2010-07-05Documentation: link to gitrevisions rather than git-rev-parseMichael J Gruber
Currently, whenever we need documentation for revisions and ranges, we link to the git-rev-parse man page, i.e. a plumbing man page, which has this along with the documentation of all rev-parse modes. Link to the new gitrevisions man page instead in all cases except - when the actual git-rev-parse command is referred to or - in very technical context (git-send-pack).

2010-04-04Rename ONE_FILESYSTEM to DISCOVERY_ACROSS_FILESYSTEMJunio C Hamano
If a missing ONE_FILESYSTEM defaults to true, the only users who set this variable set it to false to tell git not to limit the discovery to one filesystem; there are too many negations in one sentence to make a simple panda brain dizzy. Use the variable GIT_DISCOVERY_ACROSS_FILESYSTEM that changes the behaviour from the default "limit to one filesystem" to "cross the boundary as I ask you to"; makes the semantics much more straight forward.

2010-04-04GIT_ONE_FILESYSTEM: flip the default to stop at filesystem boundariesJunio C Hamano
Regarding the new environment variable, Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org> writes on Tue, 30 Mar 2010 in <alpine.LFD.2.00.1003301537150.3707@i5.linux-foundation.org>: I suspect that it is _very_ unusual to have a source repo that crosses multiple filesystems, and the original reason for this patch-series seems to me to be likely to be more common than that multi-fs case. So having the logic go the other way would seem to match the common case, no? The "crossing filesystem boundary" condition is checked by comparing st_dev field in the result from stat(2). This is slightly worrysome if non-POSIX ports return different values in the field even for directories in the same work tree extracted to the same "filesystem". Erik Faye-Lund confirms that in the msysgit port st_dev is 0, so this should be safe, as "even Windows is safe" ;-) This will affect those who use /.git to cram /etc and /home/me in the same repostiory, /home is mounted from non-root filesystem, and a git operation is done from inside /home/me/src. But that is such a corner case we don't want to give preference over helping people who will benefit from having this default so that they do not have to suffer from slow automounters.

2010-03-28Add support for GIT_ONE_FILESYSTEMLars R. Damerow
This patch makes git pay attention to the GIT_ONE_FILESYSTEM environment variable. When that variable is set, git will stop searching for a GIT_DIR when it attempts to cross a filesystem boundary. When working in an environment with too many automount points to make maintaining a GIT_CEILING_DIRECTORIES list enjoyable, GIT_ONE_FILESYSTEM gives the option of turning all such attempts off with one setting.

2010-02-15git.1: Clarify the behavior of the --paginate optionJonathan Nieder
The --paginate option is meant to negate the effect of an explicit or implicit pager.<cmd> = false setting. Thus it turns the pager on if output is going to a terminal rather than unconditionally. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <jrnieder@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>

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.
