2005-11-06Debian: test build.Junio C Hamano
Update version number in changelog to match the 0.99.9.GIT version number, to allow building private deb from wip. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-06Further Debian split fixes.Junio C Hamano
The doc installation was flattened, breaking links to howto/. Silly cut&paste error made git-doc depend on tk8.4. Doh. Move most of the documentation (except manuals) to git-doc. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-06Install asciidoc sources as well.Junio C Hamano
Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-06Package split: Debian.Junio C Hamano
As discussed on the list, split the foreign SCM interoperability packages and documentation from the git-core binary package. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-06Simplify CFLAGS/DEFINES in MakefileJunio C Hamano
I think the original intention was to make CFLAGS overridable from the make command line, but somehow we ended up accumulating conditional makefile sections that wrongly appends values to CFLAGs. These assignments do not work when the user actually override them from the make command line! DEFINES are handled the same way; it was seemingly overridable, but the makefile sections had assignments, which meant overriding it from the command line broke things. This simplifies things by limiting the internal futzing to ALL_CFLAGS, and by removing DEFINES altogether. Overriding CFLAGS from the command line should start working with this change.

2005-11-06git-fetch: fail if specified refspec does not match remote.Junio C Hamano
'git-fetch remote no-such-ref' succeeded without fetching any ref from the remote. Detect such case and report an error. Note that this makes 'git-fetch remote master master' to fail, because the remote branch 'master' matches the first refspec, and the second refspec is left unmatched, which is detected by the error checking logic. This is somewhat unintuitive, but giving the same refspec more than once to git-fetch is useless in any case so it should not be much of a problem. I'd accept a patch to change this if somebody cares enough, though. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-06Documentation: pull/clone ref mapping clarification.Junio C Hamano
Josef Weidendorfer points out that git-clone documentation does not mention the initial copying of remote branch heads into corresponding local branches. Also clarify the purpose of the ref mappings description in the "remotes" file and recommended workflow. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-06git-format-patch: silly typo fix.Junio C Hamano
Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-05test: t4102-apply-rename fails with strict umask.Junio C Hamano
We checked the result of patch application for full permission bits, when the only thing we cared about was to make sure the executable bit was correctly set. Noticed by Peter Baumann. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-05git-clone: fix local cloneJunio C Hamano
If we let cpio to create the leading directories implicitly, it ends up having funny perm bits (GNU cpio 2.5 and 2.6, at least). This leaves .git/object/?? directories readable only by the owner. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-05init-db::copy_file() - use copy_fd()Junio C Hamano

Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-05Documentation: format-patchJunio C Hamano
Add examples section and talk about using this to cherry-pick commits. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-05format-patch: "rev1.." should mean "rev1..HEAD"Junio C Hamano
"rev1.." should mean "rev1..HEAD"; git-diff users are familiar with that syntax. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-05Documentation: git-fetch/pull updates.Junio C Hamano
We do not accept multiple <refspecs> on one Pull:/Push: line right now (we could lift this tentative workaround for the broken refnames), but we have always accepted multiple such lines, so use that form in the examples and discussion. Also explicitly mention that Octopus is made only with an explicit command line request and never from Pull: lines. Add a couple of cross references. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-05Added a few examples to git-pull man page.Jon Loeliger
Clarified and added notes for pull/push refspecs. Converted to back-ticks for literal text examples. [jc: Also fixed git-pull description that still talked about its calling git-resolve or git-octopus (we do not anymore; instead we just call git-merge). BTW, I am reasonably impressed by how well "git-am -3" applied this patch, which had some conflicts because I've updated the documentation somewhat.] Signed-off-by: Jon Loeliger <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-05Document the --no-commit flag betterJunio C Hamano
Pasky and I did overlapping documentation independently; this is to pick up better wordings from what he sent me. Signed-off-by: Petr Baudis <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-04Documentation: -merge and -pull: describe merge strategies.Junio C Hamano
... and give a couple of examples of running 'git pull' against local repository. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-04Documentation: git-add -- do not say "cache", add examples.Junio C Hamano
Its use of git-ls-files --others is very nice, but sometimes gives surprising results, so we'd better talk about it. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-04git-tag: Do not assume the working tree root is writable.Junio C Hamano
This is a long overdue companion commit that fixed git-commit (Santi's f8e2c54c9a17af3319e96db1d9e97ace36ae6831). Having the temporary files in the working tree root when making tags is not as bad because it does not involve 'git status' as the git-commit case, but this makes things more consistent. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-04Remove the temp file if it is empty after the request has failedNick Hengeveld
After using cg-update to pull, empty files named *.temp are left in the various subdirectories of .git/objects/. These are created by git-http-fetch to hold data as it's being fetched from the remote repository. They are left behind after a transfer error so that the next time git-http-fetch runs it can pick up where it left off. If they're empty though, it would make more sense to delete them rather than leaving them behind for the next attempt. Signed-off-by: Nick Hengeveld <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2005-11-03git-merge-ours: make sure our index matches HEADJunio C Hamano
git-merge expects this check to be done appropriately by the merge strategy backends. In the case of merge-ours strategy, the resulting tree comes what we have in the index file, so it must match the current HEAD; otherwise it would not be "ours" merge. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-03Add 'ours' merge strategy.Junio C Hamano
This adds the coolest merge strategy ever, "ours". It can take arbitrary number of foreign heads and merge them into the current branch, with the resulting tree always taken from our branch head, hence its name. What this means is that you can declare that the current branch supersedes the development histories of other branches using this merge strategy. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-03Add --no-commit to git-merge/git-pull.Junio C Hamano
With --no-commit flag, git-pull will perform the merge but pretends as if the merge needed a hand resolve even if automerge cleanly resolves, to give the user a chance to add further changes and edit the commit message. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-03Document --since and --until options to rev-parse.Junio C Hamano
The usability magic were hidden in the source code without being documented, and even the maintainer did not know about them ;-). Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-03Be careful when dereferencing tags.Junio C Hamano
One caller of deref_tag() was not careful enough to make sure what deref_tag() returned was not NULL (i.e. we found a tag object that points at an object we do not have). Fix it, and warn about refs that point at such an incomplete tag where needed. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-03[PATCH] Clean up the SunOS Makefile rulePeter Eriksen
Don't set a non-standard CURLDIR as default, and fix an error in Solaris 10 by setting NEEDS_LIBICONV. Signed-off-by: Peter Eriksen <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-03Ignore '\r' at the end of line in $GIT_DIR/configJunio C Hamano
Unfortunate people may have to use $GIT_DIR/config edited on DOSsy machine on UNIXy machine. Ignore '\r' immediately followed by '\n'. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-03remove CR/LF from .gitignoreAlex Riesen
For everyone cursed by dos/windows line endings (aka CRLF): The code reading the .gitignore files (excludes and excludes per directory) leaves \r in the patterns, which causes fnmatch to fail for no obvious reason. Just remove a "\r" preceding a "\n" unconditionally. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-03Do not fail on hierarchical branch names.Junio C Hamano
"git-checkout -b frotz/nitfol master" failed to create $GIT_DIR/refs/heads/frotz/nitfol but went ahead and updated $GIT_DIR/HEAD to point at it, resulting in a corrupt repository. Exit when we cannot create the new branch with an error status. While we are at it, there is no reason to forbid subdirectories in refs/heads, so make sure we handle that correctly. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-03Make test-date buildable again.Junio C Hamano
Now we define and use our own ctype-replacement, we need to link with it. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-02git-clone: do not forget to create origin branch.Junio C Hamano
The newly cloned repository by default had .git/remotes/origin set up to track the remote master to origin, but forgot to create the origin branch ourselves. Also it hardcoded the assumption that the remote HEAD points at "master", which may not always be true. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-02Do not put automatic merge message after signed-off-by line.Junio C Hamano
'git-commit -s' after a failed automerge inserted the automerge message in a wrong place. The signed-off-by line should come last. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-02Add -P to the documentation head.Junio C Hamano
This is a companion patch for 211dcac6430cdf77fcf2a968ffaf9313b5c059b0 commit, to add the newly introduced -P option to the list of options. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

Tell cvsps to be quiet, unless we've been told to be verbose. Signed-off-by: Martin Langhoff <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-02cvsimport: introduce -P <cvsps-output-file> optionMartin Langhoff
-P:: <cvsps-output-file> Instead of calling cvsps, read the provided cvsps output file. Useful for debugging or when cvsps is being handled outside cvsimport. Signed-off-by: Martin Langhoff <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-02cvsimport: catch error condition where cvs host disappearsMartin Langhoff
Add error handling for cases where the cvs server goes away unexpectedly. While I don't know why the cvs server is so erratic, we should definitely exit here before committing bogus files. Signed-off-by: Martin Langhoff <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-02Do not install backward compatibility links anymore.Junio C Hamano
This is a companion patch to 4f9dcf7e5cf6c82455925102d315daf3b833e6d6 which stops mentioning the old command names. As promised, we do not install symlinks to let people use backward compatibility names anymore. script is still shipped to help people who installed previous git by hand to clean up the leftover symlinks. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-01Strip any trailing slash on destination argumentJosef Weidendorfer
Needed because generating a target paths will add another slash. This fixes e.g. "git-mv file dir/", which removed "file" from version control by renaming it to "dir//file", as git-update-index does not accept such paths. Thanks goes to Ben Lau for noting this bug. Signed-off-by: Josef Weidendorfer <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-01git-am.txt is no stub anymorePetr Baudis
That notice was added by me for the emergency documentation, but Junio already expanded it to a full-fledged manual page. This patch removes the notice. Signed-off-by: Petr Baudis <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-01Documentation for git-fmt-merge-msgPetr Baudis
Simple description. It appears to be mostly internal command, but hey, it is (it seems) the only undocumented one, so let's fix it up... Also add a note about it to git-merge documentation. Signed-off-by: Petr Baudis <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-01Remove git-findtags.perlPetr Baudis

2005-11-01Remove 'Previously this command was known as ...' messages.Jon Loeliger
For a 1.0 release, there is no need to maintain the historical "Previously this command was known as..." information on the doc splash page. It is noise; command names should stand on their own now. Signed-off-by: Jon Loeliger <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-01Fix constness of input in mozilla-sha1/sha1.c::SHA1_Update().Junio C Hamano
Among the three of our own implementations, only this one lacked "const" from the second argument. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-01Document the use of "current directory" as pull source.Junio C Hamano
The repository to pull from can be a local repository, and as a special case the current directory can be specified to perform merges across local branches. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-10-31Add examples for git-log documentation and others.Linus Torvalds
I don't think people really follow the links or think very abstractly at all in the first place. So I was thinking more of some explicit examples. I actually think every command should have an example in the man-page, and hey, here's a patch to start things off. Of course, I'm not exactly "Mr Documentation", and I don't know that this is the prettiest way to do this, but I checked that the resulting html and man-page seems at least reasonable. And hey, if the examples look like each other, that's just because I'm also not "Mr Imagination". Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-10-31Work around an RPM build problem.Junio C Hamano
The require statement at the top of git-svnimport seems to confuse rpmbuild dependency generation. It uses the newer notation "v5.8.0", and rpm ends up requiring "perl(v5.8.0)", while we would want it to say something like "perl >= 0:5.008". Ryan suggests old-style "require 5.008" might fix this problem, so here it is. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
