2006-05-23Merge branch 'sp/reflog' into nextJunio C Hamano
* sp/reflog: Enable ref log creation in git checkout -b. Create/delete branch ref logs. Include ref log detail in commit, reset, etc. Change order of -m option to update-ref. Correct force_write bug in refs.c Change 'master@noon' syntax to 'master@{noon}'. Log ref updates made by fetch. Force writing ref if it doesn't exist. Added logs/ directory to repository layout. General ref log reading improvements. Fix ref log parsing so it works properly. Support 'master@2 hours ago' syntax Log ref updates to logs/refs/<ref> Convert update-ref to use ref_lock API. Improve abstraction of ref lock/write.
2006-05-21Reference git-check-ref-format in git-branch.Shawn Pearce
Its nice to have git-check-ref-format actually get mentioned in git-branch's documentation as the syntax of a ref name must conform to what is described in git-check-ref-format. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.org> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2006-05-19Enable ref log creation in git checkout -b.Shawn Pearce
Switch git checkout -b to use git-update-ref rather than echo and a shell I/O redirection. This is more in line with typical GIT commands and allows -b to be logged according to the normal ref logging rules. Added -l option to allow users to create the ref log at the same time as creating a branch. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.org> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2006-04-28Fix up remaining man pages that use asciidoc "callouts".Sean Estabrooks
Unfortunately docbook does not allow a callout to be referenced from inside a callout list description. Rewrite one paragraph in git-reset man page to work around this limitation. Signed-off-by: Sean Estabrooks <seanlkml@sympatico.ca>

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.

2005-10-18git-checkout: revert specific paths to either index or a given tree-ish.Junio C Hamano
When extra paths arguments are given, git-checkout reverts only those paths to either the version recorded in the index or the version recorded in the given tree-ish. This has been on the TODO list for quite a while. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2005-09-20[PATCH] Documentation: Update all files to use the new gitlink: macroSergey Vlasov
The replacement was performed automatically by these commands: perl -pi -e 's/link:(git.+)\.html\[\1\]/gitlink:$1\[1\]/g' \ README Documentation/*.txt perl -pi -e 's/link:git\.html\[git\]/gitlink:git\[7\]/g' \ README Documentation/*.txt Signed-off-by: Sergey Vlasov <vsu@altlinux.ru> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2005-09-08Big tool rename.Junio C Hamano
As promised, this is the "big tool rename" patch. The primary differences since 0.99.6 are: (1) git-*-script are no more. The commands installed do not have any such suffix so users do not have to remember if something is implemented as a shell script or not. (2) Many command names with 'cache' in them are renamed with 'index' if that is what they mean. There are backward compatibility symblic links so that you and Porcelains can keep using the old names, but the backward compatibility support is expected to be removed in the near future.
