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 <>
2007-01-08Documentation: add git user's manualJ. Bruce Fields
The goals are: - Readable from beginning to end in order without having read any other git documentation beforehand. - Helpful section names and cross-references, so it's not too hard to skip around some if you need to. - Organized to allow it to grow much larger (unlike the tutorials) It's more liesurely than tutorial.txt, but tries to stay focused on practical how-to stuff. It adds a discussion of how to resolve merge conflicts, and partial instructions on setting up and dealing with a public repository. I've lifted a little bit from "branching and merging" (e.g., some of the discussion of history diagrams), and could probably steal more if that's OK. (Similarly anyone should of course feel free to reuse bits of this if any parts seem more useful than the whole.) There's a lot of detail on managing branches and using git-fetch, just because those are essential even to people needing read-only access (e.g., kernel testers). I think those sections will be much shorter once the new "git remote" command and the disconnected checkouts are taken into account. I do feel bad about adding yet another piece of documentation, but I we need something that goes through all the basics in a logical order, and I wasn't seeing how to grow the tutorials into that.
