2005-07-12Make "git checkout" verify that the argument refers to a commitLinus Torvalds
We still need to create a new branch if it didn't refer to an existing branch, otherwise our HEAD will continue to point to something totally different than what we just checked out. I'll need to think about it. Maybe only do it with "-f" and force it to the "master" branch?
2005-07-12git-rev-parse: Allow a "zeroth" parent of a commit - the commit itself.Linus Torvalds
This sounds nonsensical, but it's useful to make sure that the result is a commit. For example, "git-rev-parse v2.6.12" will return the _tag_ object for v2.6.12, but "git-rev-parse v2.6.12^0" will return the _commit_ object associated with that tag (and v2.6.12^1 will return the first parent). Also, since the "parent" code will actually parse the commit, this, together with the "--verify" flag, will verify not only that the result is a single SHA1, but will also have verified that it's a proper commit that we can see.
2005-07-12git-send-pack: Fix duplicate refname matchLinus Torvalds
Cut-and-paste dup noticed by Junio. It's not even harmless, since a match also causes that match to be invalidated, so this made it impossible to update an existing branch by name. I'd only tested the case of "ref doesn't exist at all on the other end", which worked fine.
2005-07-11[PATCH] Bootstrap "make dist"Chris Wright
Use git-tar-tree directly from git source during make dist. This handles bootstrap issue with git not being installed. Signed-off-by: Chris Wright <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-07-11[PATCH] git-clone-script local optimization tweaksJunio C Hamano
- When local optimization is used, the variable repo has already been passed through get_repo_base so there is no need to check for .git subdirectory in there. - Use cpio -l instead of "cp -l". Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-07-11[PATCH] git-cvsimport-script: add "import only" optionSven Verdoolaege
git-cvsimport-script: add "import only" option which tells the script not to perform a checkout after importing. This ensures that the working directory and cache remain untouched and will not create them if they do not exist. Acked-by: Matthias Urlichs <> Signed-off-by: Sven Verdoolaege <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-07-11[PATCH] add --missing-ok option to write-treeBryan Larsen
This option allows a write-tree even if the referenced objects are not in the database. Signed-off-by: Bryan Larsen <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-07-11[PATCH] Check packs and then files.Junio C Hamano
This reverses the order of object lookup, to check pack index first and then go to the filesystem to find .git/objects/??/ hierarchy. When most of the objects are packed, this saves quite many stat() calls and negative dcache entries; while the price this approach has to pay is negligible, even when most of the objects are outside pack, because checking pack index file is quite cheap. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-07-11[PATCH] Dereference tag repeatedly until we get a non-tag.Junio C Hamano
When we allow a tag object in place of a commit object, we only dereferenced the given tag once, which causes a tag that points at a tag that points at a commit to be rejected. Instead, dereference tag repeatedly until we get a non-tag. This patch makes change to two functions: - commit.c::lookup_commit_reference() is used by merge-base, rev-tree and rev-parse to convert user supplied SHA1 to that of a commit. - rev-list uses its own get_commit_reference() to do the same. Dereferencing tags this way helps both of these uses. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-07-10[PATCH] alternate object store and fsckv0.99Junio C Hamano
The location alt_odb[j].name[0..] is filled with ??/?{38} to form a sha1 filename to try, but I was too lazy to allocate a copy, so while fsck_object_dir() is running for the directory, the filenames ??/?{38} are filled after NUL (usually and always the location should have '/'), making them "not found". This should fix it. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-07-10Fix up progress report for off-by-one errorLinus Torvalds
We used to print the index of the object we unpacked, not how many we had unpacked. Which caused slightly confusing progress reports like 100% (2/3) done rather than the more obvious "3/3" for 100% ;)
2005-07-10Make "git log" exit properly if not in a git archiveLinus Torvalds
Instead of getting an incomprehensible error message from git-rev-list.
2005-07-10Avoid signedness warnings in sha1_file.cLinus Torvalds
Very irritating. But "snprintf()" wants "char *", and zlib wants "unsigned char *".
2005-07-10[PATCH] Remove map_sha1_fileDaniel Barkalow
Remove map_sha1_file(), now unused. Signed-off-by: Daniel Barkalow <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-07-10[PATCH] write_sha1_to_fd()Daniel Barkalow
Add write_sha1_to_fd(), which writes an object to a file descriptor. This includes support for unpacking it and recompressing it. Signed-off-by: Daniel Barkalow <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-07-10git-rev-list: allow missing objects when the parent is marked UNINTERESTINGLinus Torvalds
We still want the "top-most" uninteresting object to exist, so that we know that we have reached it.
2005-07-09Add "-q" flag to "git commit"Linus Torvalds
Maybe you don't want the progress report.
2005-07-09git-unpack-objects: show progress report by defaultLinus Torvalds
This ends up being very calming for big "git clone"s, since otherwise you just get very frustrated with a long silence, wondering whether it's working at all. Use "-q" to quiet it down. Now if we could just do the same for the initial "figure out what to pack" phase, which can also be quite slow if the other end is busy (or not packed and not in cache)...
2005-07-09[PATCH] format-patch: fix skipping of blank-linesJunio C Hamano
If it is fed a commit with more than one leading blank lines, the sed scripts git-format-patch-script used looped forever. Using git-stripspace upfront makes the sed script somewhat simpler to work around this problem. Also use git-rev-parse so that we can say $ git-format-patch-script HEAD^^^^ to prepare the latest four patches for e-mail submission. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-07-09Update the tutorial a bitLinus Torvalds
Add notes on branches, merging, tagging, and update some of the usage to the friendlier "git cmd" syntax. It's still ridiculously lacking, but perhaps it's a _bit_ more useful.
2005-07-09Make "git tag" more user-friendlyLinus Torvalds
Instead of having to cut-and-paste the result, write it to the tag directory directly. Also, start an editor for the tag message, rather than just reading it from stdin.
2005-07-09Make "git resolve" take the merge message in $3Linus Torvalds
It used to do "Merge $3" as the message, but that ends up being inconvenient, and much more easily done inside git-pull-script instead. This makes the third argument to "git resolve" much easier to explain.
2005-07-09[PATCH] Use SHA1 for git-update-cache --refreshBryan Larsen
Change git-update-cache --refresh behaviour to use sha1's rather than comparing byte by byte. [JC demangled whitespace from the posted patch himself because he liked it so much.

2005-07-09[PATCH] Expose object ID computation functions.Bryan Larsen
This patch makes the first half of write_sha1_file() and index_fd() externally visible, to allow callers to compute the object ID without actually storing it in the object database. [JC demangled the whitespaces himself because he liked the patch so much, and reworked the interface to index_fd() slightly, taking suggestion from Linus and of his own.] Signed-off-by: Bryan Larsen <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-07-09Teach "git clone" about rsync sourcesLinus Torvalds
That will be the normal way of cloning anonymously for a while, so let's make sure it's easy to use.
2005-07-08Make "upload-pack" match git-fetch-pack usageLinus Torvalds
Do the default "try xyz.git xyz fails" thing for the directory we get passed in.
2005-07-08Add "mkpath()" helper functionLinus Torvalds
I'm bored with doing it by hand all the time.
2005-07-08Mark git-relink-script and git-repack-script executableLinus Torvalds
Sure, "install" will default to installing it executable anyway, but this is the right thing to do.
2005-07-08Make "git clone" a lot more user-friendlyLinus Torvalds
This silently adds the ".git" directory component if needed, so you don't need to state it explicitly for the source. Also, it turns the source into an absolute pathname when local, so that you can use relative pathnames without losing sight of the source when we cd into the destination.
2005-07-08Add "git-push-script" to make a more regular interfaceLinus Torvalds
It only does local and ssh pushes, because it's really just a wrapper for git-send-pack. We might make it do an rsync mirror or something, of course.
2005-07-08Teach 'git-send-pack' to send new branches and tags.Linus Torvalds
The protocol always supported it, but send-pack didn't actually know how to tell the other side about a new branch/tag. NOTE! You'll have to name it explicitly on the command line: if you don't name any branches, git-send-pack will default to the branches that already exist.
2005-07-08Make "for_each_ref()" always use the "canonical" refname.Linus Torvalds
It always uses a git-relative pathname, ie "refs/heads/master" instead of ".git/refs/heads/master" or whatever your GIT_DIR might be. This way when we send refs back-and-forth between repositories, there's never any question about GIT_DIR on either side.
2005-07-08[PATCH] Use sq_quote() to properly quote the parameter to call shell.Junio C Hamano
This tries to be more lenient to the users and stricter to the attackers by quoting the input properly for shell safety, instead of forbidding certain characters from the input. Things to note: - We do not quote "prog" parameter (which comes from --exec). The user should know what he is doing. --exec='echo foo' will supply the first two parameters to the resulting command, while --exec="'echo foo'" will give the first parameter, a single string with a space inside. - We do not care too much about leaking the sq_quote() output just before running exec().

2005-07-08[PATCH] Make sq_expand() available as sq_quote().Junio C Hamano
A useful shell safety helper sq_expand() was hidden as a static function in diff.c. Extract it out and make it available as sq_quote(). Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-07-08Add "git-sh-setup-script" for common git shell script setupLinus Torvalds
It sets up the normal git environment variables and a few helper functions (currently just "die()"), and returns ok if it all looks like a git archive. So use it something like . git-sh-setup-script || die "Not a git archive" to make the rest of the git scripts more careful and readable.
2005-07-08git-diff-*: support "-u" as a synonym for "-p"Linus Torvalds
I'm probably not the only one whose fingers have gotten hard-wired to use "-u" for "unified diff".

This is the script I use to prepare patches for e-mail submission. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-07-08Mark more characters shell-safe.Linus Torvalds
I still worry about just quoting things when passing it off to "ssh" or "sh -c", so I'm being anal. But _, ^ and , are certainly ok and while both ~ and @ can have speacial meaning to shell/ssh they are benign.
2005-07-08git-fsck-cache: don't complain about lacking references when they are all in ↵Linus Torvalds
packs. We used to not count them at all, which then made us complain that there were no refs.

2005-07-07[PATCH] Prevent t6000 series from dropping useless sed.script in t/Junio C Hamano
The Makefile in the test suite directory considers any file matching t[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]-*.sh as the top-level test script to be executed. Unfortunately this was not documented, and the common test library, was named to match that pattern. This caused to be called from Makefile as the top-level program, causing it to leave t/sed.script file behind. Rename it to to prevent this, and document the naming convention a bit more clearly.

2005-07-07[PATCH] Short-circuit git-clone-pack while cloning locally (take 2).Junio C Hamano
When we are cloning a repository on a local filesystem, it is faster to just create a hard linkfarm of .git/object hierarchy and copy the .git/refs files. By default, the script uses the clone-pack method, but it can be told with the -l flag to do the hard linkfarm (falling back on recursive file copy) to replicate the .git/object hierarchy.

2005-07-07[PATCH] Write sed script directly into temp file, rather than a variableJon Seymour
When sed uses \n rather than ; as a separator (for BSD sed(1) compat), it is cleaner to use a file directly, rather than an environment variable containing \n characters.
