2008-02-29unpack-objects: prevent writing of inconsistent objectsMartin Koegler
This patch introduces a strict mode, which ensures that: - no malformed object will be written - no object with broken links will be written The patch ensures this by delaying the write of all non blob object. These object are written, after all objects they link to are written. An error can only result in unreferenced objects. Signed-off-by: Martin Koegler <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
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]]]. Bibliographic anchor. (?su)[\\]?\[\[\[(?P<attrlist>[\w][\w-]*?)\]\]\]=anchor3 # Anchor: [[id,xreflabel]] This default regex now matches explicit values, and unfortunately in this case gitlink was being matched by just 'link', causing the wrong inline macro template to be applied. By renaming the macro, we can avoid being matched by the wrong regex. Signed-off-by: Dan McGee <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
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.

2006-09-13unpack-objects -r: call it "recover".Junio C Hamano
The code called this operation "desperate" but the option flag is -r and the word "recover" describes what it does better. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-09-04unpack-objects desperately salvages objects from a corrupt packJunio C Hamano
The command unpack-objects dies upon the first error. This is probably considered a feature -- if a pack is corrupt, instead of trying to extract from it and possibly risking to contaminate a good repository with objects whose validity is dubious, we should seek a good copy of the pack and retry. However, we may not have any good copy anywhere. This implements the last resort effort to extract what are salvageable from such a corrupt pack. This flag might have helped Sergio when recovering from a corrupt pack. In my test, it managed to salvage 247 objects out of a pack that had 251 objects but without it the command stopped after extracting 73 objects. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
