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.

2005-08-29Remove git-apply-patch-script.Junio C Hamano
Now the rebase is rewritten to use git cherry-pick, there is no user for that ancient script. I've checked Cogito and StGIT to make sure they do not use it. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2005-08-27Update the main documentation index.Junio C Hamano
Gitzilla updated bunch of undocumented command pages, so move the entries in the main documentation index around to put them in proper category. Ordering within category will be fixed later. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>

2005-08-23Add placeholders for missing documents.Junio C Hamano
The text does not say anything interesting, but at least the author list should reflect something close to reality. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2005-08-23Clean-up output from "git show-branch" and document it.Junio C Hamano
When showing only one branch a lot of default output becomes redundant, so clean it up a bit, and document what is shown. Retire the earlier implementation "git-show-branches-script". Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>

2005-08-17[PATCH] Add a bit more links to the commands to the main git(7) page.Junio C Hamano
There are many programs like git-add not described at all, and the organization of the list of commands may be suboptimal, but we have to start somewhere. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2005-08-15[PATCH] Add documentation for git repack and git-prune-packed.Junio C Hamano
[jc: the patch forgot to update the main git.txt documentation, making all these new documentation practically no-op, so I added a minimum attempt linking them from there.] Signed-off-by: Ryan Anderson <ryan@michonline.com>

2005-08-15Add git-show-branches-scriptJunio C Hamano
Often I find myself wanting to do quick branches check when I am not in the windowing environment and cannot run gitk. This stupid script shows commits leading to the heads of interesting branches with indication which ones belong to which branches, so that fork point is somewhat discernible without using gitk. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2005-08-15Documentation updates.Junio C Hamano
Linus brought up that documentation for many commands have incorrect attribution. I started counting lines again, but ended up adding a handful of missing manual pages. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>

2005-08-04Retire check-files.Junio C Hamano
The king penguin said: It has no point any more, all the tools check the file status on their own, and yes, the thing should probably be removed. and the faithful servant makes it so. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>

2005-07-15[PATCH] Add git-var a tool for reading interesting git variables.Eric W. Biederman
Sharing code between shell scripts and C is a challenge. The program git-var allows us to have a set of named values that a shell script can interrogate and a normal C program can simply call the functions that compute them. Allowing sharing when computing plain test values. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-07-14[PATCH] Documentation: push-pull commands into a separate category.Junio C Hamano
This splits push-pull related commands into a separate category. I think a bigger overhaul of the main index is needed, but have not got around to it. Help is welcome. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-07-14[PATCH] clone-pack and clone-script: documentation and add a missing parameter.Junio C Hamano
While adding the documentation for these two commands, I noticed that the name of the program on the other end (git-upload-pack) is already almost configurable but git-clone-pack lacked command line parameter parsing to actually use anything but default, so I introduced --exec= like other remote commands while I was at it.

2005-07-09[PATCH] Expose object ID computation functions.Bryan Larsen
This patch makes the first half of write_sha1_file() and index_fd() externally visible, to allow callers to compute the object ID without actually storing it in the object database. [JC demangled the whitespaces himself because he liked the patch so much, and reworked the interface to index_fd() slightly, taking suggestion from Linus and of his own.] Signed-off-by: Bryan Larsen <bryan.larsen@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-06-29[PATCH] Add git-verify-pack command.Junio C Hamano
Given a list of <pack>.idx files, this command validates the index file and the corresponding .pack file for consistency. This patch also uses the same validation mechanism in fsck-cache when the --full flag is used. During normal operation, sha1_file.c verifies that a given .idx file matches the .pack file by comparing the SHA1 checksum stored in .idx file and .pack file as a minimum sanity check. We may further want to check the pack signature and version when we map the pack, but that would be a separate patch. Earlier, errors to map a pack file was not flagged fatal but led to a random fatal error later. This version explicitly die()s when such an error is detected.

2005-06-27[PATCH] Remove "delta" object representation.Junio C Hamano
Packed delta files created by git-pack-objects seems to be the way to go, and existing "delta" object handling code has exposed the object representation details to too many places. Remove it while we refactor code to come up with a proper interface in sha1_file.c. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-06-05[PATCH] rename git-rpush and git-rpull to git-ssh-push and git-ssh-pullJunio C Hamano

2005-05-19[PATCH] manpage name conflictSebastian Kuzminsky
This moves the git manpage to man7, since "git" isn't a direct command per se. It also does two other things: * Sort of works around the asciidoc 6.0.3 bug where the manpages all get called "git.1". It just renames them to what they should have been called. * Fixes a cut-n-paste bug in git-diff-helper.txt that was making asciidoc choke.
2005-05-15[PATCH 2/3] Rename git-diff-tree-helper to git-diff-helper.Junio C Hamano
It used to be that diff-tree needed helper support to parse its raw output to generate diffs, but these days git-diff-* family produces the same output and the helper is not tied to diff-tree anymore. Drop "tree" from its name. This commit is done separately to record just the rename and no file content changes. The changes in the renamed files are recorded in the next commit. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Bundled with the changes in the unrenamed files. Signed-off-by: Petr Baudis <pasky@ucw.cz>
