2006-06-10shared repository: optionally allow reading to "others".Junio C Hamano
This enhances core.sharedrepository to have additionally specify that read and exec permissions to be given to others as well. It is useful when serving a repository via gitweb and git-daemon that runs as a user outside the project group. The configuration item can take the following values: [core] sharedrepository ; the same as "group" sharedrepository = true ; ditto sharedrepository = 1 ; ditto sharedrepository = group ; allow rwx to group sharedrepository = all ; allow rwx to group, allow rx to other sharedrepository = umask ; not shared - use umask It also extends "git init-db" to take "--shared=all" and friends from the command line.

2006-05-18Log ref updates to logs/refs/<ref>Shawn Pearce
If config parameter core.logAllRefUpdates is true or the log file already exists then append a line to ".git/logs/refs/<ref>" whenever git-update-ref <ref> is executed. Each log line contains the following information: oldsha1 <SP> newsha1 <SP> committer <LF> where committer is the current user, date, time and timezone in the standard GIT ident format. If the caller is unable to append to the log file then git-update-ref will fail without updating <ref>. An optional message may be included in the log line with the -m flag. Signed-off-by: Shawn O.

2006-05-03core.prefersymlinkrefs: use symlinks for .git/HEADJunio C Hamano
When inspecting a project whose build infrastructure used to assume that .git/HEAD is a symlink ref, core.prefersymlinkrefs in the config file of such a project would help to bisect its history. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2006-02-27apply --whitespace: configuration option.Junio C Hamano
The new configuration option apply.whitespace can take one of "warn", "error", "error-all", or "strip". When git-apply is run to apply the patch to the index, they are used as the default value if there is no command line --whitespace option. Andrew can now tell people who feed him git trees to update to this version and say: git repo-config apply.whitespace error Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-02-09"Assume unchanged" gitJunio C Hamano
This adds "assume unchanged" logic, started by this message in the list discussion recently: <> This is a workaround for filesystems that do not have lstat() that is quick enough for the index mechanism to take advantage of. On the paths marked as "assumed to be unchanged", the user needs to explicitly use update-index to register the object name to be in the next commit. You can use two new options to update-index to set and reset the CE_VALID bit: git-update-index --assume-unchanged path... git-update-index --no-assume-unchanged path... These forms manipulate only the CE_VALID bit; it does not change the object name recorded in the index file. Nor they add a new entry to the index. When the configuration variable "core.ignorestat = true" is set, the index entries are marked with CE_VALID bit automatically after: - update-index to explicitly register the current object name to the index file. - when update-index --refresh finds the path to be up-to-date. - when tools like read-tree -u and apply --index update the working tree file and register the current object name to the index file. The flag is dropped upon read-tree that does not check out the index entry. This happens regardless of the core.ignorestat settings. Index entries marked with CE_VALID bit are assumed to be unchanged most of the time. However, there are cases that CE_VALID bit is ignored for the sake of safety and usability: - while "git-read-tree -m" or git-apply need to make sure that the paths involved in the merge do not have local modifications. This sacrifices performance for safety. - when git-checkout-index -f -q -u -a tries to see if it needs to checkout the paths. Otherwise you can never check anything out ;-). - when git-update-index --really-refresh (a new flag) tries to see if the index entry is up to date. You can start with everything marked as CE_VALID and run this once to drop CE_VALID bit for paths that are modified. Most notably, "update-index --refresh" honours CE_VALID and does not actively stat, so after you modified a file in the working tree, update-index --refresh would not notice until you tell the index about it with "git-update-index path" or "git-update-index --no-assume-unchanged path". This version is not expected to be perfect. I think diff between index and/or tree and working files may need some adjustment, and there probably needs other cases we should automatically unmark paths that are marked to be CE_VALID. But the basics seem to work, and ready to be tested by people who asked for this feature. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-12-24Introduce core.sharedrepositoryJohannes Schindelin
If the config variable 'core.sharedrepository' is set, the directories $GIT_DIR/objects/ $GIT_DIR/objects/?? $GIT_DIR/objects/pack $GIT_DIR/refs $GIT_DIR/refs/heads $GIT_DIR/refs/heads/tags are set group writable (and g+s, since the git group may be not the primary group of all users). Since all files are written as lock files first, and then moved to their destination, they do not have to be group writable. Indeed, if this leads to problems you found a bug. Note that -- as in my first attempt -- the config variable is set in the function which checks the repository format. If this were done in git_default_config instead, a lot of programs would need to be modified to call git_config(git_default_config) first. [jc: git variables should be in environment.c unless there is a compelling reason to do otherwise.] Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2005-11-15Add config variable core.symrefsonlyJohannes Schindelin
This allows you to force git to avoid symlinks for refs. Just add something like [core] symrefsonly = true to .git/config. Don´t forget to "git checkout your_branch", or it does not do anything... Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-10-12Use git config file for committer name and email infoLinus Torvalds
This starts using the "" and "" config variables if they exist as the default name and email when committing. This means that you don't have to use the GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL environment variable to override your email - you can just edit the config file instead. The patch looks bigger than it is because it makes the default name and email information non-static and renames it appropriately. And it moves the common git environment variables into a new library file, so that you can link against libgit.a and get the git environment without having to link in zlib and libcrypt. In short, most of it is renaming and moving, the real change core is just a few new lines in "git_default_config()" that copies the user config values to the new base. It also changes "git-var -l" to list the config variables. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
