2007-06-11git-gui: Include 'war on whitespace' fixes from git.gitShawn O. Pearce
Earlier git.git applied a large "war on whitespace" patch that was created using 'apply --whitespace=strip'. Unfortunately a few of git-gui's own files got caught in the mix and were also cleaned up. That was a6080a0a44d5ead84db3dabbbc80e82df838533d. This patch is needed in git-gui.git to reapply those exact same changes here, otherwise our version generator script is unable to obtain our version number from git-describe when we are hosted in the git.git repository.

2007-02-14git-gui: Prefer version file over git-describe.Shawn O. Pearce
Some distributions are using Git for part of their package management system, but unpack Git's own source code for delivery from the .tar.gz. This means that when we walk up the directory tree with git-describe to locate a Git repository, the repository we find is for the distribution and *not* for git-gui. Consequently any tag we might find there is bogus and does not apply to us. In this case the version file should always exist and be readable, as the packager is working from the released .tar.gz sources. So we should always favor the version file over anything git-describe guess for us. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>

2007-02-12git-gui: Change base version to 0.6.gitgui-0.6.0Shawn O. Pearce
This is the start of the 0.6 series of git-gui. I'm calling it 0.6 (rather than any other value) as I already had a private tag on one system based on 0.5, and that tag is quite a bit behind this version. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
2007-02-12git-gui: Guess our version accurately as a subproject.Shawn O. Pearce
When we are included as a subproject, such as how git.git carries us, we want to retain our own version number and not the version number assigned by git.git's own tags. Consequently we need to locate the correct tag which applies to our tree content and its commit lineage. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
2007-02-12git-gui: Handle gitgui tags in version gen.Shawn O. Pearce
I've decided to use gitgui-0.5 as the format for tags in the git-gui repository. The prefix of gitgui was chosen here to make its namespace different from the namespace used by git itself, allowing developers to pull both tag namespaces into the same repository. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
2007-02-12git-gui: Rename GIT_VERSION to GITGUI_VERSION.Shawn O. Pearce
Now that the decision has been made to treat git-gui as a subproject, rather than merging it directly into git, we should use a different substitution for our version value to avoid any possible confusion. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
2007-01-21git-gui: Ensure version number is always current.Shawn O. Pearce
I'm stealing the exact logic used by core Git within its own Makefile to setup the version number within scripts and executables. This way we can be sure that the version number is always updated after a commit, and that the version number also reflects when it is coming from a dirty working directory (and is thus pretty worthless). I've cleaned up some of the version display code in the about dialog too. There were simply too many blank lines in the bottom section where we showed the version data. Signed-off-by: Shawn O.
