2021-09-03update-ref: fix streaming of status updatesPatrick Steinhardt
When executing git-update-ref(1) with the `--stdin` flag, then the user can queue updates and, since e48cf33b61 (update-ref: implement interactive transaction handling, 2020-04-02), interactively drive the transaction's state via a set of transactional verbs. This interactivity is somewhat broken though: while the caller can use these verbs to drive the transaction's state, the status messages which confirm that a verb has been processed is not flushed. The caller may thus be left hanging waiting for the acknowledgement. Fix the bug by flushing stdout after writing the status update. Add a test which catches this bug.

2020-11-16update-ref: disallow "start" for ongoing transactionsPatrick Steinhardt
It is currently possible to write multiple "start" commands into git-update-ref(1) for a single session, but none of them except for the first one actually have any effect. Using such nested "start"s may eventually have a sensible effect. One may imagine that it restarts the current transaction, effectively emptying it and creating a new one. It may also allow for creation of nested transactions. But currently, none of these are implemented. Silently ignoring this misuse is making it hard to iterate in the future if "start" is ever going to have meaningful semantics in such a context. This commit thus makes sure to error out in case we see such use.

2020-11-16update-ref: allow creation of multiple transactionsPatrick Steinhardt
While git-update-ref has recently grown commands which allow interactive control of transactions in e48cf33b61 (update-ref: implement interactive transaction handling, 2020-04-02), it is not yet possible to create multiple transactions in a single session. To do so, one currently still needs to invoke the executable multiple times. This commit addresses this shortcoming by allowing the "start" command to create a new transaction if the current transaction has already been either committed or aborted.

2020-04-02update-ref: implement interactive transaction handlingPatrick Steinhardt
The git-update-ref(1) command can only handle queueing transactions right now via its "--stdin" parameter, but there is no way for users to handle the transaction itself in a more explicit way. E.g. in a replicated scenario, one may imagine a coordinator that spawns git-update-ref(1) for multiple repositories and only if all agree that an update is possible will the coordinator send a commit. Such a transactional session could look like > start < start: ok > update refs/heads/master $OLD $NEW > prepare < prepare: ok # All nodes have returned "ok" > commit < commit: ok or > start < start: ok > create refs/heads/master $OLD $NEW > prepare < fatal: cannot lock ref 'refs/heads/master': reference already exists # On all other nodes: > abort < abort: ok In order to allow for such transactional sessions, this commit introduces four new commands for git-update-ref(1), which matches those we have internally already with the exception of "start": - start: start a new transaction - prepare: prepare the transaction, that is try to lock all references and verify their current value matches the expected one - commit: explicitly commit a session, that is update references to match their new expected state - abort: abort a session and roll back all changes By design, git-update-ref(1) will commit as soon as standard input is being closed. While fine in a non-transactional world, it is definitely unexpected in a transactional world. Because of this, as soon as any of the new transactional commands is used, the default will change to aborting without an explicit "commit". To avoid a race between queueing updates and the first "prepare" that starts a transaction, the "start" command has been added to start an explicit transaction. Add some tests to exercise this new functionality. Signed-off-by: Patrick Steinhardt <ps@pks.im> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2020-04-02update-ref: read commands in a line-wise fashionPatrick Steinhardt
The git-update-ref(1) supports a `--stdin` mode that allows it to read all reference updates from standard input. This is mainly used to allow for atomic reference updates that are all or nothing, so that either all references will get updated or none. Currently, git-update-ref(1) reads all commands as a single block of up to 1000 characters and only starts processing after stdin gets closed. This is less flexible than one might wish for, as it doesn't really allow for longer-lived transactions and doesn't allow any verification without committing everything. E.g. one may imagine the following exchange: > start < start: ok > update refs/heads/master $NEWOID1 $OLDOID1 > update refs/heads/branch $NEWOID2 $OLDOID2 > prepare < prepare: ok > commit < commit: ok When reading all input as a whole block, the above interactive protocol is obviously impossible to achieve. But by converting the command to read commands linewise, we can make it more interactive than before. Obviously, the linewise interface is only a first step in making git-update-ref(1) work in a more transaction-oriented way. Missing is most importantly support for transactional commands that manage the current transaction. Signed-off-by: Patrick Steinhardt <ps@pks.im> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2020-04-02update-ref: move transaction handling into `update_refs_stdin()`Patrick Steinhardt
While the actual logic to update the transaction is handled in `update_refs_stdin()`, the transaction itself is started and committed in `cmd_update_ref()` itself. This makes it hard to handle transaction abortion and commits as part of `update_refs_stdin()` itself, which is required in order to introduce transaction handling features to `git update-refs --stdin`. Refactor the code to move all transaction handling into `update_refs_stdin()` to prepare for transaction handling features.

2020-04-02update-ref: pass end pointer instead of strbufPatrick Steinhardt
We currently pass both an `strbuf` containing the current command line as well as the `next` pointer pointing to the first argument to commands.

2020-04-02update-ref: organize commands in an arrayPatrick Steinhardt
We currently manually wire up all commands known to `git-update-ref --stdin`, making it harder than necessary to preprocess arguments after the command is determined. To make this more extensible, let's refactor the code to use an array of known commands instead. While this doesn't add a lot of value now, it is a preparatory step to implement line-wise reading of commands. As we're going to introduce commands without trailing spaces, this commit also moves whitespace parsing into the respective commands.

2018-09-12update-ref: allow --no-deref with --stdinElijah Newren
If passed both --no-deref and --stdin, update-ref would error out with a general usage message that did not at all suggest these options were incompatible. The manpage for update-ref did suggest through its synopsis line that --no-deref and --stdin were incompatible, but it sadly also incorrectly suggested that -d and --no-deref were incompatible. So the help around the --no-deref option is buggy in a few ways. The --stdin option did provide a different mechanism for avoiding dereferencing symbolic-refs: adding a line reading option no-deref before every other directive in the input. (Technically, if the user wants to do the extra work of first determining which refs they want to update or delete are symbolic, then they only need to put the extra "option no-deref" lines before the updates of those refs. But in some cases, that's more work than just adding the "option no-deref" before every other directive.) It's easier to allow the user to just pass --no-deref along with --stdin in order to tell update-ref that the user doesn't want any symbolic ref to be dereferenced. It also makes the update-ref documentation simpler. Implement that, and update the documentation to match.

2017-02-21delete_ref: accept a reflog message argumentKyle Meyer
When the current branch is renamed with 'git branch -m/-M' or deleted with 'git update-ref -m<msg> -d', the event is recorded in HEAD's log with an empty message. In preparation for adding a more meaningful message to HEAD's log in these cases, update delete_ref() to take a message argument and pass it along to ref_transaction_delete(). Modify all callers to pass NULL for the new message argument; no change in behavior is intended. Note that this is relevant for HEAD's log but not for the deleted ref's log, which is currently deleted along with the ref. Even if it were not, an entry for the deletion wouldn't be present in the deleted ref's log. files_transaction_commit() writes to the log if REF_NEEDS_COMMIT or REF_LOG_ONLY are set, but lock_ref_for_update() doesn't set REF_NEEDS_COMMIT for the deleted ref because REF_DELETING is set. In contrast, the update for HEAD has REF_LOG_ONLY set by split_head_update(), resulting in the deletion being logged.

Allow the creation of a ref (e.g. stash) with a reflog already in place. For most refs (e.g. those under refs/heads), this happens automatically, but for others, we need this option. Currently, git does this by pre-creating the reflog, but alternate ref backends might store reflogs somewhere other than .git/logs. Code that now directly manipulates .git/logs should instead use git plumbing commands. I also added --create-reflog to git tag, just for completeness.

2015-06-22delete_ref(): use the usual convention for old_sha1Michael Haggerty
The ref_transaction_update() family of functions use the following convention for their old_sha1 parameters: * old_sha1 == NULL: Don't check the old value at all. * is_null_sha1(old_sha1): Ensure that the reference didn't exist before the transaction. * otherwise: Ensure that the reference had the specified value before the transaction. delete_ref() had a different convention, namely treating is_null_sha1(old_sha1) as "don't care". Change it to adhere to the standard convention to reduce the scope for confusion. Please note that it is now a bug to pass old_sha1=NULL_SHA1 to delete_ref() (because it doesn't make sense to delete a reference that you already know doesn't exist). This is consistent with the behavior of ref_transaction_delete(). Most of the callers of delete_ref() never pass old_sha1=NULL_SHA1 to delete_ref(), and are therefore unaffected by this change. The two exceptions are: * The call in cmd_update_ref(), which passed NULL_SHA1 if the old value passed in on the command line was 0{40} or the empty string. Change that caller to pass NULL in those cases. Arguably, it should be an error to call "update-ref -d" with the old value set to "does not exist", just as it is for the `--stdin` command "delete". But since this usage was accepted until now, continue to accept it. * The call in delete_branches(), which could pass NULL_SHA1 if deleting a broken or symbolic ref. Change it to pass NULL in these cases. Signed-off-by: Michael Haggerty <mhagger@alum.mit.edu> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>

2014-12-11update-ref: fix "verify" command with missing <oldvalue>Michael Haggerty
If "git update-ref --stdin" was given a "verify" command with no "<newvalue>" at all (not even zeros), the code was mistakenly setting have_old=0 (and leaving old_sha1 uninitialized). But this is incorrect: this command is supposed to verify that the reference doesn't exist. So in this case we really need old_sha1 to be set to null_sha1 and have_old to be set to 1. Moreover, since have_old was being set to zero, *no* check of the old value was being done, so the new value of the reference was being set unconditionally to the value in new_sha1. new_sha1, in turn, was set to null_sha1 in the expectation that that was the old value and it shouldn't be changed. But because the precondition was not being checked, the result was that the reference was being deleted unconditionally. So, if <oldvalue> is missing, set have_old unconditionally and set old_sha1 to null_sha1.

Distinguish this error from the error that an argument is missing for another reason. Update the tests accordingly. Signed-off-by: Michael Haggerty <mhagger@alum.mit.edu> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2014-04-07update-ref --stdin -z: deprecate interpreting the empty string as zerosMichael Haggerty
In the original version of this command, for the single case of the "update" command's <newvalue>, the empty string was interpreted as being equivalent to 40 "0"s. This shorthand is unnecessary (binary input will usually be generated programmatically anyway), and it complicates the parser and the documentation. So gently deprecate this usage: remove its description from the documentation and emit a warning if it is found. But for reasons of backwards compatibility, continue to accept it.

2014-04-07update-ref.c: extract a new function, parse_next_sha1()Michael Haggerty
Replace three functions, update_store_new_sha1(), update_store_old_sha1(), and parse_next_arg(), with a single function, parse_next_sha1(). The new function takes care of a whole argument, including checking whether it is there, converting it to an SHA-1, and emitting errors on EOF or for invalid values. The return value indicates whether the argument was present or absent, which requires a bit of intelligence because absent values are represented differently depending on whether "-z" was used. The new interface means that the calling functions, parse_cmd_*(), don't have to interpret the result differently based on the line_termination mode that is in effect. It also means that parse_cmd_create() can distinguish unambiguously between an empty new value and a zeros new value, which fixes a failure in t1400.

2014-04-07update-ref --stdin: simplify error messages for missing oldvaluesMichael Haggerty
Instead of, for example, fatal: update refs/heads/master missing [<oldvalue>] NUL emit fatal: update refs/heads/master missing <oldvalue> Update the tests accordingly. Signed-off-by: Michael Haggerty <mhagger@alum.mit.edu> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2014-04-07update-ref --stdin: make error messages more consistentMichael Haggerty
The old error messages emitted for invalid input sometimes said "<oldvalue>"/"<newvalue>" and sometimes said "old value"/"new value". Convert them all to the former. Update the tests accordingly. Signed-off-by: Michael Haggerty <mhagger@alum.mit.edu> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
