2005-05-13[PATCH 3/3] Add git-ls-files -k.Junio C Hamano
When checkout-cache attempts to check out a non-directory where a directory exists on the work tree, or to check out a file under directory D when path D is a non-directory on the work tree, the attempt fails. Before running checkout-cache, the user can run git-ls-files with the -k (killed) option to get a list of such paths. The tagged output format uses "K" to denote them. This is useful for Porcelain layer to be careful when dealing with the recently corrected behaviour of checkout-cache.

2005-05-10Rename environment variables.Junio C Hamano
H. Peter Anvin mentioned that using SHA1_whatever as an environment variable name is not nice and we should instead use names starting with "GIT_" prefix to avoid conflicts. Here is what this patch does: * Renames the following environment variables: New name Old Name GIT_AUTHOR_DATE AUTHOR_DATE GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL AUTHOR_EMAIL GIT_AUTHOR_NAME AUTHOR_NAME GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL COMMIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL GIT_COMMITTER_NAME COMMIT_AUTHOR_NAME GIT_ALTERNATE_OBJECT_DIRECTORIES SHA1_FILE_DIRECTORIES GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY SHA1_FILE_DIRECTORY * Introduces a compatibility macro, gitenv(), which does an getenv() and if it fails calls gitenv_bc(), which in turn picks up the value from old name while giving a warning about using an old name. * Changes all users of the environment variable to fetch environment variable with the new name using gitenv(). * Updates the documentation and scripts shipped with Linus GIT distribution. The transition plan is as follows: * We will keep the backward compatibility list used by gitenv() for now, so the current scripts and user environments continue to work as before. The users will get warnings when they have old name but not new name in their environment to the stderr. * The Porcelain layers should start using new names. However, just in case it ends up calling old Plumbing layer implementation, they should also export old names, taking values from the corresponding new names, during the transition period. * After a transition period, we would drop the compatibility support and drop gitenv(). Revert the callers to directly call getenv() but keep using the new names. The last part is probably optional and the transition duration needs to be set to a reasonable value.

2005-05-08Add git-update-cache --replace option.Junio C Hamano
When "path" exists as a file or a symlink in the index, an attempt to add "path/file" is refused because it results in file vs directory conflict. Similarly when "path/file1", "path/file2", etc. exist, an attempt to add "path" as a file or a symlink is refused. With git-update-cache --replace, these existing entries that conflict with the entry being added are automatically removed from the cache, with warning messages.

2005-05-06Implement -v (verbose) option for pull methods other than local transport.Junio C Hamano
This moves the private "say()" function to pull.c, renames it to "pull_say()", and introduces a global variable "get_verbosely" that makes the pull backends report what they fetch. The -v option is added to git-rpull and git-http-pull to match git-local-pull. The documentation is updated to describe these pull commands. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
