2005-09-22Retire rev-tree.Junio C Hamano
Some old scripts might still use git-rev-tree, but it really is clearly inferior in every way to git-rev-list that such scripts should be fixed anyway. Fixing them should be pretty easy. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
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>

2005-08-26Add Abstract: support for howto index generator.Junio C Hamano
Maybe it's time for me to really learn asciidoc. Also I should do Perl ;-). Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2005-08-26[PATCH] update howto/using-topic-branches.txttony.luck@intel.com
Various updates and cleanups for my howto on using branches in GIT as a Linux subsystem maintainer. Three categories of changes: 1) Updates for new features in GIT 0.99.5 2) Changes to use "git fetch" rather than "git pull" to update local linus branch. 3) Cleanups suggested by Len Brown Signed-off-by: Tony Luck <tony.luck@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2005-08-18[PATCH] updates for Documentation/howto/using-topic-branches.txtLuck, Tony
Small fix (use "git branch" to make branches, rather than "git checkout -b"). Optimization for trivial patches (apply to release and merge to test). Three sample scripts appended. Signed-off-by: Tony Luck <tony.luck@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2005-08-15Keep excellent tutorial for using topic branches by Tony LuckJunio C Hamano
I would eventually like to move this to become a part of the tutorial, but anyway, this was an excellent post that describes how topic branches can be used to keep track of local changes.
2005-08-15[PATCH] Add some simple howtos, culled from the mailing list.Ryan Anderson
I think these are useful, and I think putting them in a new "howto" directory might help some users until we get to the point of splitting up the tutorial to be easier to read. Given the authorship, I think it's safe to put these in the repository. Signed-off-by: Ryan Anderson <ryan@michonline.com>
