-The .argv member is set up as an array of string pointers (NULL
-terminated), of which .argv[0] is the program name to run (usually
-without a path). If the command to run is a git command, set argv[0] to
-the command name without the 'git-' prefix and set .git_cmd = 1.
-
-Note that the ownership of the memory pointed to by .argv stays with the
-caller, but it should survive until `finish_command` completes. If the
-.argv member is NULL, `start_command` will point it at the .args
-`argv_array` (so you may use one or the other, but you must use exactly
-one). The memory in .args will be cleaned up automatically during
-`finish_command` (or during `start_command` when it is unsuccessful).
-
-The members .in, .out, .err are used to redirect stdin, stdout,
-stderr as follows:
-
-. Specify 0 to request no special redirection. No new file descriptor
- is allocated. The child process simply inherits the channel from the
- parent.
-
-. Specify -1 to have a pipe allocated; start_command() replaces -1
- by the pipe FD in the following way:
-
- .in: Returns the writable pipe end into which the caller writes;
- the readable end of the pipe becomes the child's stdin.
-
- .out, .err: Returns the readable pipe end from which the caller
- reads; the writable end of the pipe end becomes child's
- stdout/stderr.
-
- The caller of start_command() must close the so returned FDs
- after it has completed reading from/writing to it!
-
-. Specify a file descriptor > 0 to be used by the child:
-
- .in: The FD must be readable; it becomes child's stdin.
- .out: The FD must be writable; it becomes child's stdout.
- .err: The FD must be writable; it becomes child's stderr.
-
- The specified FD is closed by start_command(), even if it fails to
- run the sub-process!
-
-. Special forms of redirection are available by setting these members
- to 1:
-
- .no_stdin, .no_stdout, .no_stderr: The respective channel is
- redirected to /dev/null.
-
- .stdout_to_stderr: stdout of the child is redirected to its
- stderr. This happens after stderr is itself redirected.
- So stdout will follow stderr to wherever it is
- redirected.
-
-To modify the environment of the sub-process, specify an array of
-string pointers (NULL terminated) in .env:
-
-. If the string is of the form "VAR=value", i.e. it contains '='
- the variable is added to the child process's environment.
-
-. If the string does not contain '=', it names an environment
- variable that will be removed from the child process's environment.
-
-If the .env member is NULL, `start_command` will point it at the
-.env_array `argv_array` (so you may use one or the other, but not both).
-The memory in .env_array will be cleaned up automatically during
-`finish_command` (or during `start_command` when it is unsuccessful).
-
-To specify a new initial working directory for the sub-process,
-specify it in the .dir member.
-
-If the program cannot be found, the functions return -1 and set
-errno to ENOENT. Normally, an error message is printed, but if
-.silent_exec_failure is set to 1, no message is printed for this
-special error condition.
-
-
-* `struct async`
-
-This describes a function to run asynchronously, whose purpose is
-to produce output that the caller reads.
-
-The caller:
-
-1. allocates and clears (memset(&asy, 0, sizeof(asy));) a
- struct async variable;
-2. initializes .proc and .data;
-3. calls start_async();
-4. processes communicates with proc through .in and .out;
-5. closes .in and .out;
-6. calls finish_async().
-
-The members .in, .out are used to provide a set of fd's for
-communication between the caller and the callee as follows:
-
-. Specify 0 to have no file descriptor passed. The callee will
- receive -1 in the corresponding argument.
-
-. Specify < 0 to have a pipe allocated; start_async() replaces
- with the pipe FD in the following way:
-
- .in: Returns the writable pipe end into which the caller
- writes; the readable end of the pipe becomes the function's
- in argument.
-
- .out: Returns the readable pipe end from which the caller
- reads; the writable end of the pipe becomes the function's
- out argument.
-
- The caller of start_async() must close the returned FDs after it
- has completed reading from/writing from them.
-
-. Specify a file descriptor > 0 to be used by the function:
-
- .in: The FD must be readable; it becomes the function's in.
- .out: The FD must be writable; it becomes the function's out.
-
- The specified FD is closed by start_async(), even if it fails to
- run the function.
-
-The function pointer in .proc has the following signature:
-
- int proc(int in, int out, void *data);
-
-. in, out specifies a set of file descriptors to which the function
- must read/write the data that it needs/produces. The function
- *must* close these descriptors before it returns. A descriptor
- may be -1 if the caller did not configure a descriptor for that
- direction.
-
-. data is the value that the caller has specified in the .data member
- of struct async.
-
-. The return value of the function is 0 on success and non-zero
- on failure. If the function indicates failure, finish_async() will
- report failure as well.
-
-
-There are serious restrictions on what the asynchronous function can do
-because this facility is implemented by a thread in the same address
-space on most platforms (when pthreads is available), but by a pipe to
-a forked process otherwise:
-
-. It cannot change the program's state (global variables, environment,
- etc.) in a way that the caller notices; in other words, .in and .out
- are the only communication channels to the caller.
-
-. It must not change the program's state that the caller of the
- facility also uses.

-Pathspec
---------
-
-See glossary-context.txt for the syntax of pathspec. In memory, a
-pathspec set is represented by "struct pathspec" and is prepared by
-parse_pathspec(). This function takes several arguments:
-
-- magic_mask specifies what features that are NOT supported by the
- following code. If a user attempts to use such a feature,
- parse_pathspec() can reject it early.
-
-- flags specifies other things that the caller wants parse_pathspec to
- perform.
-
-- prefix and args come from cmd_* functions
-
-parse_pathspec() helps catch unsupported features and reject them
-politely. At a lower level, different pathspec-related functions may
-not support the same set of features. Such pathspec-sensitive
-functions are guarded with GUARD_PATHSPEC(), which will die in an
-unfriendly way when an unsupported feature is requested.
-
-The command designers are supposed to make sure that GUARD_PATHSPEC()
-never dies. They have to make sure all unsupported features are caught
-by parse_pathspec(), not by GUARD_PATHSPEC. grepping GUARD_PATHSPEC()
-should give the designers all pathspec-sensitive codepaths and what
-features they support.
-
-A similar process is applied when a new pathspec magic is added. The
-designer lifts the GUARD_PATHSPEC restriction in the functions that
-support the new magic. At the same time (s)he has to make sure this
-new feature will be caught at parse_pathspec() in commands that cannot
-handle the new magic in some cases. grepping parse_pathspec() should
-help.

-sigchain API
-============
-
-Code often wants to set a signal handler to clean up temporary files or
-other work-in-progress when we die unexpectedly. For multiple pieces of
-code to do this without conflicting, each piece of code must remember
-the old value of the handler and restore it either when:
-
- 1. The work-in-progress is finished, and the handler is no longer
- necessary. The handler should revert to the original behavior
- (either another handler, SIG_DFL, or SIG_IGN).
-
- 2. The signal is received. We should then do our cleanup, then chain
- to the next handler (or die if it is SIG_DFL).
-
-Sigchain is a tiny library for keeping a stack of handlers. Your handler
-and installation code should look something like:
-
-------------------------------------------
- void clean_foo_on_signal(int sig)
- {
- clean_foo();
- sigchain_pop(sig);
- raise(sig);
- }
-
- void other_func()
- {
- sigchain_push_common(clean_foo_on_signal);
- mess_up_foo();
- clean_foo();
- }
-------------------------------------------
-
-Handlers are given the typedef of sigchain_fun. This is the same type
-that is given to signal() or sigaction(). It is perfectly reasonable to
-push SIG_DFL or SIG_IGN onto the stack.
-
-You can sigchain_push and sigchain_pop individual signals. For
-convenience, sigchain_push_common will push the handler onto the stack
-for many common signals.

-submodule config cache API
-==========================
-
-The submodule config cache API allows to read submodule
-configurations/information from specified revisions. Internally
-information is lazily read into a cache that is used to avoid
-unnecessary parsing of the same .gitmodules files. Lookups can be done by
-submodule path or name.
-
-Usage
------
-
-To initialize the cache with configurations from the worktree the caller
-typically first calls `gitmodules_config()` to read values from the
-worktree .gitmodules and then to overlay the local git config values
-`parse_submodule_config_option()` from the config parsing
-infrastructure.
-
-The caller can look up information about submodules by using the
-`submodule_from_path()` or `submodule_from_name()` functions. They return
-a `struct submodule` which contains the values. The API automatically
-initializes and allocates the needed infrastructure on-demand. If the
-caller does only want to lookup values from revisions the initialization
-can be skipped.
-
-If the internal cache might grow too big or when the caller is done with
-the API, all internally cached values can be freed with submodule_free().
-
-Data Structures
----------------
-
-`struct submodule`::
-
- This structure is used to return the information about one
- submodule for a certain revision. It is returned by the lookup
- functions.
-
-Functions
----------
-
-`void submodule_free(struct repository *r)`::
-
- Use these to free the internally cached values.
-
-`int parse_submodule_config_option(const char *var, const char *value)`::
-
- Can be passed to the config parsing infrastructure to parse
- local (worktree) submodule configurations.
-
-`const struct submodule *submodule_from_path(const unsigned char *treeish_name, const char *path)`::
-
- Given a tree-ish in the superproject and a path, return the
- submodule that is bound at the path in the named tree.
-
-`const struct submodule *submodule_from_name(const unsigned char *treeish_name, const char *name)`::
-
- The same as above but lookup by name.
-
-Whenever a submodule configuration is parsed in `parse_submodule_config_option`
-via e.g. `gitmodules_config()`, it will overwrite the null_sha1 entry.
-So in the normal case, when HEAD:.gitmodules is parsed first and then overlayed
-with the repository configuration, the null_sha1 entry contains the local
-configuration of a submodule (e.g. consolidated values from local git
-configuration and the .gitmodules file in the worktree).
-
-For an example usage see test-submodule-config.c.

-trace API
-=========
-
-The trace API can be used to print debug messages to stderr or a file. Trace
-code is inactive unless explicitly enabled by setting `GIT_TRACE*` environment
-variables.
-
-The trace implementation automatically adds `timestamp file:line ... \n` to
-all trace messages. E.g.:
-
-------------
-23:59:59.123456 git.c:312 trace: built-in: git 'foo'
-00:00:00.000001 builtin/foo.c:99 foo: some message
-------------
-
-Data Structures
----------------
-
-`struct trace_key`::
-
- Defines a trace key (or category). The default (for API functions that
- don't take a key) is `GIT_TRACE`.
-+
-E.g. to define a trace key controlled by environment variable `GIT_TRACE_FOO`:
-+
-------------
-static struct trace_key trace_foo = TRACE_KEY_INIT(FOO);
-
-static void trace_print_foo(const char *message)
-{
- trace_printf_key(&trace_foo, "%s", message);
-}
-------------
-+
-Note: don't use `const` as the trace implementation stores internal state in
-the `trace_key` structure.
-
-Functions
----------
-
-`int trace_want(struct trace_key *key)`::
-
- Checks whether the trace key is enabled. Used to prevent expensive
- string formatting before calling one of the printing APIs.
-
-`void trace_disable(struct trace_key *key)`::
-
- Disables tracing for the specified key, even if the environment
- variable was set.
-
-`void trace_printf(const char *format, ...)`::
-`void trace_printf_key(struct trace_key *key, const char *format, ...)`::
-
- Prints a formatted message, similar to printf.
-
-`void trace_argv_printf(const char **argv, const char *format, ...)``::
-
- Prints a formatted message, followed by a quoted list of arguments.
-
-`void trace_strbuf(struct trace_key *key, const struct strbuf *data)`::
-
- Prints the strbuf, without additional formatting (i.e. doesn't
- choke on `%` or even `\0`).
-
-`uint64_t getnanotime(void)`::
-
- Returns nanoseconds since the epoch (01/01/1970), typically used
- for performance measurements.
-+
-Currently there are high precision timer implementations for Linux (using
-`clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC)`) and Windows (`QueryPerformanceCounter`).
-Other platforms use `gettimeofday` as time source.
-
-`void trace_performance(uint64_t nanos, const char *format, ...)`::
-`void trace_performance_since(uint64_t start, const char *format, ...)`::
-
- Prints the elapsed time (in nanoseconds), or elapsed time since
- `start`, followed by a formatted message. Enabled via environment
- variable `GIT_TRACE_PERFORMANCE`. Used for manual profiling, e.g.:
-+
-------------
-uint64_t start = getnanotime();
-/* code section to measure */
-trace_performance_since(start, "foobar");
-------------
-+
-------------
-uint64_t t = 0;
-for (;;) {
- /* ignore */
- t -= getnanotime();
- /* code section to measure */
- t += getnanotime();
- /* ignore */
-}
-trace_performance(t, "frotz");
-------------
-
-Bugs & Caveats
---------------
-
-GIT_TRACE_* environment variables can be used to tell Git to show
-trace output to its standard error stream. Git can often spawn a pager
-internally to run its subcommand and send its standard output and

-
-Because GIT_TRACE_PERFORMANCE trace is generated only at the very end
-of the program with atexit(), which happens after the pager exits, it
-would not work well if you send its log to the standard error output
-and let Git spawn the pager at the same time.
-
-As a work around, you can for example use '--no-pager', or set
-GIT_TRACE_PERFORMANCE to another file descriptor which is redirected
-to stderr, or set GIT_TRACE_PERFORMANCE to a file specified by its
-absolute path.
-
-For example instead of the following command which by default may not
-print any performance information:
-
-------------
-GIT_TRACE_PERFORMANCE=2 git log -1
-------------
-
-you may want to use:
-

=== Basic Command Messages
These are concerned with the lifetime of the overall git process.
-
-`void trace2_initialize_clock()`::
-
- Initialize the Trace2 start clock and nothing else. This should
- be called at the very top of main() to capture the process start
- time and reduce startup order dependencies.
-
-`void trace2_initialize()`::
-
- Determines if any Trace2 Targets should be enabled and
- initializes the Trace2 facility. This includes setting up the

-`void trace2_cmd_start(int argc, const char **argv)`::
-
- Emits a "start" message containing the process command line
- arguments.
-
-`int trace2_cmd_exit(int exit_code)`::

-
- Emits an "error" message containing a formatted error message.
-
-`void trace2_cmd_path(const char *pathname)`::
-
- Emits a "cmd_path" message with the full pathname of the
- current process.
+e.g: `void trace2_initialize_clock()`, `void trace2_initialize()`,
+`int trace2_is_enabled()`, `void trace2_cmd_start(int argc, const char **argv)`.
=== Command Detail Messages
These are concerned with describing the specific Git command
after the command line, config, and environment are inspected.
-
-`void trace2_cmd_name(const char *name)`::
-
- Emits a "cmd_name" message with the canonical name of the
- command, for example "status" or "checkout".
-
-`void trace2_cmd_mode(const char *mode)`::
-
- Emits a "cmd_mode" message with a qualifier name to further
- describe the current git command.
-+
-This message is intended to be used with git commands having multiple
-major modes. For example, a "checkout" command can checkout a new
-branch or it can checkout a single file, so the checkout code could
-emit a cmd_mode message of "branch" or "file".
-
-`void trace2_cmd_alias(const char *alias, const char **argv_expansion)`::
-
- Emits an "alias" message containing the alias used and the
- argument expansion.
-
-`void trace2_def_param(const char *parameter, const char *value)`::
-
- Emits a "def_param" message containing a key/value pair.
-+
-This message is intended to report some global aspect of the current
-command, such as a configuration setting or command line switch that
-significantly affects program performance or behavior, such as
-`core.abbrev`, `status.showUntrackedFiles`, or `--no-ahead-behind`.
-
-`void trace2_cmd_list_config()`::
-
- Emits a "def_param" messages for "important" configuration
- settings.
-+
-The environment variable `GIT_TRACE2_CONFIG_PARAMS` or the `trace2.configParams`
-config value can be set to a
-list of patterns of important configuration settings, for example:
-`core.*,remote.*.url`. This function will iterate over all config
-settings and emit a "def_param" message for each match.
-
-`void trace2_cmd_set_config(const char *key, const char *value)`::
-
- Emits a "def_param" message for a new or updated key/value
- pair IF `key` is considered important.
-+
-This is used to hook into `git_config_set()` and catch any
-configuration changes and update a value previously reported by
-`trace2_cmd_list_config()`.
-
-`void trace2_def_repo(struct repository *repo)`::
-
- Registers a repository with the Trace2 layer. Assigns a
- unique "repo-id" to `repo->trace2_repo_id`.
-+
-Emits a "worktree" messages containing the repo-id and the worktree
-pathname.
-+
-Region and data messages (described later) may refer to this repo-id.
-+
-The main/top-level repository will have repo-id value 1 (aka "r1").
-+
-The repo-id field is in anticipation of future in-proc submodule
-repositories.
+e.g: `void trace2_cmd_name(const char *name)`,
+`void trace2_cmd_mode(const char *mode)`.
=== Child Process Messages
These are concerned with the various spawned child processes,
including shell scripts, git commands, editors, pagers, and hooks.
-`void trace2_child_start(struct child_process *cmd)`::
-
- Emits a "child_start" message containing the "child-id",
- "child-argv", and "child-classification".
-+
-Before calling this, set `cmd->trace2_child_class` to a name
-describing the type of child process, for example "editor".
-+
-This function assigns a unique "child-id" to `cmd->trace2_child_id`.
-This field is used later during the "child_exit" message to associate
-it with the "child_start" message.
-+
-This function should be called before spawning the child process.
-
-`void trace2_child_exit(struct child_proess *cmd, int child_exit_code)`::
-
- Emits a "child_exit" message containing the "child-id",
- the child's elapsed time and exit-code.
-+
-The reported elapsed time includes the process creation overhead and
-time spend waiting for it to exit, so it may be slightly longer than
-the time reported by the child itself.
-+
-This function should be called after reaping the child process.
-
-`int trace2_exec(const char *exe, const char **argv)`::
-
- Emits a "exec" message containing the "exec-id" and the
- argv of the new process.
-+
-This function should be called before calling one of the `exec()`
-variants, such as `execvp()`.
-+
-This function returns a unique "exec-id". This value is used later
-if the exec() fails and a "exec-result" message is necessary.
-
-`void trace2_exec_result(int exec_id, int error_code)`::
-
- Emits a "exec_result" message containing the "exec-id"
- and the error code.
-+
-On Unix-based systems, `exec()` does not return if successful.
-This message is used to indicate that the `exec()` failed and
-that the current program is continuing.
+e.g: `void trace2_child_start(struct child_process *cmd)`.
=== Git Thread Messages
These messages are concerned with Git thread usage.
-`void trace2_thread_start(const char *thread_name)`::
-
- Emits a "thread_start" message.
-+
-The `thread_name` field should be a descriptive name, such as the
-unique name of the thread-proc. A unique "thread-id" will be added
-to the name to uniquely identify thread instances.
-+
-Region and data messages (described later) may refer to this thread
-name.
-+
-This function must be called by the thread-proc of the new thread
-(so that TLS data is properly initialized) and not by the caller
-of `pthread_create()`.
-
-`void trace2_thread_exit()`::
-
- Emits a "thread_exit" message containing the thread name
- and the thread elapsed time.
-+
-This function must be called by the thread-proc before it returns
-(so that the coorect TLS data is used and cleaned up. It should
-not be called by the caller of `pthread_join()`.
+e.g: `void trace2_thread_start(const char *thread_name)`.
=== Region and Data Messages
These are concerned with recording performance data
-over regions or spans of code.
-
-`void trace2_region_enter(const char *category, const char *label, const struct repository *repo)`::

-`void trace2_region_enter_printf(const char *category, const char *label, const struct repository *repo, const char *fmt, ...)`::
-
-`void trace2_region_enter_printf_va(const char *category, const char *label, const struct repository *repo, const char *fmt, va_list ap)`::
-
- Emits a thread-relative "region_enter" message with optional
- printf string.
-+
-This function pushes a new region nesting stack level on the current
-thread and starts a clock for the new stack frame.
-+
-The `category` field is an arbitrary category name used to classify
-regions by feature area, such as "status" or "index". At this time
-it is only just printed along with the rest of the message. It may
-be used in the future to filter messages.
-+
-The `label` field is an arbitrary label used to describe the activity
-being started, such as "read_recursive" or "do_read_index".
-+
-The `repo` field, if set, will be used to get the "repo-id", so that
-recursive oerations can be attributed to the correct repository.
-
-`void trace2_region_leave(const char *category, const char *label, const struct repository *repo)`::
-
-`void trace2_region_leave_printf(const char *category, const char *label, const struct repository *repo, const char *fmt, ...)`::
-
-`void trace2_region_leave_printf_va(const char *category, const char *label, const struct repository *repo, const char *fmt, va_list ap)`::
-
- Emits a thread-relative "region_leave" message with optional
- printf string.
-+
-This function pops the region nesting stack on the current thread
-and reports the elapsed time of the stack frame.
-+
-The `category`, `label`, and `repo` fields are the same as above.
-The `category` and `label` do not need to match the correpsonding
-"region_enter" message, but it makes the data stream easier to
-understand.
-
-`void trace2_data_string(const char *category, const struct repository *repo, const char *key, const char * value)`::
-
-`void trace2_data_intmax(const char *category, const struct repository *repo, const char *key, intmax value)`::
-
-`void trace2_data_json(const char *category, const struct repository *repo, const char *key, const struct json_writer *jw)`::
-
- Emits a region- and thread-relative "data" or "data_json" message.
-+
-This is a key/value pair message containing information about the
-current thread, region stack, and repository. This could be used
-to print the number of files in a directory during a multi-threaded
-recursive tree walk.
-
-`void trace2_printf(const char *fmt, ...)`::
-
-`void trace2_printf_va(const char *fmt, va_list ap)`::

-tree walking API
-================
-
-The tree walking API is used to traverse and inspect trees.
-
-Data Structures
----------------
-
-`struct name_entry`::
-
- An entry in a tree. Each entry has a sha1 identifier, pathname, and
- mode.
-
-`struct tree_desc`::
-
- A semi-opaque data structure used to maintain the current state of the
- walk.
-+
-* `buffer` is a pointer into the memory representation of the tree. It always
-points at the current entry being visited.
-
-* `size` counts the number of bytes left in the `buffer`.
-
-* `entry` points to the current entry being visited.
-
-`struct traverse_info`::
-
- A structure used to maintain the state of a traversal.
-+
-* `prev` points to the traverse_info which was used to descend into the
-current tree. If this is the top-level tree `prev` will point to
-a dummy traverse_info.
-
-* `name` is the entry for the current tree (if the tree is a subtree).
-
-* `pathlen` is the length of the full path for the current tree.
-
-* `conflicts` can be used by callbacks to maintain directory-file conflicts.
-
-* `fn` is a callback called for each entry in the tree. See Traversing for more
-information.
-
-* `data` can be anything the `fn` callback would want to use.
-
-* `show_all_errors` tells whether to stop at the first error or not.
-
-Initializing
-------------
-
-`init_tree_desc`::
-
- Initialize a `tree_desc` and decode its first entry. The buffer and
- size parameters are assumed to be the same as the buffer and size
- members of `struct tree`.
-
-`fill_tree_descriptor`::
-
- Initialize a `tree_desc` and decode its first entry given the
- object ID of a tree. Returns the `buffer` member if the latter
- is a valid tree identifier and NULL otherwise.
-
-`setup_traverse_info`::
-
- Initialize a `traverse_info` given the pathname of the tree to start
- traversing from.
-
-Walking
--------
-
-`tree_entry`::
-
- Visit the next entry in a tree. Returns 1 when there are more entries
- left to visit and 0 when all entries have been visited. This is
- commonly used in the test of a while loop.
-
-`tree_entry_len`::
-
- Calculate the length of a tree entry's pathname. This utilizes the
- memory structure of a tree entry to avoid the overhead of using a
- generic strlen().
-
-`update_tree_entry`::
-
- Walk to the next entry in a tree. This is commonly used in conjunction
- with `tree_entry_extract` to inspect the current entry.
-
-`tree_entry_extract`::
-
- Decode the entry currently being visited (the one pointed to by
- `tree_desc's` `entry` member) and return the sha1 of the entry. The
- `pathp` and `modep` arguments are set to the entry's pathname and mode
- respectively.
-
-`get_tree_entry`::
-
- Find an entry in a tree given a pathname and the sha1 of a tree to
- search. Returns 0 if the entry is found and -1 otherwise. The third
- and fourth parameters are set to the entry's sha1 and mode
- respectively.
-
-Traversing
-----------
-
-`traverse_trees`::
-
- Traverse `n` number of trees in parallel. The `fn` callback member of
- `traverse_info` is called once for each tree entry.
-
-`traverse_callback_t`::
- The arguments passed to the traverse callback are as follows:
-+
-* `n` counts the number of trees being traversed.
-
-* `mask` has its nth bit set if something exists in the nth entry.
-
-* `dirmask` has its nth bit set if the nth tree's entry is a directory.
-
-* `entry` is an array of size `n` where the nth entry is from the nth tree.
-
-* `info` maintains the state of the traversal.
-
-+
-Returning a negative value will terminate the traversal. Otherwise the
-return value is treated as an update mask. If the nth bit is set the nth tree
-will be updated and if the bit is not set the nth tree entry will be the
-same in the next callback invocation.
-
-`make_traverse_path`::
-
- Generate the full pathname of a tree entry based from the root of the
- traversal. For example, if the traversal has recursed into another
- tree named "bar" the pathname of an entry "baz" in the "bar"
- tree would be "bar/baz".
-
-`traverse_path_len`::
-
- Calculate the length of a pathname returned by `make_traverse_path`.
- This utilizes the memory structure of a tree entry to avoid the
- overhead of using a generic strlen().
-
-`strbuf_make_traverse_path`::
-
- Convenience wrapper to `make_traverse_path` into a strbuf.

+= Git bundle v2 format
+
+The Git bundle format is a format that represents both refs and Git objects.
+
+== Format
+
+We will use ABNF notation to define the Git bundle format. See
+protocol-common.txt for the details.
+
+----
+bundle = signature *prerequisite *reference LF pack
+signature = "# v2 git bundle" LF
+
+prerequisite = "-" obj-id SP comment LF
+comment = *CHAR
+reference = obj-id SP refname LF
+
+pack = ... ; packfile
+----
+
+== Semantics
+
+A Git bundle consists of three parts.
+
+* "Prerequisites" lists the objects that are NOT included in the bundle and the
+ reader of the bundle MUST already have, in order to use the data in the
+ bundle. The objects stored in the bundle may refer to prerequisite objects and
+ anything reachable from them (e.g. a tree object in the bundle can reference
+ a blob that is reachable from a prerequisite) and/or expressed as a delta
+ against prerequisite objects.
+
+* "References" record the tips of the history graph, iow, what the reader of the
+ bundle CAN "git fetch" from it.
+
+* "Pack" is the pack data stream "git fetch" would send, if you fetch from a
+ repository that has the references recorded in the "References" above into a
+ repository that has references pointing at the objects listed in
+ "Prerequisites" above.
+
+In the bundle format, there can be a comment following a prerequisite obj-id.
+This is a comment and it has no specific meaning. The writer of the bundle MAY
+put any string here. The reader of the bundle MUST ignore the comment.
+
+=== Note on the shallow clone and a Git bundle
+
+Note that the prerequisites does not represent a shallow-clone boundary. The
+semantics of the prerequisites and the shallow-clone boundaries are different,
+and the Git bundle v2 format cannot represent a shallow clone repository.
