2010-11-10t/t7004-tag: test handling of rfc1991 signaturesMichael J Gruber
Currently, git expects "-----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----" at the beginning of a signature. But gpg uses "MESSAGE" instead of "SIGNATURE" when used with the "rfc1991" option. This leads to git's failing to verify it's own signed tags, among other problems. Add tests for all code paths (tag -v, tag -l -n largenumber, tag -f without -m) where signature detection matters.

2010-10-06work around buggy S_ISxxx(m) implementationsRené Scharfe
There are buggy implementations of S_ISxxx(m) macros on some platforms (e.g. NetBSD). The issue is that NetBSD doesn't take care to wrap its macro arguments in parentheses, so on Linux and sane systems we have S_ISREG(m) defined as something like: (((m) & S_IFMT) == S_IFREG) But on NetBSD: ((m & _S_IFMT) == _S_IFREG) Since a caller in builtin/diff.c called our macro as `S_IFREG | 0644' this bug introduced a logic error on NetBSD, since the precedence of bit-wise & is higher than | in C.

2010-10-06xdiff: cast arguments for ctype functions to unsigned charJonathan Nieder
The ctype functions isspace(), isalnum(), et al take an integer argument representing an unsigned character, or -1 for EOF. On platforms with a signed char, it is unsafe to pass a char to them without casting it to unsigned char first. Most of git is already shielded against this by the ctype implementation in git-compat-util.h, but xdiff, which uses libc ctype.h, ought to be fixed.

2010-10-06init: plug tiny one-time memory leakJonathan Nieder
The buffer used to construct paths like ".git/objects/info" and ".git/objects/pack" is allocated on the heap and never freed. So free it. While at it, factor out the relevant code into its own function and rename the sha1_dir variable to object_directory (to match the change in everyday usage after the renaming of SHA1_FILE_DIRECTORY in v0.99~603^2~7, 2005).

2010-10-03setup: make sure git dir path is in a permanent bufferJonathan Nieder
If setup_git_env() is run before the usual repository discovery sequence and .git is a file with the text gitdir: <path> (with <path> any string) then the in-core git_dir variable is set to the result of converting <path> to an absolute path using make_absolute_path(). Unfortunately make_absolute_path() returns its result in a static buffer that is overwritten by later calls. Such a call could cause later accesses to git_dir (from git_pathdup(), for example) to read the wrong path, leaving git very confused. It is not obvious whether any existing code in git will trigger the problem, but in any case, it is worth a few dozen bytes to copy the return value from make_absolute_path() for some added peace of mind.
