2006-03-06Tweak asciidoc output to work with broken docbook-xslFrancis Daly
docbook-xsl v1.68 incorrectly converts "<screen>" from docbook to manpage by not rendering it verbatim. v1.69 handles it correctly, but not many current popular distributions ship with it. asciidoc by default converts "listingblock" to "<screen>". This change causes asciidoc in git to convert "listingblock" to "<literallayout>", which both old and new docbook-xsl handle correctly. The difference can be seen in any manpage which includes a multi-line example, such as git-branch. [jc: the original patch was an disaster for html backends, so I made it apply only to docbook backends. ] Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2006-03-05Add --temp and --stage=all options to checkout-index.Shawn Pearce
Sometimes it is convient for a Porcelain to be able to checkout all unmerged files in all stages so that an external merge tool can be executed by the Porcelain or the end-user. Using git-unpack-file on each stage individually incurs a rather high penalty due to the need to fork for each file version obtained. git-checkout-index -a --stage=all will now do the same thing, but faster.

2006-03-01Rip out merge-order and make "git log <paths>..." work again.Linus Torvalds
Well, assuming breaking --merge-order is fine, here's a patch (on top of the other ones) that makes git log <filename> actually work, as far as I can tell. I didn't add the logic for --before/--after flags, but that should be pretty trivial, and is independent of this anyway. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-03-01Teach git-checkout-index to read filenames from stdin.Shawn Pearce
Since git-checkout-index is often used from scripts which may have a stream of filenames they wish to checkout it is more convenient to use --stdin than xargs. On platforms where fork performance is currently sub-optimal and the length of a command line is limited (*cough* Cygwin *cough*) running a single git-checkout-index process for a large number of files beats spawning it multiple times from xargs. File names are still accepted on the command line if --stdin is not supplied. Nothing is performed if no files are supplied on the command line or by stdin. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

* ml/cvs: Introducing git-cvsserver -- a CVS emulator for git.
2006-02-23Add new git-rm command with documentationCarl Worth
This adds a git-rm command which provides convenience similar to git-add, (and a bit more since it takes care of the rm as well if given -f). Like git-add, git-rm expands the given path names through git-ls-files. This means it only acts on files listed in the index. And it does act recursively on directories by default, (no -r needed as in the case of rm itself). When it recurses, it does not remove empty directories that are left behind.

2006-02-22Introducing git-cvsserver -- a CVS emulator for git.Martin Langhoff
git-cvsserver is highly functional. However, not all methods are implemented, and for those methods that are implemented, not all switches are implemented. All the common read operations are implemented, and add/remove/commit are supported. Testing has been done using both the CLI CVS client, and the Eclipse CVS plugin. Most functionality works fine with both of these clients. Currently git-cvsserver only works over SSH connections, see the Documentation for more details on how to configure your client. It does not support pserver for anonymous access but it should not be hard to implement. Anonymous access will need tighter input validation. In our very informal tests, it seems to be significantly faster than a real CVS server. This utility depends on a version of git-cvsannotate that supports -S and on DBD::SQLite. Licensed under GPLv2.

2006-02-22git-push: Update documentation to describe the no-refspec behavior.Carl Worth
It turns out that the git-push documentation didn't describe what it would do when not given a refspec, (not on the command line, nor in a remotes file). This is fairly important for the user who is trying to understand operations such as: git clone git://something/some/where # hack, hack, hack git push origin I tracked the mystery behavior down to git-send-pack and lifted the relevant portion of its documentation up to git-push, (namely that all refs existing both locally and remotely are updated).

2006-02-17git-repack: allow passing a couple of flags to pack-objects.Junio C Hamano

2006-02-17pack-objects: finishing touches.Junio C Hamano
This introduces --no-reuse-delta option to disable reusing of existing delta, which is a large part of the optimization introduced by this series. This may become necessary if repeated repacking makes delta chain too long. With this, the output of the command becomes identical to that of the older implementation. But the performance suffers greatly. It still allows reusing non-deltified representations; there is no point uncompressing and recompressing the whole text. It also adds a couple more statistics output, while squelching it under -q flag, which the last round forgot to do. $ time old-git-pack-objects --stdout >/dev/null <RL Generating pack...

It can create delta chains that are deeper than specified. A<--B<--C<--D E F G Suppose we have a delta chain A to D (A is stored in full either in a pack or as a loose object. B is depth1 delta relative to A, C is depth2 delta relative to B...) with loose objects E, F, G. And we are going to pack all of them. B, C and D are left as delta against A, B and C respectively. So A, E, F, and G are examined for deltification, and let's say we decided to keep E expanded, and store the rest as deltas like this: E<--F<--G<--A Oops. We ended up making D a bit too deep, didn't we? B, C and D form a chain on top of A! This is because we did not know what the final depth of A would be, when we checked objects and decided to keep the existing delta. Unfortunately, deferring the decision until just before the deltification is not an option. To be able to make B, C, and D candidates for deltification with the rest, we need to know the type and final unexpanded size of them, but the major part of the optimization comes from the fact that we do not read the delta data to do so -- getting the final size is quite an expensive operation. To prevent this from happening, we should keep A from being deltified. But how would we tell that, cheaply? To do this most precisely, after check_object() runs, each object that is used as the base object of some existing delta needs to be marked with the maximum depth of the objects we decided to keep deltified (in this case, D is depth 3 relative to A, so if no other delta chain that is longer than 3 based on A exists, mark A with 3). Then when attempting to deltify A, we would take that number into account to see if the final delta chain that leads to D becomes too deep. However, this is a bit cumbersome to compute, so we would cheat and reduce the maximum depth for A arbitrarily to depth/4 in this implementation. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
