2010-01-10Documentation: spell 'git cmd' without dash throughoutThomas Rast
The documentation was quite inconsistent when spelling 'git cmd' if it only refers to the program, not to some specific invocation syntax: both 'git-cmd' and 'git cmd' spellings exist. The current trend goes towards dashless forms, and there is precedent in 647ac70 (git-svn.txt: stop using dash-form of commands., 2009-07-07) to actively eliminate the dashed variants. Replace 'git-cmd' with 'git cmd' throughout, except where git-shell, git-cvsserver, git-upload-pack, git-receive-pack, and git-upload-archive are concerned, because those really live in the $PATH.
2009-07-31git fast-export: add --no-data optionGeoffrey Irving
When using git fast-export and git fast-import to rewrite the history of a repository with large binary files, almost all of the time is spent dealing with blobs. This is extremely inefficient if all we want to do is rewrite the commits and tree structure. --no-data skips the output of blobs and writes SHA-1s instead of marks, which provides a massive speedup.

2009-06-27fast-export: Add a --tag-of-filtered-object option for newly dangling tagsElijah Newren
When providing a list of paths to limit what is exported, the object that a tag points to can be filtered out entirely. This new switch allows the user to specify what should happen to the tag in such a case. The default action, 'abort' will exit with an error message. With 'drop', the tag will simply be omitted from the output. With 'rewrite', if the object tagged was a commit, the tag will be modified to tag an alternate commit. The alternate commit is determined by treating the original commit as the "parent" of the tag and then using the parent rewriting algorithm of the revision traversal machinery (related to the "--parents" option of "git rev-list") Signed-off-by: Elijah Newren <newren@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>

2008-12-20fast-export: deal with tag objects that do not have a taggerJohannes Schindelin
When no tagger was found (old Git produced tags like this), no "tagger" line is printed (but this is incompatible with the current git fast-import). Alternatively, you can pass the option --fake-missing-tagger, forcing fast-export to fake a tagger Unspecified Tagger <no-tagger> with a tag date of the beginning of (Unix) time in the case of a missing tagger, so that fast-import is still able to import the result.

2008-12-10Improve language in git-merge.txt and related docsRalf Wildenhues
Improve some minor language and format issues like hyphenation, phrases, spacing, word order, comma, attributes. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2008-07-30Support copy and rename detection in fast-export.Alexander Gavrilov
Although it does not matter for Git itself, tools that export to systems that explicitly track copies and renames can benefit from such information. This patch makes fast-export output correct action logs when -M or -C are enabled. Signed-off-by: Alexander Gavrilov <angavrilov@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2008-07-05manpages: italicize git command names (which were in teletype font)Jonathan Nieder
The names of git commands are not meant to be entered at the commandline; they are just names. So we render them in italics, as is usual for command names in manpages. Using doit () { perl -e 'for (<>) { s/\`(git-[^\`.]*)\`/'\''\1'\''/g; print }' } for i in git*.txt config.txt diff*.txt blame*.txt fetch*.txt i18n.txt \ merge*.txt pretty*.txt pull*.txt rev*.txt urls*.txt do doit <"$i" >"$i+" && mv "$i+" "$i" done git diff .

2008-07-02Documentation formatting and cleanupJonathan Nieder
Following what appears to be the predominant style, format names of commands and commandlines both as `teletype text`. While we're at it, add articles ("a" and "the") in some places, italicize the name of the command in the manual page synopsis line, and add a comma or two where it seems appropriate.

2008-07-02Documentation: be consistent about "git-" versus "git "Jonathan Nieder
Since the git-* commands are not installed in $(bindir), using "git-command <parameters>" in examples in the documentation is not a good idea. On the other hand, it is nice to be able to refer to each command using one hyphenated word. (There is no escaping it, anyway: man page names cannot have spaces in them.) This patch retains the dash in naming an operation, command, program, process, or action. Complete command lines that can be entered at a shell (i.e., without options omitted) are made to use the dashless form. The changes consist only of replacing some spaces with hyphens and vice versa. After a "s/ /-/g", the unpatched and patched versions are identical. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <jrnieder@uchicago.edu> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2008-06-19builtin-fast-export: Add importing and exporting of revision marksPieter de Bie
This adds the --import-marks and --export-marks to fast-export. These import and export the marks used to for all revisions exported in a similar fashion to what fast-import does. The format is the same as fast-import, so you can create a bidirectional importer / exporter by using the same marks file on both sides.

2007-12-04fast-export: rename the signed tag mode 'ignore' to 'verbatim'Johannes Schindelin
The name 'verbatim' describes much better what this mode does with signed tags. While at it, fix the documentation what it actually does. Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@gmx.de> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2007-12-03Add 'git fast-export', the sister of 'git fast-import'Johannes Schindelin
This program dumps (parts of) a git repository in the format that fast-import understands. For clarity's sake, it does not use the 'inline' method of specifying blobs in the commits, but builds the blobs before building the commits. Since signed tags' signatures will not necessarily be valid (think transformations after the export, or excluding revisions, changing the history), there are 4 modes to handle them: abort (default), ignore, warn and strip. The latter just turns the tags into unsigned ones. Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@gmx.de> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
