2006-01-22git-grep: clarification on parameters.Junio C Hamano
We forgot to make sure that there is no more than one pattern parameter. Also when looking for files in a directory called '--others', it passed that path limiter without preceding the end-of-options marker '--' to underlying git-ls-files, which misunderstood it as one of its options instead. $ git grep --others -e Meta/Make Meta $ git grep -o -e Meta/Make Meta $ git grep -o Meta/Make Meta look for a string "Meta/Make" from untracked files in Meta/ directory. $ git grep Meta/Make --others looks for the same string from tracked files in ./--others directory. On the other hand, $ git grep -e Meta/Make --others does not have a freestanding pattern, so everybody is parameter and there is no path specifier. It looks for the string in all the untracked files without any path limiter. [jc: updated with usability enhancements and documentation cleanups from Sean.] Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-01-22Undef DT_* before redefining them.Junio C Hamano
When overriding DT_* macro detection with NO_D_TYPE_IN_DIRENT (recent Cygwin build problem, which hopefully is already fixed in their CVS snapshot version), we define DTYPE() macro to return just "we do not know", but still needed to use DT_* macro to avoid ifdef in the code we use them. If the platform defines DT_* macro but with unusable d_type, this would have resulted in us redefining these preprocessor symbols. Admittedly, that would be just a couple of compilation warnings, and on Cygwin at least this particular problem is transitory (the problem is already fixed in their CVS snapshot version), so this is a low priority fix.

2006-01-22t4011: "sleep 1" is not enough on FATJunio C Hamano
This test depended on "sleep 1" to be enough to dirty the index entry for a symlink. Alex noticed that on his Cygwin installation "sleep 1" was sometimes not enough, and after further discussion with Christopher Faylor, it was brought up that on FAT filesystem timestamp granularity is 2 seconds so sleeping 1 second is not enough. For now this patch takes an easy workaround of sleeping for 3 seconds. Very strictly speaking, POSIX requires lstat to fill only S_IFMT part of st_mode and st_size for symlinks, and depending on timestamp might be considered a bug, but we depend on that anyway, so it is better to test that.

2006-01-22DT_UNKNOWN: do not fully trust existence of DT_UNKNOWNJunio C Hamano
The recent Cygwin defines DT_UNKNOWN although it does not have d_type in struct dirent. Give an option to tell us not to use d_type on such platforms. Hopefully this problem will be transient. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-01-22fsck-objects: support platforms without d_ino in struct dirent.Junio C Hamano
The d_ino field is only used for performance reasons in fsck-objects. On a typical filesystem, i-number tends to have a strong correlation with where the actual bits sit on the disk platter, and we sort the entries to allow us scan things that ought to be close together together. If the platform lacks support for it, it is not a big deal. Just do not use d_ino for sorting, and scan them unsorted. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

This reverts 9e9b26751a5ca7a257b3e1cfb319fe3e4efc663c commit partially.

2006-01-20git-fetch-pack: really do not ask for funny refsJohannes Schindelin

2006-01-20Revert "check_packed_git_idx(): check integrity of the idx file itself."Junio C Hamano
This reverts c5ced64578a82b9d172aceb2f67c6fb9e639f6d9 commit. It turns out that doing this check every time we map the idx file is quite expensive. A corrupt idx file is caught by git-fsck-objects, so this check is not strictly necessary. In one unscientific test, 0.99.9m spent 10 seconds usertime for the same task 1.1.3 takes 37 seconds usertime. Reverting this gives us the performance of 0.99.9 back.
2006-01-16Allow building of RPM from interim snapshot.Junio C Hamano
By popular demand. If you build and install such binary RPMs, the version numbering will lose monotonicity, so you may have to later override downgrade warnings from your packaging manager, but as long as you are aware of that and know how to deal with it, there is no reason for us to forbid it.

2006-01-16cvsimport: ease migration from CVSROOT/users formatJunio C Hamano
This fixes a minor bug, which caused the author email to be doubly enclosed in a <> pair (the code gave enclosing <> to GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL and GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL environment variable). The read_author_info() subroutine is taught to also understand the user list in CVSROOT/users format. This is primarily done to ease migration for CVS users, who can use the -A option to read from existing CVSROOT/users file. write_author_info() always writes in the git-cvsimport's native format ('=' delimited and value without quotes). Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-01-16git-cvsimport: Add -A <author-conv-file> optionAndreas Ericsson
This patch adds the option to specify an author name/email conversion file in the format exon=Andreas Ericsson <> spawn=Simon Pawn <> which will translate the ugly cvs authornames to the more informative git style. The info is saved in $GIT_DIR/cvs-authors, so that subsequent incremental imports will use the same author-info even if no -A option is specified. If an -A option *is* specified, the info in $GIT_DIR/cvs-authors is appended/updated appropriately. Docs updated accordingly. Signed-off-by: Andreas Ericsson <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2006-01-14[PATCH] checkout: show dirty state upon switching branches.Junio C Hamano

2006-01-14git-push: avoid falling back on pushing "matching" refs.Junio C Hamano
The underlying "git send-pack" pushes all the matching refs that both local and remote have, and "git push" blindly inherits this property. Which probably was a mistake. A typical cloned repository (e.g. a subsystem repository cloned from Linus repository) has at least two branches, "master" to keep the subsystem and "origin" that records tip of Linus "master" when the repository was cloned. If this is the public repository for the subsystem, then subsystem developers would clone it, and then cloned ones have "master" and "origin". When developers use this public subsystem repository as a shared repository, pushing into it via "git push subsys:/path/name" would try to push the matching refs, "master" and "origin", from the developers' repositories. The "origin" in the public shared repository does not have much relevance, yet pushing into "origin" would cause "not a fast forward" checks to be triggered. Arguably "git push subsys:/path/name master" would work it around, but having them to say it explicitly to avoid pushing into "origin" as well is bad. This commit requires you to give at least one refspec to git-push. You could "give" by either: (1) Listing the refspec(s) explicitly on the command line. E.g. "git push subsys:/path/name master". (2) Using --all or --tags on the command line. E.g. "git push --tags subsys:/path/name". (3) Using a $GIT_DIR/remotes shorthand with 'Push: refspec' line in it. Unlike pull that can happen pretty much promiscuously, people will push into the same set of a limited number of remote repositories repeatedly over the life of the project, so it is reasonable to assume they would want to keep a $GIT_DIR/remotes/ entry for those repositories even only to save typing the URL, so keeping the default 'Push: refspec' line in such is a sensible thing to do. It was suggested to further fall back on pushing the current branch, but this commit does not implement it. If developers adopt topic branch workflow, pushing to public while on a topic branch by mistake would expose the topic branch to the public repository. Not falling back to the current branch prevents that mistake from happening. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-01-14checkout: merge local modifications while switching branches.Junio C Hamano
* Instead of going interactive, introduce a command line switch '-m' to allow merging changes when normal two-way merge by read-tree prevents branch switching. * Leave the unmerged stages intact if automerge fails, but reset index entries of cleanly merged paths to that of the new branch, so that "git diff" (not "git diff HEAD") would show the local modifications. * Swap the order of trees in read-tree three-way merge used in the fallback, so that `git diff` to show the conflicts become more natural. * Describe the new option and give more examples in the documentation.

2006-01-14checkout: automerge local changes while switching branches.Junio C Hamano

The earlier change to separate $(gitexecdir) from $(bindir) had the installation location of the git wrapper and the rest of the commands the wrong way (right now, both of them point at the same location so there is no real harm). Also gitk needs to be installed in $(bindir). Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-01-14Exec git programs without using PATH.Michal Ostrowski
The git suite may not be in PATH (and thus programs such as git-send-pack could not exec git-rev-list). Thus there is a need for logic that will locate these programs. Modifying PATH is not desirable as it result in behavior differing from the user's intentions, as we may end up prepending "/usr/bin" to PATH. - git C programs will use exec*_git_cmd() APIs to exec sub-commands. - exec*_git_cmd() will execute a git program by searching for it in the following directories: 1. --exec-path (as used by "git") 2. The GIT_EXEC_PATH environment variable. 3. $(gitexecdir) as set in Makefile (default value $(bindir)). - git wrapper will modify PATH as before to enable shell scripts to invoke "git-foo" commands. Ideally, shell scripts should use the git wrapper to become independent of PATH, and then modifying PATH will not be necessary.

We rejected multi-base merge situations even though we used the same underlying multi-base git-read-tree as the resolve strategy uses. This was unneeded and did not add much to ensure the merge to be truly trivial, so remove this restriction and be more similar to what resolve does. Also when the merge did not trivially resolve, we rejected without stating that octopus strategy does not handle the situation. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
