Corner-case bugfixes for "git fetch" around reflog handling. * jk/fetch-reflog-df-conflict: ignore stale directories when checking reflog existence fetch: load all default config at startup
2014-11-04fetch: load all default config at startupJeff King
When we start the git-fetch program, we call git_config to load all config, but our callback only processes the fetch.prune option; we do not chain to git_default_config at all. This means that we may not load some core configuration which will have an effect. For instance, we do not load core.logAllRefUpdates, which impacts whether or not we create reflogs in a bare repository. Note that I said "may" above. It gets even more exciting. If we have to transfer actual objects as part of the fetch, then we call fetch_pack as part of the same process. That function loads its own config, which does chain to git_default_config, impacting global variables which are used by the rest of fetch. But if the fetch is a pure ref update (e.g., a new ref which is a copy of an old one), we skip fetch_pack entirely. So we get inconsistent results depending on whether or not we have actual objects to transfer or not! Let's just load the core config at the start of fetch, so we know we have it (we may also load it again as part of fetch_pack, but that's OK; it's designed to be idempotent). Our tests check both cases (with and without a pack). We also check similar behavior for push for good measure, but it already works as expected.

Since the introduction of opportunisitic updates of remote-tracking branches, started at around f2690487 (fetch: opportunistically update tracking refs, 2013-05-11) with a few updates in v1.8.4 era, the remote.*.fetch configuration always kicks in even when a refspec to specify what to fetch is given on the command line, and there is no way to disable or override it per-invocation.

2014-01-03fetch --prune: Run prune before fetchingTom Miller
When we have a remote-tracking branch named "frotz/nitfol" from a previous fetch, and the upstream now has a branch named "frotz", fetch would fail to remove "frotz/nitfol" with a "git fetch --prune" from the upstream. git would inform the user to use "git remote prune" to fix the problem. Change the way "fetch --prune" works by moving the pruning operation before the fetching operation. This way, instead of warning the user of a conflict, it autmatically fixes it.

This patch just put together pieces from the 8 steps patch. We stop at step 7 and reject refs that require new shallow commits.

If --no-prune is passed to one of the following commands: git fetch --all git fetch --multiple git fetch --recurse-submodules git remote update then it must also be passed to the "fetch" subprocesses that those commands use to do their work.

2013-10-30fetch --prune: prune only based on explicit refspecsMichael Haggerty
The old behavior of "fetch --prune" was to prune whatever was being fetched. In particular, "fetch --prune --tags" caused tags not only to be fetched, but also to be pruned. This is inappropriate because there is only one tags namespace that is shared among the local repository and all remotes. Therefore, if the user defines a local tag and then runs "git fetch --prune --tags", then the local tag is deleted. Moreover, "--prune" and "--tags" can also be configured via fetch.prune / remote.<name>.prune and remote.<name>.tagopt, making it even less obvious that an invocation of "git fetch" could result in tag lossage. Since the command "git remote update" invokes "git fetch", it had the same problem. The command "git remote prune", on the other hand, disregarded the setting of remote.<name>.tagopt, and so its behavior was inconsistent with that of the other commands. So the old behavior made it too easy to lose tags. To fix this problem, change "fetch --prune" to prune references based only on refspecs specified explicitly by the user, either on the command line or via remote.<name>.fetch. Thus, tags are no longer made subject to pruning by the --tags option or the remote.<name>.tagopt setting. However, tags *are* still subject to pruning if they are fetched as part of a refspec, and that is good. For example: * On the command line, git fetch --prune 'refs/tags/*:refs/tags/*' causes tags, and only tags, to be fetched and pruned, and is therefore a simple way for the user to get the equivalent of the old behavior of "--prune --tag". * For a remote that was configured with the "--mirror" option, the configuration is set to include [remote "name"] fetch = +refs/*:refs/* , which causes tags to be subject to pruning along with all other references. This is the behavior that will typically be desired for a mirror. Signed-off-by: Michael Haggerty <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2013-10-30fetch --tags: fetch tags *in addition to* other stuffMichael Haggerty
Previously, fetch's "--tags" option was considered equivalent to specifying the refspec "refs/tags/*:refs/tags/*" on the command line; in particular, it caused the remote.<name>.refspec configuration to be ignored. But it is not very useful to fetch tags without also fetching other references, whereas it *is* quite useful to be able to fetch tags *in addition to* other references. So change the semantics of this option to do the latter. If a user wants to fetch *only* tags, then it is still possible to specifying an explicit refspec: git fetch <remote> 'refs/tags/*:refs/tags/*' Please note that the documentation prior to was ambiguous about this aspect of "fetch --tags" behavior. Commit f0cb2f137c 2012-12-14 fetch --tags: clarify documentation made the documentation match the old behavior. This commit changes the documentation to match the new behavior.

2013-10-30fetch: only opportunistically update references based on command lineMichael Haggerty
The old code processed (tags == TAGS_SET) before adding the entries used to opportunistically update references mentioned on the command line. The result was that all tags were also considered candidates for opportunistic updating. This is harmless for two reasons: (a) because it would only add entries if there is a configured refspec that covers tags *and* both --tags and another refspec appear on the command-line; (b) because any extra entries would be deleted later by the call to ref_remove_duplicates() anyway. But, to avoid extra work and extra memory usage, and to make the implementation better match the intention, change the algorithm slightly: compute the opportunistic refspecs based only on the command-line arguments, storing the results into a separate temporary list. Then add the tags (which have to come earlier in the list so that they are not de-duped in favor of an opportunistic entry). Then concatenate the temporary list onto the main list. This change will also make later changes easier. Signed-off-by: Michael Haggerty <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2013-08-07fetch: work around "transport-take-over" hackJunio C Hamano
A Git-aware "connect" transport allows the "transport_take_over" to redirect generic transport requests like fetch(), push_refs() and get_refs_list() to the native Git transport handling methods. The take-over process replaces transport->data with a fake data that these method implementations understand. While this hack works OK for a single request, it breaks when the transport needs to make more than one requests. transport->data that used to hold necessary information for the specific helper to work correctly is destroyed during the take-over process. One codepath that this matters is "git fetch" in auto-follow mode; when it does not get all the tags that ought to point at the history it got (which can be determined by looking at the peeled tags in the initial advertisement) from the primary transfer, it internally makes a second request to complete the fetch. Because "take-over" hack has already destroyed the data necessary to talk to the transport helper by the time this happens, the second request cannot make a request to the helper to make another connection to fetch these additional tags. Mark such a transport as "cannot_reuse", and use a separate transport to perform the backfill fetch in order to work around this breakage. Note that this problem does not manifest itself when running t5802, because our upload-pack gives you all the necessary auto-followed tags during the primary transfer. You would need to step through "git fetch" in a debugger, stop immediately after the primary transfer finishes and writes these auto-followed tags, remove the tag references and repack/prune the repository to convince the "find-non-local-tags" procedure that the primary transfer failed to give us all the necessary tags, and then let it continue, in order to trigger the bug in the secondary transfer this patch fixes.

2013-07-18fetch: make --prune configurableMichael Schubert
Without "git fetch --prune", remote-tracking branches for a branch the other side already has removed will stay forever. Some people want to always run "git fetch --prune". To accommodate users who want to either prune always or when fetching from a particular remote, add two new configuration variables "fetch.prune" and "remote.<name>.prune": - "fetch.prune" allows to enable prune for all fetch operations. - "remote.<name>.prune" allows to change the behaviour per remote. The latter will naturally override the former, and the --[no-]prune option from the command line will override the configured default. Since --prune is a potentially destructive operation (Git doesn't keep reflogs for deleted references yet), we don't want to prune without users consent, so this configuration will not be on by default.

2013-05-12fetch: opportunistically update tracking refsJeff King
When we run a regular "git fetch" without arguments, we update the tracking refs according to the configured refspec. However, when we run "git fetch origin master" (or "git pull origin master"), we do not look at the configured refspecs at all, and just update FETCH_HEAD. We miss an opportunity to update "refs/remotes/origin/master" (or whatever the user has configured). Some users find this confusing, because they would want to do further comparisons against the old state of the remote master, like: $ git pull origin master $ git log HEAD...origin/master In the currnet code, they are comparing against whatever commit happened to be in origin/master from the last time they did a complete "git fetch". This patch will update a ref from the RHS of a configured refspec whenever we happen to be fetching its LHS. That makes the case above work. The downside is that any users who really care about whether and when their tracking branches are updated may be surprised. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2013-05-12refactor "ref->merge" flagJeff King
Each "struct ref" has a boolean flag that is set by the fetch code to determine whether the ref should be marked as "not-for-merge" or not when we write it out to FETCH_HEAD. It would be useful to turn this boolean into a tri-state, with the third state meaning "do not bother writing it out to FETCH_HEAD at all". That would let us add extra refs to the set of refs to be stored (e.g., to store copies of things we fetched) without impacting FETCH_HEAD. This patch turns it into an enum that covers the tri-state case, and hopefully makes the code more explicit and easier to read. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
