2008-02-05Fix misuse of prefix_path()Johannes Sixt
When DEFAULT_GIT_TEMPLATE_DIR is specified as a relative path, init-db made it relative to exec_path using prefix_path(), which is wrong. prefix_path() is about a file inside the work tree. There was a similar misuse in config.c that takes relative ETC_GITCONFIG path. Noticed by Junio C Hamano. We concatenate the paths manually. (prefix_filename() won't do because it expects a prefix with a trailing '/'.) Signed-off-by: Johannes Sixt <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

There was a similar misuse in config.c that takes relative ETC_GITCONFIG path. A convenience function prefix_filename() can concatenate two paths to form a path that points at somewhere outside the work tree. Use it in these codepaths instead. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2007-11-14Allow a relative builtin template directory.Johannes Sixt
In order to make git relocatable (i.e. not have the prefix compiled-in) the template directory must depend on the location where this git instance is found, which is GIT_EXEC_DIR. The exec path is prepended only if the compiled-in default template directory is to be used and that is relative. Any relative directories that are specified via environment variable or the --exec-dir switch are taken as is. Signed-off-by: Johannes Sixt <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2007-08-28Fix initialization of a bare repositoryJunio C Hamano
Here is my attempt to fix this with a minimally intrusive patch. * As "git --bare init" cannot tell if it was called with --bare or just "GIT_DIR=. git init", I added an explicit assignment of is_bare_repository_cfg on the codepath for "git --bare". * GIT_WORK_TREE alone without GIT_DIR does not make any sense, nor GIT_WORK_TREE with an explicit "git --bare". Catch that mistake. It might make sense to move this check to "git.c" side as well, but I tried to shoot for the minimum change for now. * Some scripts, especially from the olden days, rely on traditional GIT_DIR behaviour in "git init". Namely, these are some notable patterns: (create a bare repository) - mkdir some.git && cd some.git && GIT_DIR=. git init - mkdir some.git && cd some.git && git --bare init (create a non-bare repository) - mkdir .git && GIT_DIR=.git git init - mkdir .git && GIT_DIR=`pwd`/.git git init This comes with a new test script and also passes the existing test suite, but there may be cases that are still broken with the current tip of master and this patch does not yet fix. I'd appreciate help in straightening this mess out. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2007-08-01Clean up work-tree handlingJohannes Schindelin
The old version of work-tree support was an unholy mess, barely readable, and not to the point. For example, why do you have to provide a worktree, when it is not used? As in "git status". Now it works. Another riddle was: if you can have work trees inside the git dir, why are some programs complaining that they need a work tree? IOW it is allowed to call $ git --git-dir=../ --work-tree=. bla when you really want to. In this case, you are both in the git directory and in the working tree. So, programs have to actually test for the right thing, namely if they are inside a working tree, and not if they are inside a git directory. Also, GIT_DIR=../.git should behave the same as if no GIT_DIR was specified, unless there is a repository in the current working directory. It does now. The logic to determine if a repository is bare, or has a work tree (tertium non datur), is this: --work-tree=bla overrides GIT_WORK_TREE, which overrides core.bare = true, which overrides core.worktree, which overrides GIT_DIR/.. when GIT_DIR ends in /.git, which overrides the directory in which .git/ was found. In related news, a long standing bug was fixed: when in .git/bla/x.git/, which is a bare repository, git formerly assumed ../.. to be the appropriate git dir. This problem was reported by Shawn Pearce to have caused much pain, where a colleague mistakenly ran "git init" in "/" a long time ago, and bare repositories just would not work.

2007-07-04git-init: set core.worktree if GIT_WORK_TREE is specifiedMatthias Lederhofer

2007-02-21Mechanical conversion to use prefixcmp()Junio C Hamano
This mechanically converts strncmp() to use prefixcmp(), but only when the parameters match specific patterns, so that they can be verified easily. Leftover from this will be fixed in a separate step, including idiotic conversions like if (!strncmp("foo", arg, 3)) => if (!(-prefixcmp(arg, "foo"))) This was done by using this script in px.perl #!/usr/bin/perl -i.bak -p if (/strncmp\(([^,]+), "([^\\"]*)", (\d+)\)/ && (length($2) == $3)) { s|strncmp\(([^,]+), "([^\\"]*)", (\d+)\)|prefixcmp($1, "$2")|; } if (/strncmp\("([^\\"]*)", ([^,]+), (\d+)\)/ && (length($1) == $3)) { s|strncmp\("([^\\"]*)", ([^,]+), (\d+)\)|(-prefixcmp($2, "$1"))|; } and running: $ git grep -l strncmp -- '*.c' | xargs perl px.perl Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2007-01-08Introduce is_bare_repository() and core.bare configuration variableJunio C Hamano
This removes the old is_bare_git_dir(const char *) to ask if a directory, if it is a GIT_DIR, is a bare repository, and replaces it with is_bare_repository(void *). The function looks at core.bare configuration variable if exists but uses the old heuristics: if it is ".git" or ends with "/.git", then it does not look like a bare repository, otherwise it does.

2006-12-31Force core.filemode to false on Cygwin.Shawn O. Pearce
Many users have noticed that core.filemode doesn't appear to be automatically set right on Cygwin when using a repository stored on NTFS. The issue is that Cygwin and NTFS correctly supports the executable mode bit, and Git properly detected that, but most native Windows applications tend to create files such that Cygwin sees the executable bit set when it probably shouldn't be. This is especially bad if the user's favorite editor deletes the file then recreates it whenever they save (vs. just overwriting) as now a file that was created with mode 0644 by checkout-index appears to have mode 0755. So we introduce NO_TRUSTABLE_FILEMODE, settable at compile time. Setting this option forces core.filemode to false, even if the detection code would have returned true. This option should be enabled by default on Cygwin. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-12-19Use preprocessor constants for environment variable names.Junio C Hamano
We broke the discipline Linus set up to allow compiler help us avoid typos in environment names in the early days of git over time. This defines a handful preprocessor constants for environment variable names used in relatively core parts of the system. I've left out variable names specific to subsystems such as HTTP and SSL as I do not think they are big problems. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-12-19Introduce GIT_TEMPLATE_DIRJohannes Schindelin

2006-12-16Enable reflogs by default in any repository with a working directory.Shawn O. Pearce
New and experienced Git users alike are finding out too late that they forgot to enable reflogs in the current repository, and cannot use the information stored within it to recover from an incorrectly entered command such as `git reset --hard HEAD^^^` when they really meant HEAD^^ (aka HEAD~2). So enable reflogs by default in all future versions of Git, unless the user specifically disables it with: [core] logAllRefUpdates = false in their .git/config or ~/.gitconfig. We only enable reflogs in repositories that have a working directory associated with them, as shared/bare repositories do not have an easy means to prune away old log entries, or may fail logging entirely if the user's gecos information is not valid during a push. This heuristic was suggested on the mailing list by Junio. Documentation was also updated to indicate the new default behavior. We probably should start to teach usuing the reflog to recover from mistakes in some of the tutorial material, as new users are likely to make a few along the way and will feel better knowing they can recover from them quickly and easily, without fsck-objects' lost+found features.

2006-12-16Provide more meaningful output from 'git init-db'.Shawn O. Pearce
Back in the old days of Git when people messed around with their GIT_DIR environment variable more often it was nice to know whether or not git-init-db created a .git directory or used GIT_DIR. As most users at that time were rather technical UNIXy folk the message "defaulting to local storage area" made sense to some and seemed reasonable. But it doesn't really convey any meaning to the new Git user, as they don't know what a 'local storage area is' nor do they know enough about Git to care. It also really doesn't tell the experienced Git user a whole lot about the command they just ran, especially if they might be reinitializing an existing repository (e.g. to update hooks). So now we print out what we did ("Initialized empty" or "Reinitialized existing"), what type of repository ("" or "shared"), and what location the repository will be in ("$GIT_DIR").

2006-09-20add receive.denyNonFastforwards config variableJohannes Schindelin
If receive.denyNonFastforwards is set to true, git-receive-pack will deny non fast-forwards, i.e. forced updates. Most notably, a push to a repository which has that flag set will fail. As a first user, 'git-init-db --shared' sets this flag, since in a shared setup, you are most unlikely to want forced pushes to succeed.

2006-09-18Make ref resolution sanerLinus Torvalds
The old code used to totally mix up the notion of a ref-name and the path that that ref was associated with. That was not only horribly ugly (a number of users got the path, and then wanted to try to turn it back into a ref-name again), but it fundamnetally doesn't work at all once we do any setup where a ref doesn't have a 1:1 relationship with a particular pathname. This fixes things up so that we use the ref-name throughout, and only turn it into a pathname once we actually look it up in the filesystem. That makes a lot of things much clearer and more straightforward. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2006-06-10shared repository: optionally allow reading to "others".Junio C Hamano
This enhances core.sharedrepository to have additionally specify that read and exec permissions to be given to others as well. It is useful when serving a repository via gitweb and git-daemon that runs as a user outside the project group. The configuration item can take the following values: [core] sharedrepository ; the same as "group" sharedrepository = true ; ditto sharedrepository = 1 ; ditto sharedrepository = group ; allow rwx to group sharedrepository = all ; allow rwx to group, allow rx to other sharedrepository = umask ; not shared - use umask It also extends "git init-db" to take "--shared=all" and friends from the command line.

2006-06-10shared repository - add a few missing calls to adjust_shared_perm().Junio C Hamano
There were a few calls to adjust_shared_perm() that were missing: - init-db creates refs, refs/heads, and refs/tags before reading from templates that could specify sharedrepository in the config file; - updating config file created it under user's umask without adjusting; - updating refs created it under user's umask without adjusting; - switching branches created .git/HEAD under user's umask without adjusting. This moves adjust_shared_perm() from sha1_file.c to path.c, since a few SIMPLE_PROGRAM need to call repository configuration functions which in turn need to call adjust_shared_perm(). sha1_file.c needs to link with SHA1 computation library which is usually not linked to SIMPLE_PROGRAM.
