2009-06-27read-tree: migrate to parse-optionsStephen Boyd
Cleanup the documentation to explicitly state that --exclude-directory is only meaningful when used with -u. Also make the documentation more consistent with the usage message printed with read-tree --help-all. The -m, --prefix, --reset options are performing similar actions (setting some flags, read_cache_unmerged(), checking for illegal option combinations). Instead of performing these actions when the options are parsed, we delay performing them until after parse-opts has finished. The bit fields in struct unpack_trees_options have been promoted to full unsigned ints. This is necessary to avoid "foo ? 1 : 0" constructs to set these fields.

2008-09-10checkout: do not lose staged removalJunio C Hamano
The logic to checkout a different commit implements the safety to never lose user's local changes. For example, switching from a commit to another commit, when you have changed a path that is different between them, need to merge your changes to the version from the switched-to commit, which you may not necessarily be able to resolve easily. By default, "git checkout" refused to switch branches, to give you a chance to stash your local changes (or use "-m" to merge, accepting the risks of getting conflicts). This safety, however, had one deliberate hole since early June 2005. When your local change was to remove a path (and optionally to stage that removal), the command checked out the path from the switched-to commit nevertheless. This was to allow an initial checkout to happen smoothly (e.g. an initial checkout is done by starting with an empty index and switching from the commit at the HEAD to the same commit). We can tighten the rule slightly to allow this special case to pass, without losing sight of removal explicitly done by the user, by noticing if the index is truly empty when the operation begins. For historical background, see: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/4641/focus=4646 This case is marked as *0* in the message, which both Linus and I said "it feels somewhat wrong but otherwise we cannot start from an empty index".

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>

2008-01-07Documentation: rename gitlink macro to linkgitDan McGee
Between AsciiDoc 8.2.2 and 8.2.3, the following change was made to the stock Asciidoc configuration: @@ -149,7 +153,10 @@ # Inline macros. # Backslash prefix required for escape processing. # (?s) re flag for line spanning. -(?su)[\\]?(?P<name>\w(\w|-)*?):(?P<target>\S*?)(\[(?P<attrlist>.*?)\])= + +# Explicit so they can be nested. +(?su)[\\]?(?P<name>(http|https|ftp|file|mailto|callto|image|link)):(?P<target>\S*?)(\[(?P<attrlist>.*?)\])= + # Anchor: [[[id]]].

2007-06-07War on whitespaceJunio C Hamano
This uses "git-apply --whitespace=strip" to fix whitespace errors that have crept in to our source files over time. There are a few files that need to have trailing whitespaces (most notably, test vectors). The results still passes the test, and build result in Documentation/ area is unchanged.

2007-06-02Create a new manpage for the gitignore format, and reference it elsewhereJosh Triplett
Only git-ls-files(1) describes the gitignore format in detail, and it does so with reference to git-ls-files options. Most users don't use the plumbing command git-ls-files directly, and shouldn't have to look in its manpage for information on the gitignore format. Create a new manpage gitignore(5) (Documentation/gitignore.txt), and factor out the gitignore documentation into that file, changing it to refer to .gitignore and $GIT_DIR/info/exclude as used by porcelain commands. Reference gitignore(5) from other relevant manpages and documentation. Remove now-redundant information on exclude patterns from git-ls-files(1), leaving only information on how git-ls-files options specify exclude patterns and what precedence they have.

The original index file cannot have anything at the path `<prefix>` itself, and have nothing in `<prefix>/` directory.

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.
