2017-03-30name-rev: replace static buffer with strbufJeff King
When name-rev needs to format an actual name, we do so into a fixed-size buffer. That includes the actual ref tip, as well as any traversal information. Since refs can exceed 1024 bytes, this means you can get a bogus result. E.g., doing: git tag $(perl -e 'print join("/", 1..1024)') git describe --contains HEAD^ results in ".../282/283", when it should be ".../1023/1024~1". We can solve this by using a heap buffer. We'll use a strbuf, which lets us write into the same buffer from our loop without having to reallocate. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <>
2017-01-24name-rev: add support to exclude refs by pattern matchJacob Keller
Extend git-name-rev to support excluding refs which match shell patterns using --exclude. These patterns can be used to limit the scope of refs by excluding any ref that matches one of the --exclude patterns. A ref will only be used for naming when it matches at least one --refs pattern but does not match any of the --exclude patterns. Thus, --exclude patterns are given precedence over --refs patterns. For example, suppose you wish to name a series of commits based on an official release tag of the form "v*" but excluding any pre-release tags which match "*rc*". You can use the following to do so: git name-rev --refs="v*" --exclude="*rc*" --all Add tests and update Documentation for this change. Signed-off-by: Jacob Keller <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2017-01-24name-rev: extend --refs to accept multiple patternsJacob Keller
Teach git name-rev to take multiple --refs stored as a string list of patterns. The list of patterns will be matched inclusively, and each ref only needs to match one pattern to be included. A ref will only be excluded if it does not match any of the given patterns. Additionally, if any of the patterns would allow abbreviation, then we will abbreviate the ref, even if another pattern is more strict and would not have allowed abbreviation on its own. Add tests and documentation for this change. The tests expected output is dynamically generated. This is in order to avoid hard-coding a commit object name in the test results (as the expected output is to simply leave the commit object unnamed).

2016-05-03Merge branch 'js/name-rev-use-oldest-ref'Junio C Hamano
"git describe --contains" often made a hard-to-justify choice of tag to give name to a given commit, because it tried to come up with a name with smallest number of hops from a tag, causing an old commit whose close descendant that is recently tagged were not described with respect to an old tag but with a newer tag. It did not help that its computation of "hop" count was further tweaked to penalize being on a side branch of a merge. The logic has been updated to favor using the tag with the oldest tagger date, which is a lot easier to explain to the end users: "We describe a commit in terms of the (chronologically) oldest tag that contains the commit." * js/name-rev-use-oldest-ref: name-rev: include taggerdate in considering the best name
2016-04-22name-rev: include taggerdate in considering the best nameJohannes Schindelin
We most likely want the oldest tag that contained the commit to be reported. So let's remember the taggerdate, and make it more important than anything else when choosing the best name for a given commit. Suggested by Linus Torvalds. Note that we need to update t9903 because it tested for the old behavior (which preferred the description "b1~1" over "tags/t2~1"). We might want to introduce a --heed-taggerdate option, and make the new behavior dependent on that, if it turns out that some scripts rely on the old name-rev method.

2015-09-25replace trivial malloc + sprintf / strcpy calls with xstrfmtJeff King
It's a common pattern to do: foo = xmalloc(strlen(one) + strlen(two) + 1 + 1); sprintf(foo, "%s %s", one, two); (or possibly some variant with strcpy()s or a more complicated length computation). We can switch these to use xstrfmt, which is shorter, involves less error-prone manual computation, and removes many sprintf and strcpy calls which make it harder to audit the code for real buffer overflows.

2015-05-25each_ref_fn: change to take an object_id parameterMichael Haggerty
Change typedef each_ref_fn to take a "const struct object_id *oid" parameter instead of "const unsigned char *sha1". To aid this transition, implement an adapter that can be used to wrap old-style functions matching the old typedef, which is now called "each_ref_sha1_fn"), and make such functions callable via the new interface. This requires the old function and its cb_data to be wrapped in a "struct each_ref_fn_sha1_adapter", and that object to be used as the cb_data for an adapter function, each_ref_fn_adapter(). This is an enormous diff, but most of it consists of simple, mechanical changes to the sites that call any of the "for_each_ref" family of functions. Subsequent to this change, the call sites can be rewritten one by one to use the new interface. Signed-off-by: Michael Haggerty <> Signed-off-by: brian m. carlson <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2014-06-19use xstrfmt to replace xmalloc + strcpy/strcatJeff King
It's easy to get manual allocation calculations wrong, and the use of strcpy/strcat raise red flags for people looking for buffer overflows (though in this case each site was fine). It's also shorter to use xstrfmt, and the printf-format tends to be easier for a reader to see what the final string will look like. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2013-07-18describe: fix --contains when a tag is given as inputJunio C Hamano
"git describe" takes a commit and gives it a name based on tags in its neighbourhood. The command does take a commit-ish but when given a tag that points at a commit, it should dereference the tag before computing the name for the commit. As the whole processing is internally delegated to name-rev, if we unwrap tags down to the underlying commit when invoking name-rev, it will make the name-rev issue an error message based on the unwrapped object name (i.e. either 40-hex object name, or "$tag^0") that is different from what the end-user gave to the command when the commit cannot be described. Introduce an internal option --peel-tag to the name-rev to tell it to unwrap a tag in its input from the command line. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2013-07-18name-rev: differentiate between tags and commits they point atJunio C Hamano
"git name-rev --stdin" has been fixed to convert an object name that points at a tag to a refname of the tag. The codepath to handle its command line arguments, however, fed the commit that the tag points at to the underlying naming machinery. With this fix, you will get this: $ git name-rev --refs=tags/\* --name-only $(git rev-parse v1.8.3 v1.8.3^0) v1.8.3 v1.8.3^0 which is the same as what you would get from the fixed "--stdin" variant: $ git rev-parse v1.8.3 v1.8.3^0 | git name-rev --refs=tags/\* --name-only v1.8.3 v1.8.3^0 Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2013-07-09name-rev: allow converting the exact object name at the tip of a refJunio C Hamano
"git name-rev" is supposed to convert given object names into strings that name the same objects based on refs, that can be fed to "git rev-parse" to get the same object names back, so the output for the commit object v1.8.3^0 (i.e. the commit tagged as v1.8.3) $ git rev-parse v1.8.3 v1.8.3^0 | git name-rev --stdin 8af06057d0c31a24e8737ae846ac2e116e8bafb9 edca4152560522a431a51fc0a06147fc680b5b18 (tags/v1.8.3^0) has to have "^0" at the end, as "edca41" is a commit, not the tag that references it. But we do not get anything for the tag object (8af0605) itself. This is because the command however did not bother to see if the object is at the tip of some ref, and failed to convert a tag object. Teach it to show this instead: $ git rev-parse v1.8.3 v1.8.3^0 | git name-rev --stdin 8af06057d0c31a24e8737ae846ac2e116e8bafb9 (tags/v1.8.3) edca4152560522a431a51fc0a06147fc680b5b18 (tags/v1.8.3^0) Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2013-06-18name-rev: allow to specify a subpath for --refs optionNamhyung Kim
When an user wants to filter specific ref using the --refs option, the pattern needs to match the full ref, e.g. --refs=refs/tags/v1.*. It'd be convenient to specify a subpath of ref pattern. For example, --refs=origin/* can find refs/remotes/origin/master by searching the pattern against its substrings in turn: refs/remotes/origin/master remotes/origin/master origin/master If it finds a match in a subpath, unambigous part of the ref path will be removed in the output.

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?

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 <>
