2011-11-15Revert "upload-archive: use start_command instead of fork"Junio C Hamano
This reverts commit c09cd77ea2fe3580b33918a99fe138d239ac2aaf, expecting a better version to be rerolled soon.
2011-10-31upload-archive: use start_command instead of forkErik Faye-Lund
The POSIX-function fork is not supported on Windows. Use our start_command API instead. As this is the last call-site that depends on the fork-stub in compat/mingw.h, remove that as well. Add an undocumented flag to git-archive that tells it that the action originated from a remote, so features can be disabled. Thanks to Jeff King for work on this part. Remove the NOT_MINGW-prereq for t5000, as git-archive --remote now works. Signed-off-by: Erik Faye-Lund <> Helped-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

* il/archive-err-signal: Support ERR in remote archive like in fetch/push
2011-10-05Support ERR in remote archive like in fetch/pushIlari Liusvaara
Make ERR as first packet of remote snapshot reply work like it does in fetch/push. Lets servers decline remote snapshot with message the same way as declining fetch/push with a message. Signed-off-by: Ilari Liusvaara <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2011-06-22upload-archive: allow user to turn off filtersJeff King
Some tar filters may be very expensive to run, so sites do not want to expose them via upload-archive. This patch lets users configure tar.<filter>.remote to turn them off. By default, gzip filters are left on, as they are about as expensive as creating zip archives. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2011-06-22archive: move file extension format-guessing lowerJeff King
The process for guessing an archive output format based on the filename is something like this: a. parse --output in cmd_archive; check the filename against a static set of mapping heuristics (right now it just matches ".zip" for zip files). b. if found, stick a fake "--format=zip" at the beginning of the arguments list (if the user did specify a --format manually, the later option will override our fake one) c. if it's a remote call, ship the arguments to the remote (including the fake), which will call write_archive on their end d. if it's local, ship the arguments to write_archive locally There are two problems: 1. The set of mappings is static and at too high a level. The write_archive level is going to check config for user-defined formats, some of which will specify extensions. We need to delay lookup until those are parsed, so we can match against them. 2. For a remote archive call, our set of mappings (or formats) may not match the remote side's. This is OK in practice right now, because all versions of git understand "zip" and "tar". But as new formats are added, there is going to be a mismatch between what the client can do and what the remote server can do. To fix (1), this patch refactors the location guessing to happen at the write_archive level, instead of the cmd_archive level. So instead of sticking a fake --format field in the argv list, we actually pass a "name hint" down the callchain; this hint is used at the appropriate time to guess the format (if one hasn't been given already). This patch leaves (2) unfixed. The name_hint is converted to a "--format" option as before, and passed to the remote. This means the local side's idea of how extensions map to formats will take precedence. Another option would be to pass the name hint to the remote side and let the remote choose. This isn't a good idea for two reasons: 1. There's no room in the protocol for passing that information. We can pass a new argument, but older versions of git on the server will choke on it. 2. Letting the remote side decide creates a silent inconsistency in user experience. Consider the case that the locally installed git knows about the "tar.gz" format, but a remote server doesn't. Running "git archive -o foo.tar.gz" will use the tar.gz format. If we use --remote, and the local side chooses the format, then we send "--format=tar.gz" to the remote, which will complain about the unknown format. But if we let the remote side choose the format, then it will realize that it doesn't know about "tar.gz" and output uncompressed tar without even issuing a warning.

2010-02-22Move 'builtin-*' into a 'builtin/' subdirectoryLinus Torvalds
This shrinks the top-level directory a bit, and makes it much more pleasant to use auto-completion on the thing. Instead of [torvalds@nehalem git]$ em buil<tab> Display all 180 possibilities? (y or n) [torvalds@nehalem git]$ em builtin-sh builtin-shortlog.c builtin-show-branch.c builtin-show-ref.c builtin-shortlog.o builtin-show-branch.o builtin-show-ref.o [torvalds@nehalem git]$ em builtin-shor<tab> builtin-shortlog.c builtin-shortlog.o [torvalds@nehalem git]$ em builtin-shortlog.c you get [torvalds@nehalem git]$ em buil<tab> [type] builtin/ builtin.h [torvalds@nehalem git]$ em builtin [auto-completes to] [torvalds@nehalem git]$ em builtin/sh<tab> [type] shortlog.c shortlog.o show-branch.c show-branch.o show-ref.c show-ref.o [torvalds@nehalem git]$ em builtin/sho [auto-completes to] [torvalds@nehalem git]$ em builtin/shor<tab> [type] shortlog.c shortlog.o [torvalds@nehalem git]$ em builtin/shortlog.c which doesn't seem all that different, but not having that annoying break in "Display all 180 possibilities?" is quite a relief. NOTE! If you do this in a clean tree (no object files etc), or using an editor that has auto-completion rules that ignores '*.o' files, you won't see that annoying 'Display all 180 possibilities?' message - it will just show the choices instead. I think bash has some cut-off around 100 choices or something. So the reason I see this is that I'm using an odd editory, and thus don't have the rules to cut down on auto-completion. But you can simulate that by using 'ls' instead, or something similar. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
