2007-09-18contrib/fast-import: add perl version of simple exampleJeff King
This is based on the script, but is a little more robust and efficient. More importantly, it should serve as a quick template for interfacing fast-import with perl scripts. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2007-09-18contrib/fast-import: add simple shell exampleNguyen Thai Ngoc Duy
This example just puts a directory under git control. It is significantly slower than using the git tools directly, but hopefully shows a bit how fast-import works. [jk: added header comments] Signed-off-by: Nguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy <> Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2007-09-03git-p4: Added support for automatically importing newly appearing perforce ↵Simon Hausmann
branches. If a change in a p4 "branch" appears that hasn't seen any previous commit and that has a known branch mapping we now try to import it properly. First we find the p4 change of the source branch that the new p4 branch is based on. Then we using git rev-list --bisect to locate the corresponding git commit to that change. Finally we import all changes in the new p4 branch up to the current change and resume with the regular import. Signed-off-by: Simon Hausmann <>
2007-09-03git-p4: Cleanup; moved the (duplicated) code for turning a branch into a git ↵Simon Hausmann
ref (for example foo -> refs/remotes/p4/<project>/foo) into a separate method. Signed-off-by: Simon Hausmann <>

2007-09-03git-p4: Cleanup; Turn self.revision into a function local variable (it's not ↵Simon Hausmann
used anywhere outside the function). Signed-off-by: Simon Hausmann <>
2007-09-03git-p4: Cleanup; moved the code to import a list of p4 changes using ↵Simon Hausmann
fast-import into a separate member function of P4Sync. Signed-off-by: Simon Hausmann <>
2007-09-03git-p4: Cleanup; moved the code for getting a sorted list of p4 changes for ↵Simon Hausmann
a list of given depot paths into a standalone method. Signed-off-by: Simon Hausmann <>
2007-09-03git-p4: After submission to p4 always synchronize from p4 again (into ↵Simon Hausmann
refs/remotes). Whether to rebase HEAD or not is still left as question to the end-user. Signed-off-by: Simon Hausmann <>
2007-09-03git-p4: Always call 'p4 sync ...' before submitting to Perforce.Simon Hausmann

2007-08-25git-p4: Fix warnings about non-existant refs/remotes/p4/HEAD ref when ↵Simon Hausmann
running git-p4 sync the first time after a git clone. Don't create the p4/HEAD symbolic ref if p4/master doesn't exist yet. Signed-off-by: Simon Hausmann <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2007-08-25git-p4: Make 'git-p4 branches' work after an initial clone with git clone ↵Simon Hausmann
from an origin-updated repository. After a clone with "git clone" of a repository the p4 branches are only in remotes/origin/p4/* and not in remotes/p4/*. Separate the code for detection and creation out of the P4Sync command class into standalone methods and use them from the P4Branches command.

2007-08-13git-p4: Fix the sorting of changelists when cloning a Perforce repository.Reece H. Dunn
When performing a git-p4 clone operation on a Perforce repository, where the changelists change in order of magnitude (e.g. 100 to 1000), the set of changes to import from is not sorted properly. This is because the data in the list is strings not integers. The other place where this is done already converts the value to an integer, so it is not affected. Acked-by: Simon Hausmann <>
2007-08-08git-p4: Fix git-p4 submit to include only changed files in the perforce ↵Simon Hausmann
submit template. Parse the files section in the "p4 change -o" output and remove lines with file changes in unrelated depot paths. Signed-off-by: Simon Hausmann <> Signed-off-by: Marius Storm-Olsen <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2007-08-08git-p4: Fix support for symlinks.Simon Hausmann
Detect symlinks as file type, set the git file mode accordingly and strip off the trailing newline in the p4 print output. Make the mode handling a bit more readable at the same time. Signed-off-by: Simon Hausmann <> Acked-by: Brian Swetland <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2007-08-02Sort output of "p4 change" in incremental import before furtherHan-Wen Nienhuys
processing P4 change outputs the changes sorted for each directory separately. We want the global ordering on the changes, hence we sort. Signed-off-by: Han-Wen Nienhuys <> Signed-off-by: Simon Hausmann <>

2007-07-18git-p4: Fix upstream branch detection for submit/rebase with multiple branches.Simon Hausmann
Don't use git name-rev to locate the upstream git-p4 branch for rebase and submit but instead locate the branch by comparing the depot paths. name-rev may produce results like wrongbranch~12 as it uses the first match. Signed-off-by: Simon Hausmann <> Signed-off-by: Marius Storm-Olsen <>

2007-07-17git-p4: input to "p4 files" by stdin instead of argumentsScott Lamb
This approach, suggested by Alex Riesen, bypasses the need for xargs-style argument list handling. The handling in question looks broken in a corner case with SC_ARG_MAX=4096 and final argument over 96 characters. Signed-off-by: Scott Lamb <> Signed-off-by: Simon Hausmann <>
2007-07-17git-p4: use subprocess in p4CmdListScott Lamb
This allows bidirectional piping - useful for "-x -" to avoid commandline arguments - and is a step toward bypassing the shell. Signed-off-by: Scott Lamb <> Signed-off-by: Simon Hausmann <>
2007-07-15Fix git-p4 on Windows to not use the Posix sysconf function.Marius Storm-Olsen
Add condition for Windows, since it doesn't support the os.sysconf module. We hardcode the commandline limit to 2K, as that should work on most Windows platforms. Signed-off-by: Marius Storm-Olsen <> Acked-by: Simon Hausmann <> Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
2007-06-22Import branch 'git-p4' of git:// O. Pearce
Simon has asked that the git.git project include the git-p4 project as at least a contrib/fast-import within git.git. I think it makes a lot of sense, as git-p4 nicely complements the only other in-tree fast-import user: import-tars.perl. git-p4 is offered under the MIT license by its authors.
2007-06-21Make it possible to specify the HEAD for the internal ↵Simon Hausmann
findUpstreamBranchPoint function. This isn't used right now in git-p4 but I use it in an external script that loads git-p4 as module. Signed-off-by: Simon Hausmann <>
2007-06-20Added git-p4 branches command that shows the mapping of perforce depot paths ↵Simon Hausmann

Signed-off-by: Simon Hausmann <>
2007-06-17Fix the branch mapping detection to be independent from the order of the "p4 ↵Simon Hausmann
branches" output. Collect "unknown" source branches separately and register them at the end. Also added a minor speed up to splitFilesIntoBranches by breaking out of the loop through all branches when it's safe. Signed-off-by: Simon Hausmann <>
2007-06-16git-p4 fails when cloning a p4 depo.Benjamin Sergeant
A perforce command with all the files in the repo is generated to get all the file content. Here is a patch to break it into multiple successive perforce command who uses 4K of parameter max, and collect the output for later. It works, but not for big depos, because the whole perforce depo content is stored in memory in, and it looks like mine is bigger than 2 Gigs, so I had to kill the process.
