2006-03-01Rip out merge-order and make "git log <paths>..." work again.Linus Torvalds
Well, assuming breaking --merge-order is fine, here's a patch (on top of the other ones) that makes git log <filename> actually work, as far as I can tell. I didn't add the logic for --before/--after flags, but that should be pretty trivial, and is independent of this anyway. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-02-26First cut at libifying revlist generationLinus Torvalds
This really just splits things up partially, and creates the interface to set things up by parsing the command line. No real code changes so far, although the parsing of filenames is a bit stricter. In particular, if there is a "--", then we do not accept any filenames before it, and if there isn't any "--", then we check that _all_ paths listed are valid, not just the first one. The new argument parsing automatically also gives us "--default" and "--not" handling as in git-rev-parse. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-07-06Remove insane overlapping bit ranges from epoch.cLinus Torvalds
..and move the DUPCHECK to rev-list.c since both the merge-order and the upcoming topo-sort get confused by dups.
2005-06-20[PATCH] Prevent git-rev-list without --merge-order producing duplicates in ↵Jon Seymour
output If b is reachable from a, then: git-rev-list a b argument would print one of the commits twice. This patch fixes that problem. A previous problem fixed it for the --merge-order switch. Signed-off-by: Jon Seymour <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-06-06[PATCH] Modify git-rev-list to linearise the commit history in merge
This patch linearises the GIT commit history graph into merge order which is defined by invariants specified in Documentation/git-rev-list.txt. The linearisation produced by this patch is superior in an objective sense to that produced by the existing git-rev-list implementation in that the linearisation produced is guaranteed to have the minimum number of discontinuities, where a discontinuity is defined as an adjacent pair of commits in the output list which are not related in a direct child-parent relationship. With this patch a graph like this: a4 --- | \ \ | b4 | |/ | | a3 | | | | | a2 | | | | c3 | | | | | c2 | b3 | | | /| | b2 | | | c1 | | / | b1 a1 | | | a0 | | / root Sorts like this: = a4 | c3 | c2 | c1 ^ b4 | b3 | b2 | b1 ^ a3 | a2 | a1 | a0 = root Instead of this: = a4 | c3 ^ b4 | a3 ^ c2 ^ b3 ^ a2 ^ b2 ^ c1 ^ a1 ^ b1 ^ a0 = root A test script, t/, includes a test which demonstrates that the linearisation produced by --merge-order has less discontinuities than the linearisation produced by git-rev-list without the --merge-order flag specified. To see this, do the following: cd t ./ cd trash cat actual-default-order cat actual-merge-order The existing behaviour of git-rev-list is preserved, by default. To obtain the modified behaviour, specify --merge-order or --merge-order --show-breaks on the command line. This version of the patch has been tested on the git repository and also on the linux-2.6 repository and has reasonable performance on both - ~50-100% slower than the original algorithm. This version of the patch has incorporated a functional equivalent of the Linus' output limiting algorithm into the merge-order algorithm itself. This operates per the notes associated with Linus' commit 337cb3fb8da45f10fe9a0c3cf571600f55ead2ce. This version has incorporated Linus' feedback regarding proposed changes to rev-list.c. (see: [PATCH] Factor out filtering in rev-list.c) This version has improved the way sort_first_epoch marks commits as uninteresting.
