2005-07-15[PATCH] Documentation: pull, push, packing repository and working with others.Junio C Hamano
Describe where you can pull from with a bit more detail. Clarify description of pushing. Add a section on packing repositories. Add a section on recommended workflow for the project lead, subsystem maintainers and individual developers. Move "Tag" section around to make the flow of example simpler to follow.

2005-07-15[PATCH] Add git-var a tool for reading interesting git variables.Eric W. Biederman
Sharing code between shell scripts and C is a challenge. The program git-var allows us to have a set of named values that a shell script can interrogate and a normal C program can simply call the functions that compute them. Allowing sharing when computing plain test values. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2005-07-14[PATCH] clone-pack and clone-script: documentation and add a missing parameter.Junio C Hamano
While adding the documentation for these two commands, I noticed that the name of the program on the other end (git-upload-pack) is already almost configurable but git-clone-pack lacked command line parameter parsing to actually use anything but default, so I introduced --exec= like other remote commands while I was at it.

Add notes on branches, merging, tagging, and update some of the usage to the friendlier "git cmd" syntax. It's still ridiculously lacking, but perhaps it's a _bit_ more useful.
2005-07-09[PATCH] Add --info-only option to git-update-cache.Bryan Larsen

If we're inside a checked out CVS repository, there is no need to explicitly specify the module as it is available in CVS/Repository. Also read CVS/Root if it's available and -d is not specified.

2005-06-29[PATCH] Add git-verify-pack command.Junio C Hamano
Given a list of <pack>.idx files, this command validates the index file and the corresponding .pack file for consistency. This patch also uses the same validation mechanism in fsck-cache when the --full flag is used. During normal operation, sha1_file.c verifies that a given .idx file matches the .pack file by comparing the SHA1 checksum stored in .idx file and .pack file as a minimum sanity check. We may further want to check the pack signature and version when we map the pack, but that would be a separate patch. Earlier, errors to map a pack file was not flagged fatal but led to a random fatal error later. This version explicitly die()s when such an error is detected.

2005-06-28[PATCH] Update fsck-cache (take 2)Junio C Hamano
The fsck-cache complains if objects referred to by files in .git/refs/ or objects stored in files under .git/objects/??/ are not found as stand-alone SHA1 files (i.e. found in alternate object pools GIT_ALTERNATE_OBJECT_DIRECTORIES or packed archives stored under .git/objects/pack). Although this is a good semantics to maintain consistency of a single .git/objects directory as a self contained set of objects, it sometimes is useful to consider it is OK as long as these "outside" objects are available. This commit introduces a new flag, --standalone, to git-fsck-cache. When it is not specified, connectivity checks and .git/refs pointer checks are taught that it is OK when expected objects do not exist under .git/objects/?? hierarchy but are available from an packed archive or in an alternate object pool. Another new flag, --full, makes git-fsck-cache to check not only the current GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY but also objects found in alternate object pools and packed GIT archives.a Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2005-06-28[PATCH] git-cat-file: '-s' to find out object size.Junio C Hamano
We use sha1_object_info() now, and getting size is also trivial. I admit that this is more of "because we can" not "because I see immediate need for it", though. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-06-27[PATCH] Remove "delta" object representation.Junio C Hamano
Packed delta files created by git-pack-objects seems to be the way to go, and existing "delta" object handling code has exposed the object representation details to too many places.

2005-06-20[PATCH] Rework -B output.Junio C Hamano
Patch for a completely rewritten file detected by the -B flag was shown as a pair of creation followed by deletion in earlier versions. This was an misguided attempt to make reviewing such a complete rewrite easier, and unnecessarily ended up confusing git-apply. Instead, show the entire contents of old version prefixed with '-', followed by the entire contents of new version prefixed with '+'. This gives the same easy-to-review for human consumer while keeping it a single, regular modification patch for machine consumption, something that even GNU patch can grok.

2005-06-08[PATCH] Tidy up some rev-list-related stuffPetr Baudis
This patch tidies up the git-rev-list documentation and epoch.c, which are in severe clash with the unwritten coding style now, and quite unreadable. It also fixes up compile failures with older compilers due to variable declarations after code. The patch mostly wraps lines before or on the 80th column, removes plenty of superfluous empty lines and changes comments from // to /* */.

2005-06-07[PATCH] Document git-ssh-pull and git-ssh-pushDaniel Barkalow
This fixes the documentation for git-ssh-push, as called by users (if you run git-ssh-pull or git-ssh-push on one machine, the other runs on the other machine, and they transfer data in the specified direction). This also adds documentation for the -w option and for using filenames for the commit-id (which does what you'd want: uses the source side's value, not the value already on the target, even if you're running it on the target). It also credits me with the programs and the documentation for git-ssh-push. Someone who knows asciidoc should make sure I didn't mess up the formatting. I'm only sure of the ascii part.

2005-06-06[PATCH] Modify git-rev-list to linearise the commit history in merge order.jon@blackcubes.dyndns.org
This patch linearises the GIT commit history graph into merge order which is defined by invariants specified in Documentation/git-rev-list.txt. The linearisation produced by this patch is superior in an objective sense to that produced by the existing git-rev-list implementation in that the linearisation produced is guaranteed to have the minimum number of discontinuities, where a discontinuity is defined as an adjacent pair of commits in the output list which are not related in a direct child-parent relationship. With this patch a graph like this: a4 --- | \ \ | b4 | |/ | | a3 | | | | | a2 | | | | c3 | | | | | c2 | b3 | | | /| | b2 | | | c1 | | / | b1 a1 | | | a0 | | / root Sorts like this: = a4 | c3 | c2 | c1 ^ b4 | b3 | b2 | b1 ^ a3 | a2 | a1 | a0 = root Instead of this: = a4 | c3 ^ b4 | a3 ^ c2 ^ b3 ^ a2 ^ b2 ^ c1 ^ a1 ^ b1 ^ a0 = root A test script, t/t6000-rev-list.sh, includes a test which demonstrates that the linearisation produced by --merge-order has less discontinuities than the linearisation produced by git-rev-list without the --merge-order flag specified. To see this, do the following: cd t ./t6000-rev-list.sh cd trash cat actual-default-order cat actual-merge-order The existing behaviour of git-rev-list is preserved, by default. To obtain the modified behaviour, specify --merge-order or --merge-order --show-breaks on the command line. This version of the patch has been tested on the git repository and also on the linux-2.6 repository and has reasonable performance on both - ~50-100% slower than the original algorithm. This version of the patch has incorporated a functional equivalent of the Linus' output limiting algorithm into the merge-order algorithm itself. This operates per the notes associated with Linus' commit 337cb3fb8da45f10fe9a0c3cf571600f55ead2ce. This version has incorporated Linus' feedback regarding proposed changes to rev-list.c. (see: [PATCH] Factor out filtering in rev-list.c) This version has improved the way sort_first_epoch marks commits as uninteresting. For more details about this change, refer to Documentation/git-rev-list.txt and http://blackcubes.dyndns.org/epoch/.
