2021-01-12shortlog: remove unused(?) "repo-abbrev" featureÆvar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Remove support for the magical "repo-abbrev" comment in .mailmap files. This was added to .mailmap parsing in [1], as a generalized feature of the git-shortlog Perl script added earlier in [2]. There was no documentation or tests for this feature, and I don't think it's used in practice anymore. What it did was to allow you to specify a single string to be search-replaced with "/.../" in the .mailmap file. E.g. for linux.git's current .mailmap: git archive \ HEAD -- .mailmap | grep -a repo-abbrev # repo-abbrev: /pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ Then when running e.g.: git shortlog --merges --author=Linus -1 v5.10-rc7..v5.10 | grep Merge We'd emit (the [...] is mine): Merge tag [...]git:// But will now emit: Merge tag [...] I think at this point this is just a historical artifact we can get rid of. It was initially meant for Linus's own use when we integrated the Perl script[2], but since then it seems he's stopped using it. Digging through Linus's release announcements on the LKML[3] the last release I can find that made use of this output is Linux 2.6.25-rc6 back in March 2008[4]. Later on Linus started using --no-merges[5], and nowadays seems to prefer some custom not-quite-shortlog format of merges from lieutenants[6]. You will still see it on linux.git if you run "git shortlog" manually yourself with --merges, with this removed you can still get the same output with: git log --pretty=fuller v5.10-rc7..v5.10 | sed 's!/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/!/.../!g' | git shortlog Arguably we should do the same for the search-replacing of "[PATCH]" at the beginning with "". That seems to be another relic of a bygone era when linux.git patches would have their E-Mail subject lines applied as-is by "git am" or whatever. But we documented that feature in "git-shortlog(1)", and it seems more widely applicable than something purely kernel-specific. 1. 7595e2ee6ef (git-shortlog: make common repository prefix configurable with .mailmap, 2006-11-25) 2. fa375c7f1b6 (Add git-shortlog perl script, 2005-06-04) 3. 4. 5. 6.

Stop including config.h by default in cache.h. Instead only include config.h in those files which require use of the config system. Signed-off-by: Brandon Williams <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2016-01-15strbuf: introduce strbuf_getline_{lf,nul}()Junio C Hamano
The strbuf_getline() interface allows a byte other than LF or NUL as the line terminator, but this is only because I wrote these codepaths anticipating that there might be a value other than NUL and LF that could be useful when I introduced line_termination long time ago. No useful caller that uses other value has emerged. By now, it is clear that the interface is overly broad without a good reason. Many codepaths have hardcoded preference to read either LF terminated or NUL terminated records from their input, and then call strbuf_getline() with LF or NUL as the third parameter. This step introduces two thin wrappers around strbuf_getline(), namely, strbuf_getline_lf() and strbuf_getline_nul(), and mechanically rewrites these call sites to call either one of them. The changes contained in this patch are: * introduction of these two functions in strbuf.[ch] * mechanical conversion of all callers to strbuf_getline() with either '\n' or '\0' as the third parameter to instead call the respective thin wrapper. After this step, output from "git grep 'strbuf_getline('" would become a lot smaller. An interim goal of this series is to make this an empty set, so that we can have strbuf_getline_crlf() take over the shorter name strbuf_getline(). Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2015-01-14standardize usage info string formatAlex Henrie
This patch puts the usage info strings that were not already in docopt- like format into docopt-like format, which will be a litle easier for end users and a lot easier for translators. Changes include: - Placing angle brackets around fill-in-the-blank parameters - Putting dashes in multiword parameter names - Adding spaces to [-f|--foobar] to make [-f | --foobar] - Replacing <foobar>* with [<foobar>...] Signed-off-by: Alex Henrie <> Reviewed-by: Matthieu Moy <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2013-07-13builtin: add git-check-mailmap commandEric Sunshine
Introduce command check-mailmap, similar to check-attr and check-ignore, which allows direct testing of .mailmap configuration. As plumbing accessible to scripts and other porcelain, check-mailmap publishes the stable, well-tested .mailmap functionality employed by built-in Git commands. Consequently, script authors need not re-implement .mailmap functionality manually, thus avoiding potential quirks and behavioral differences.
